Money Matters

A debit card (also known as a bank card or check card) is a plastic card that is used as a payment method to cash when buying things. It is similar to a credit card, but unlike a credit card, the money comes directly from the user's bank account when using a debit card.

When purchasing items with a debit card, you will be asked to enter your Personal Identification Number, or PIN. A PIN is a 4-digit number that is unique to your debit card. It's like a password for your debit card that only you should know. If your debit card is lost or stolen, nobody can use it without your PIN.

Most banks allow you to choose your own PIN, so it's important to do so carefully. In today's Money Matters, solve the debit card puzzle to learn what to NEVER use as your PIN!
