There's no better way to show your Cardinal Pride than carrying around a SVSU Debit Card, which can be used anywhere Visa® is accepted.

New Cardinal Perks members can also choose from a black or red SVSU tumbler at account opening, with a $20 minimum deposit.

Like all our debit cards, the SVSU debit card has modern time-saving and security-enhancing features:

  • 24/7 accessibility with our online and mobile banking services.
  • Instant card lock and unlock within our mobile app in case your card gets lost or stolen.
  • Fraud protection that alerts you when there’s suspicious account activity.
  • The latest in contactless payment - just tap your card to pay.
