What is the difference between a visa card and a redicard

Hi Donna,


The Visa Debit Card is for customers aged 14 or older while the rediCard is for those under 14. The cards almost have the same features. The only difference is that the Visa Debit Card comes with payWave for tap-and-go payments and it can be used for international transactions.


Thanks,

Alison

We are seeking to transfer our Bank Account to a Credit Union, is there fees involved to do this?


Do you offer a Checking Account?

Hi Caroline,


Thanks for your question and for contacting Finder.


If you’ve finally decided to transfer to a bank, you can go ahead and open an account with CUA. We have listed some of the banking products of CUA on our website.


If you are concerned about the fees when closing your current bank account, I suggest that you check it with your financial institution directly. Fees charged by CUA will depend on the account you open. CUA has a checking account as well.


Meantime, you may like to read our guide on how to properly close a credit card.


Cheers,

May
