Recent Questions and Answers re: OECU and COVID-19


Debit Card alert

We wish to advise that there is currently an issue at some merchant locations, as a result of a software update, on their point of sale devices.

This problem is impacting all financial institutions that have issued new cards supporting the mandated changes of Combined Data Authentication. This is not a card issue, but is an issue with terminals at the point-of-sale.

Unfortunately, this is resulting in cards issued in 2019 (debit & credit) being declined.

If you experience an issue with your debit card it has been suggested that you could:

  • Split your transaction in two to allow for Contactless transactions (tap).

We recommend members to have credit cards if issued prior to 2019 or cash on hand as a backup until this issue is resolved.

The merchants impacted that we have been made aware of are:

  • Canada: Global Payments (Loblaw Brand merchants), Moneris (Costco, La Senza, Victoria Secret/Pink, Bath and Body Works, Esso, Petro Canada) and other small merchants

  • USA: NYCE network (Walmart, Costco, Shell, McDonalds and other merchants)

“Hard sell & up sell” practices in the financial world!

The concept of a “Sales Culture” has been around for a very long time. It is not something that our Board of Directors or I have embraced as the business model for our organization. We instead focus on providing exceptional service!
