Hometown Bank is offering yet another convenience service for its customers! With the SHAZAM BOLT$ App, customers receive:
SHAZAM BOLT$ app allows cardholders to access balance information on their smartphones, tablets and home computers. Lost your card and want to put a temporary block on it but the bank is closed? SHAZAM BOLT$ can do this! Want to know the nearest surcharge free ATM? SHAZAM BOLT$ can do this too!
Reliable Fraud Protection
SHAZAM BOLT$ can immediately send notifications to cardholders when potential fraudulent transactions pass through their card. When cardholders are aware of suspicious activity, such as purchases exceeding cardholder-defined limits, they can contact their financial institution and put a stop to it! SHAZAM BOLT$ notifies cardholders of potential fraudulent activity such as:
- Purchase amounts exceeding the defined amount by the cardholder
- Card-not-present transactions such as Internet or phone purchases
- Suspicious transactions out of the cardholder’s normal transaction history
Another great feature of SHAZAM BOLT$ is the transaction control. This feature allows you to be able to pause your card, without affecting previous transactions, if your card is stolen or goes missing. With the quick tap of a button, you can block or unblock your own cards much like a temporary card block the bank does. This fast and simple security feature increases safety. It not only gives you peace of mind and saves you the hassle of updating automatic payment information, but also saves you money by not replacing cards should they be found days later.
The transaction-level block feature allows cardholders to be able to set blocks for three transaction types:
- Transactions over a specific dollar amount
- Internet and phone transactions
- Transactions outside the United States
If a block is in place for any of the above three transactions, the transaction will be declined on the spot. You, as a cardholder, will receive an alert each time an attempted transaction is blocked.
And last but not least, easily locate surcharge-free ATMs with our locator feature integrated with GPS technology. No matter where a SHAZAM BOLT$ user travels, they’re able to locate the nearest ATM along with directions!
We hope that you will look into this convenient financial tool as a way to help you keep track of your finances and ease your daily financial transactions. Please let your nearest Hometown Bank staff know if they can answer any questions you may have about this app!
