Engage is an ethical VISA debit card and account (Classic Account) that truly benefits FAIRshare Credit Union members. There are no nasty hidden charges and fantastic rewards that mean you can save money on your everyday shopping.
The Engage VISA debit card works just like an account from a high street bank. You can use your Engage card to shop, pay bills and save money with our cashback rewards program.
The Engage VISA debit card is a prepaid pay-as-you-go VISA payment card and a simple, safe and low cost alternative to carrying cash and for shopping online. In addition, you can earn cash rewards when you shop and use your card at participating retailers. You can use it wherever you see the Visa acceptance mark.
Cardholders “load” or transfer money from their FAIRshare account onto their Engage Card, and then use the card to buy goods or services in store, online or over the phone, just like a debit card. You can also withdraw money from cash machines or via cash back at major supermarkets.
You can only spend what you have loaded on your Engage Card, so there is no risk of going overdrawn – perfect for budgeting and managing your finances.
What does it cost?*
