During the month of May, enroll your AOCU debit/credit card in our Card Management widget for a chance to WIN $50!1 


Card Management

  • Block/Unblock
    With just a tap or click, you can temporarily block your card. This is perfect for when you don't know where you placed your card. When you find your card, it's just as easy to unblock. 

  • Card Replacement
    If your card has been stolen or lost you can request a new card, and your old will be permanently closed. You'll receive a card replacement with a new number within 7-10 business days.

  • Travel Notice
    If you are going out of town, it's easy to create a travel notice on your own. Simply choose your dates and your destination.
  • Authorization Alerts
    You can set up custom thresholds to receive alerts when your transactions are authorized. Alerts help you to keep track of your card's usage and allow you to be notified of unauthorized usage. 
  • Foreign Transactions
    You can choose to allow or deny foreign transactions on your debit or credit card.
