(1) How does a check card differ from
a credit card?
Check cards are a convenient non-cash, non-check way to pay for everyday
purchases with money you have in your checking account. Unlike a credit card,
you do not need to establish a line of credit, nor is there a finance charge
or service fee with your Baylake Bank check card. However, for some
purchases you may prefer to delay billing or spread out payments over time.
That is when you may elect to use a credit card.
(2) What is the cost of a check card?
A Baylake Bank check card is available without cost
and there is no activity fee. So, not only will you be saving time at check
out, you will be saving money on the cost of purchasing checks. Thatís
right...the more you use your Baylake Bank check card, the more it ďpaysĒ
(3) How do I get a check card?
Almost any U.S. citizen age 18
or over with a
personal checking account
at Baylake Bank can be issued a check card. A
business check card is also available. Contact a
Personal Banker for more information or
request a check card now.
limits on my check
The daily preapproved purchase limit on a
Baylake Bank Check Card is $1,000 (signature
based) and if you use it at an Automated
Teller Machine (ATM) or use your Personal
Identification Number (PIN) at a merchant,
the limit is $600. These limits have been
established for your protection.*
*If in the rare instance that a bank
network connection becomes temporarily
unavailable, daily limits are automatically
lowered for your protection to: $500 for the
check card (signature based)
and $300 for ATM or PIN purchase
(5) Do I need a separate ATM card
for use at ATMís?
Although you may elect
to keep your existing ATM card, with a
Baylake Bank check card there is no need to
have both. The ATM features of your check
card act exactly like your present ATM card.
