Simply present your card to the cashier, or select the "credit" option when prompted, and sign your receipt. Some merchants may ask you to enter your PIN. If you prefer, you may indicate to the cashier that you would like to complete your purchase as a credit transaction. Either method is fine but selecting "credit" gives you all your Platinum CheckCard benefits, plus Visa's Zero Liability, and you can avoid extra usage fees that some transactions might otherwise require. And if you use your Regions Platinum Visa CheckCard to place a phone or Internet order, simply provide your card number and expiration date. All purchases, regardless of the method by which they are completed, will be deducted right from your Regions checking account.

Safety Tips when using ATMs
For your protection and to ensure that you are the only one with access to your account, please observe these safety tips when using an ATM:

  • Do not use an ATM if you are uncomfortable with the surroundings. If suspicious-looking individuals are loitering about, wait until the premise is clear or use another ATM.
  • Avoid using ATMs alone. Have someone accompany you, especially at night.
  • At night, choose an ATM that is well-lit.
  • Park as close as possible to the ATM.
  • When using a drive-up ATM, be sure that all doors are locked and all passenger windows are closed.
  • Have your card out and be ready when you approach the ATM. Complete any forms beforehand.
  • Be aware of the surrounding areas. Don't hesitate to cancel the transaction and leave if anything seems suspicious.
  • Don't display cash near the ATM. Count it later. Contact us if there is a discrepancy.
  • Use ATMs only where you feel safe.
  • Memorize your ATM Secret Code. Never write your Secret Code on your card or keep it in your wallet or purse.
  • Do not give information about your account or your Secret Code to strangers.
  • Stand directly in front of the ATM so no one else can see the Secret Code you enter.
  • Keep your ATM receipt. Personal account information may be printed on it.
  • Inspect your monthly statement, and report any unusual or unauthorized transactions.

We hope that you enjoy the convenience provided by our ATM Network and strongly encourage all of our customers to remember and practice these safety tips.
