Visa Purchase Alerts

A convenient tool for tracking your account 

With Visa® Purchase Alerts, you will receive a real-time email alert whenever a purchase made with your American Bank debit or credit card meets the criteria you specify when you register your card.  This free service will provide additional peace of mind as you can notify us as soon as possible when you suspect fraudulent activity.

  • Purchases over a specified dollar amount to help monitor your spending
  • International purchases
  • Purchases made on the internet or over the phone

Whenever a qualified Visa transaction1 meets the parameters you set-up, an alert will be sent to your registered email address.
