*An international transaction fee of 1 percent imposed by Visa will still apply, and some merchants may opt to charge withdrawal fees.

**There are four ways to avoid paying a monthly maintenance fee on your Ambassador Checking account—by using your Visa check card to make a purchase at least four times per month, maintaining a $1,000 minimum daily checking account balance or $5,000 combined balance in all your ECCU accounts (excluding business accounts), or utilizing direct deposit at least once a month (transfers between accounts are not included).

***ECCU’s online banking service runs slowly in certain remote locations if only dial-up Internet access is available (or Internet connection speeds are very slow). When you contact us, please ask whether our online banking service is the best way for you to access your account information. Visa® is a registered trademark.
