The Calcasieu Teachers and Employees Credit Union Visa® Debit Card

Convenience and Community Support in One

Looking for a convenient and secure way to access your money, while also giving back to your community? Our debit cards offer a variety of features that make them the perfect choice for members of our credit union.

Card Control:

Our debit cards also come with Card Control, a feature that allows you to customize and manage your card usage from your smartphone. With Card Control, you can set limits, turn your card on and off, and receive alerts for suspicious activity. This helps you stay in control of your finances and protect against fraud. 

School Spirit Card Program: 

One of the standout features of our debit cards is the School Spirit Card Program. With this program, you can show your support for your favorite school by choosing a debit card featuring their logo. Every time you use your card, a portion1 of the funds will go back to the school to support their programs and initiatives. Schools include:  

  • Barbe Buccaneers 
  • LaGrange Gators 
  • Sam Houston Broncos 
  • Sulphur Tornadoes 
  • Washington-Marion Indians

C.A.R.E.S Fund: 

Finally, our debit cards also support the C.A.R.E.S. fund. The C.A.R.E.S. fund stands for Community, Arts, Responsibility, Education, and Service. Every time you use your debit card, $.05 of the transaction goes back to supporting non-profits, school systems, and the arts in the communities that we serve. This is a great way to give back and make a positive impact on your community. 

Debit Card Roundup: 

In addition to these benefits, our debit cards also participate in the Debit Card Roundup Program. With this program, every time you make a purchase with your debit card, the amount is rounded up to the nearest dollar, and the difference is transferred to a separate savings account. This is a simple and effortless way to save money without even thinking about it. Sign up for the debit card round up program today.
