Protecting Your Pin Expand/Collapse

Remember, never share your PIN with anyone. To help protect your PIN, you should:

  • Memorize your PIN. Don't write it down, post it on your computer, carry it with you or attach it to your cards.
  • Don't disclose your PIN to anyone.
  • When selecting your PIN, don't pick the obvious. i.e. names, birthdays, address, etc.
  • Don't let your debit card out of your sight when conducting a transaction and don't let it be swiped twice.
  • Don't use ATM or POS (Point of Sale) machines where you don't feel safe.
  • Notify us immediately if you detect any irregular activity on your accounts or if your debit or credit card is lost, stolen or retained in an ATM machine.
  • Consider changing your PIN regularly.

Buyer Protection & Extended Warranty Expand/Collapse

This feature is exclusive to any member of Stride Credit Union with a Member Card® debit card. No applications required and no extra cost- you are automatically a part of this fantastic program! Didn't keep your receipt either? In most cases, your statement with the purchase can be used instead.

• Buyer Protection is available on most retail items purchased using your Member Card debit card. For a full 120 days after purchase, the item is protected if it's stolen, dropped and broken, or even destroyed in a fire. Valid claims will be settled by either replacing the stolen or damaged item, or by a cash payment in an amount not to exceed the amount of the total purchase price.

• Extended Warranty will double the warranty period of your purchased item, up to two years, as long as the manufacturer's warranty is valid in Canada for five years or less.

For example, you purchase a new TV. The manufacturer typically offers a one-year warranty. But, if you purchased the TV with your Member Card debit card, it would be protected under the terms of the original warranty for an additional one-year period.

 • Making a Claim: this can be done quickly and easily by calling
