Your cards, on your terms

Whether it's for business or personal use, your debit card is a valuable tool that can help you make fast purchases and easy payments. But it's also a tempting target for identity thieves and others seeking access to your financial data. At Patriot Bank, we can help protect you with CardValet®, a card management tool that puts you in full control of how your debit card is used.

Fraud Protection

  • Real-time alerts keep you informed when your cards are used.
  • Transaction controls allow your cards to work only in specific locations or geographic areas.
  • Turn your cards “on” and “off” when they are not being used or if they become temporarily misplaced.
  • When your cards are “off,” no withdrawals or purchases will be approved.

Control Spending

  • Set spending limits for general use or specify thresholds by merchant types, such as gas, groceries or retail stores.
  • Establish controls by location and change parameters via your mobile device.
  • With convenient features like threshold limits, merchant categories and location on/off controls, you decide where, when, and how you use your debit card.

Business Use

  • Use transaction controls for merchant codes, locations, transaction types and thresholds to ensure employee spending adheres to company policies.
  • Business customers must use the CardValet® app to monitor activity on their account.

Review Balances and Transactions

  • Monitor your finances anytime, anywhere by using the CardValet® app to check your account balances or review recent card transactions. Message and data rates may apply from your wireless carrier.
