CardValet, now available at Heartland Bank, is a card management and fraud mitigation tool that enables cardholders to control when, where and how their debit cards are used. With CardValet, you can control your spending and protect yourself against fraud, all through a simple, free mobile app on your phone.

Helps With Budgeting

If you're trying to establish or stick to a budget, CardValet can help. Set spending limits for general use or specify thresholds by merchant types, such as gas, groceries or retail stores. You can also establish these controls by location. The flexible app lets you change these parameters anytime with ease via your mobile device. Going on vacation? Holiday shopping? Simply update your transaction controls to fit your spending needs.

Fraud Protection

A lost or stolen card is just one area of concern in today’s world where Identity theft, skimming and other attacks are an unfortunate reality. Turning your debit card off when you’re not using it helps safeguard against fraud. When your card is “off,” no signature or pin-based transactions will be approved. Transaction controls that allow your debit card to work only in specific locations or geographic areas, add another layer of protection. And real-time alerts keep you informed when your card is used or declined.

Business Use

CardValet is a great tool for controlling business spending on a debit card. Use the transaction controls for merchant codes, location and thresholds to ensure employee spending adheres to your company policies.

Review Balances and Transactions

Monitor your finances from anywhere. Use the CardValet app to check your account balances.

Getting started is easy. Simply download the CardValet app to your mobile devices then customize usage settings and alert preferences. CardValet can report or restrict PIN and signature transactions performed by debit cards, enabling cardholders to manage, track and report specific types of transactions and quickly detect unauthorized activity. Cardholders can customize their experiences by choosing from a variety of options.

CardValet is available today for debit cards and can be enabled through the Mobile App or our CardValet page, so download it today. Coming soon - CardValet for credit cards!
