Top Reasons to Use Your Debit Card


Get to know the benefits of our debit card

A lot of us carry some cash and maybe a card or two without knowing what to use when. We spell out some benefits of using your American National debit card below. 

1. It’s a helpful savings tool.

When you enroll in our Round-Up Savings program, you can save money each time you use your debit card. We transfer the difference between your purchase amount and the next whole dollar amount to your savings account so you save money without even thinking about it. It really adds up over time. Read more about Round-Up Savings here.

2. We watch for questionable activity.

We constantly scan cards for suspicious activity and will notify you about questionable transactions.

3. It comes with a card management app.

Want to control when, where, and how your card is used? Or even turn it off and on. Download our MyCardRules app and manage your debit card from your smartphone. Find it here on Google Play and here on the App Store.

4. It comes with 24/7 Fraud Customer Service.

If your card is lost or stolen, you can report it 24/7. Just call 1-800.240.8190 and select Option 3 to reach our fraud services.

5. Our cards are issued instantly.

If you need a replacement card, you can get it THE SAME DAY. Just visit an American National branch and we’ll issue you a new debit card while you wait.

6. It works with mobile payments.

Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay - our card works for tokenized mobile payments. Learn more here.

7. It’s a secure form of payment.

The magnetic stripes on older cards store unchanging data. In that case, if someone gains access to that data, they have all the necessary information to make purchases, making these cards prime targets for fraudsters. Unlike magnetic-stripe cards, every time an EMV card is used for payment, the card chip creates a unique transaction code that cannot be used again.
That’s the power of our Visa(R) debit cards. Make sure you are reaping all of these great benefits!
