Debit Card Conversion

Debit Card Conversion Project

We are constantly working to improve your banking experience, and this includes our debit cards. To ensure the very best possible experience when using Great Meadow Federal Credit Union as your primary financial institution, we are:

  • Switching card processing companies and debit card providers from VISA® to Mastercard®.
  • Adding Checking Account uChoose Rewards®, allowing you to earn rewards points for debit card purchases.
  • Adding 55,000 more ATMs with the Allpoint® Network.

These decisions are with you in mind. We think you will find these improvements are designed to make your banking experience even more rewarding, faster, easier and more secure.

What You Can Expect

You will be receiving a new Great Meadow FCU debit card in the mail in July. Cards can be activated from your home phone number for best results. At activation time, you will be able to set your new PIN as well. Your old VISA® debit card will no longer work after July 31, 2020.

Finally, we have added 55,000+ surcharge-free ATMs as part of the Allpoint® Network. This is in addition to the 30,000+ ATMs we have through CO-OP Financial Services.


We are converting to a new vendor that will provide improved service and enhanced programs for our members.

Starting June 2020, our new Mastercard® debit cards will feature both EMV chip and contactless technology. Whether you tap to pay, insert or swipe, your debit card is now equipped with the latest in ID theft protection.

You have already started earning points. When you receive your new GMFCU Mastercard® Debit Card, register at the uChoose Rewards® website, uChooseRewards.com. When you register, we will retroactively allocate points under the new program for all purchases made on your old debit card dating back to March 31, 2020.

Great Meadow FCU members can always find the nearest participating surcharge-free ATMs using the Allpoint ATM locator online or by downloading the free Allpoint mobile app.

You still have access to CO-OP’s nearly 30,000 ATMs and 5,000+ shared branches. Find the services you need using the CO-OP locator
