Choose credit when using debit

When making a purchase with your Members 1st debit or travel card, choose credit rather than entering your PIN, for a more contactless experience when making purchases. Your purchase will process just as normal, but may post to your account’s transaction history a few days later when the merchant chooses to process all of their transactions.
