  • Check eligibility by entering the first nine digits of your debit card.
  • Creat an account.
  • Register your email address.  A verification email with a code will be sent to your email address.  Enter that code to confirm your email address.
  • Choose which of the following three alerts you would like to enroll in:
  1. purchases reaching a certain dollar amount
  2. international purchases
  3. purchases made on the internet

*A qualified transaction is any transaction routed through Visa.
