With our new CardValet service, you’ll be able to proactively manage your new MasterCard® debit card anytime, anywhere, through your smart phone. You can monitor and instantly control card transactions and much more with a variety of custom options. Getting started is easy, simply download the CardValet app to your mobile device then customize alert preferences and usage settings.
Alerts can be set up to inform cardholders of specific types of transactions. For example, CardValet can send an alert when a card is used, when a transaction is approved and exceeds any of the permitted use policies, or when a card transaction has been attempted but is declined. The alert is sent in real time, immediately after the transaction has taken place or is declined.
Additionally, cardholders can establish location-based alerts and controls to restrict transactions to merchants located within a certain range of the cardholder's location, or, controlled for specific merchant categories or spending thresholds.
