Terms of use

*Feature to lock or replace a card

Lock 

  • You can temporarily lock your card as many times as you need and unlock it whenever you want. These actions are immediate when you request them in your online bank.
  • No time limit comes with the action of locking a card.
  • When the card is locked, no transactions can be made on the card. No pre-authorized debits can be processed. You can, however, pay the balance on the card.

Replace 

  • The action of replacing your credit card is irreversible and cancels automatically the actual card. You can only replace your credit card 3 times in a 12-month period.
  • No transactions or pre-authorized payments will be accepted on a replaced credit card.
  • Once your replacement request has been made, you will receive a new credit card with a new number in the mail. You must provide this new number to merchants with whom you have pre-authorized payments to avoid fees.
  • You must activate your new credit card before using it.
