CARA Credit Union has announced an enhancement to their Current Account service with the introduction of Google Pay and Fitbit Pay.

“Our Current Account members can now add their Debit Card to Google Pay and Fitbit Pay digital wallets, making it easier for those preferring to use their mobile phone and/or Fitbit watch to make contactless payments,” said Pa Laide, CEO of Cara Credit Union.

“We have also launched a new and much improved mobile App for all our members. The new app gives you complete control of your Cara Credit Union account 24/7, at home or on the go,” he added.

The use of digital wallet payments provides a safer more secure way to pay that removes the need to handle payment cards, touch physical buttons or exchange cash.

The good news is that, with a Cara Credit Union Current Account, you can tap away in the knowledge that Contactless payments are free.

To set-up Google Pay and/or Fitbit Pay, just download the app, enter your Debit Mastercard details by scanning the card or entering the details manually, and submit a One Time Passcode.

You can use it wherever Contactless payments are accepted. You simply hold your mobile phone and/or Fitbit device near a payment terminal to make a Contactless payment.

Pa added, “As Christmas is so close, we are feeling extra generous. We are giving one lucky current account user the chance to win a three-night stay with dinners, afternoon teaand spa treatments in either Druid’s Glen or Fota Island Resort.  All members have to do to enter is use their Current Account three times before December 31st. Additionally, anyone who opens a free Student Current Account, before January 31st, will be automatically entered into a competition to win the latest iPhone 12 and a Fitbit.”
