Card Controls - Card Activity Alerts

Stay informed about your spending
Transaction alerts in Card Controls can be enabled for all transactions. Getting an alert about every card transaction can help you quickly respond to fraudulent or suspicious activity. If you receive a notification about a transaction you didn't make or can't account for, disable your card with Card Controls and contact GreenState to report the suspicious activity.

Transaction alerts may also be enabled for select transactions that meet criteria you choose like only getting alerts for transactions over a certain dollar value or for ecommerce transactions.

Card activity alerts can be delivered via SMS and/or Email.

Looking for balance alerts?

Balance alerts and alerts for other types of accounts or transacations can be found in online banking under the main menu Settings > Alerts option.
