Do you use an ATM/debit card to make purchases in stores?
I'm referring to a plain ATM or debit card, not a check card with a Visa, Mastercard, or Discover logo on it. (Please note the distinction; some people refer erroneously to both kinds of cards as "debit cards")
Just a heads-up for you: Beginning April 1, under the Dodd-Frank Act provisions regarding interchange fees, federal regulations will prohibit the use of an ATM card for making what are called "point of sale" transactions, where you swipe the card, enter your PIN, and take your merchandise (or gas) home.
As of that date, ATM cards will be useful only for getting money in and out of ATM machines, making transfers from one of your accounts to another, or getting information such as account balances.
If you have a plain ATM card, you should be receiving mail from your bank or credit union about the changes in the very near future.
