Access Card Debit Card
Your BlueShore Financial Access Card is a great alternative to carrying cash, allowing you to pay for purchases at virtually any Canadian and many U.S. retailers. It's also required for Online and Mobile Banking and for ATM access.
ATM access and purchases.
Your Access Card offers convenient access to over 4,500 surcharge-free ATMS across Canada on THE EXCHANGE® network or through the ACCULINK® service, as well as over 500,000 Accel® ATMs in the U.S. You can also use it to access your accounts and withdraw funds from ATMs worldwide through the Mastercard® or Cirrus® international networks.
Making purchases with your Access Card couldn’t be easier. The embedded chip allows for highly secure and very convenient point-of-sale purchases at virtually every retailer and many services in Canada. Interac Flash® technology provides a contactless payment option for even greater convenience for smaller purchases. (Please read our FAQs for a full description of both chip and Flash® payment options.)
Cross-border shopping? You’ll have access to the U.S. Accel® point-of-sale debit network with more than one million participating merchants, including the majority of the top 100 U.S. retailers†. It works the same way as debit card purchases at home and, as an added value, a cash-back option is available at most merchants. So whether you're heading south of the border on vacation or just a quick weekend shopping excursion, look for the Accel® logo at participating retailers. (Please note that Flash® is not available outside of Canada.)
Your online and mobile connection.
Your Access Card also provides the Personal Access Number (the 16-digit Access Card number) that you need to do your banking online, by mobile, or through our automated telephone banking system.
Chip technology enhances security.
Your Access Card contains a tiny microchip which enables the card to store and process data. It enhances and speeds up security functions like card authentication and PIN verification, safeguarding it from misuse and counterfeiting.
Should your card be used in any way to make unauthorized purchases, you're fully protected – we take full responsibility for all substantiated losses.
Limits apply for your protection.
With your Access Card, you have a daily cash limit that applies to both ATM withdrawals and Interac® transactions. If you're unsure of your limit, you can call us at 604.982.8000 or 1.888.713.6728.
