Your card on your terms. CardValet is a free app that gives you more control over your card activity. From your mobile phone, you can:

• Lock or unlock your Debit card with one touch
• Specify and monitor when, where and how your Debit card can be used
• Instantly act on transaction alerts

Download the FireFirstCU and CardValet apps via the App store or Google Play.

Turn Card On/Off

If you happen to misplace your card, leave it at a restaurant, you may temporarily turn your card off using the CardValet mobile app (similar to what you have seen on TV). This prevents the card from being used until you find it and does not trigger a new card replacement.

If you really can't find it, you have the ability to report it lost or stolen by calling 800-231-1626 and following the prompts to report the card lost and a new card will be issued.

Transaction Alerts

You may also set up custom alerts through CardValet. If you had previously registered your card with Guardian® Text Alerts, you will need to download the CardValet app and register your cards with the new program.

CardValet has interactive alerts to monitor transactions, usage preferences (dollar amounts, merchant types, GPS location with phone, etc.).
