Lost or Stolen Cards

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 Acadia debit card off when you’re not using it helps safeguard against fraud. When your card is “off,” no withdrawals or purchases 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.

Enable merchant controls and see transaction status


If you’re trying to establish or stick to a budget, Acadia Smart Card can help. Set spending limits for general use or specify thresholds by merchant types, such as gas, groceries, or retail stores. You can also set 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.

Business Use

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