The Engage Classic Visa debit card and account from Red Kite Credit Union

The prepaid card you can bank on!

Engage is the national brand for all credit union banking and payment services. Engage Classic is an ethical Visa debit card and account that truly benefits the credit union member. There are no nasty hidden charges and fantastic rewards that mean you can save money on your everyday shopping.

The Engage account and Visa debit card works just like an account from a high street bank but is only available from your Engage accredited credit union. You can use your Engage card to shop, pay bills and save money with our cashback rewards program.

Engage Classic is a reloadable prepaid debit card linked with an e-account that works similarly to a high street bank account. It is available only to credit union members and no credit checks are required.

It is NOT a credit card and you cannot borrow money with it or get into debt.

Engage Envelope – Money Management Tool

Want to take the stress and hassle out of paying your rent, mortgage, utilities, and phone bills? Your Engage account comes with a special feature that allows you to place money into virtual Envelopes so you don’t accidentally spend the cash you need to pay essential bills. Envelopes are simple to set up and can be done by the account holder or the credit union staff. Once set up you don’t need to worry about them. Money will be automatically ring fenced when it comes into your account.

N.B. Money loaded to an Engage card is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) unlike savings in your credit union account.
