The Top 10 Ways to Make the Most of Your Maine Summer
Summer in Maine is magical – beautiful weather, cook-outs, fun times with friends and family, but before you know it – Poof! It’s over. Here are ten ways that you can stay connected with your finances and make the most of your summer in Maine.
1. Notify us of your travel plans
Due to the increased use of fraud protection tools, to enjoy uninterrupted use of your Midcoast credit and debit cards, it is important to notify us of your travel plans. Let us know where you are heading and we will clear the way for unlimited souvenir shopping!
2. Refresh your Midcoast Visa® Debit Card
Give your debit card a pre-vacation inspection and if it is in need of an upgrade, stop by our Bath or Thomaston office for an instant-issue card replacement.
3. Download Midcoast Mobile
Our mobile application is a must have. Midcoast Mobile allows you to manage your account, check balances, apply for loans, pay bills and even make deposits! Download it today before you hit the beach!
4. Debit Transaction Text Alerts
Sometimes changes to your spending patterns will trigger fraud protection on your account. Call us today and we will enroll you in our new debit text alert system which will allow you to confirm purchases on your mobile device and avoid blocked transactions.
5. Enroll in Free and Unlimited Bill Pay
No one enjoys paying bills while on vacation, unless they have Midcoast Bill Pay! This free and unlimited service allows you to pay bills from your computer or mobile device. No check writing, no stamps and no searching for a local post office!
6. Set Up eAlerts
Let your Midcoast account stay in touch with you with eAlerts. Log into Midcoast Connection and set up text or eMail notifications of account activity. eAlert options include account sign in alerts for fraud protection, transaction notifications for payroll deposits or large withdrawals, loan payment reminders, low balance alerts and more! Sorry, no Route 1 traffic alerts just yet.
7. Visit a Co-Op Shared Branching Location
If you are on the road and need to perform a transaction on your Midcoast account, you can visit any of the over 5,400 credit union shared branching locations nationwide. Better yet, download the Co-Op Shared Branch mobile application and find the closest location in seconds.
8. Enroll in eStatements
Reduce that post-vacation pile of mail to sort through by enrolling in eStatements. Access your statements electronically and protect your account information. No need to keep paper copies, your statements will archive and be available for viewing on our online account platform, Midcoast Connection.
9. Surf to a Surcharge Free ATM
Getting access to cash while on the road doesn’t need to be an expensive proposition. Visit any of the 250 Maine credit union ATMs for surcharge-free access to your money!
