VISA Debit Cards
It works just like a check, only faster. There is no checkbook to carry. No check to write. No waiting for check approval. It is accepted all over the world. You can use it to get cash from an ATM. It's your ATM card and checkbook rolled into one.
If you open an account at the Staunton, Bethalto, Maryville, Mt. Olive or Hamel location, you will walk out with your VISA debit card that day.

Debit card protection during data breaches
As you may be aware, there have been a number of breaches of debit card data at several national retail stores. While First National Bank has no control over these debit card breaches, we want to assure you that when there is a breach we will work with our debit and credit card processors to identify all customers that were impacted. These customers will then be contacted and new debit cards will be issued.
There is no way to tell when or where the next breach will occur, but we have some early detection tips for you. If you haven’t already done so, sign up for our Online Banking. At the top of our website you will see the Online Banking boxes in the upper right hand corner. Underneath those boxes, click on the word, “Enroll” and follow the instructions. Once you have access to Online Banking, make it a habit to check your bank account daily for any suspicious charges. If you feel your account has been compromised, call 618-635-2234 immediately and ask for Carol or Karen.
You may also set up email/text alerts with the “Notify Me Alerts” feature located in the main menu of our Online Banking. For example, if your balance dips below a certain amount, you will receive an email/text. You can even receive an alert if a transaction over a certain amount clears (you can set the amount for whatever you like). If you need help setting up these alerts, we will be more than happy to assist you. Call Robin or Casey at 618-635-2234.
Also, if you plan on going on vacation, you can call Carol or Karen at 618-635-2234 to notify us. That way your transactions will be approved.
Finally, for those of you who have had your debit cards compromised recently, we want to say thank you for your patience and understanding. We know how frustrating it can be and truly appreciate your cooperation.
