You'll be able to handle many banking transactions at MoneyPass ATMs including withdrawals, transfers, balance inquiries and more.

You'll also have access to the MasterCard (CIRRUS) Network in the U.S. and internationally as well as PLUS/Discover/AmEx/VISA (fees apply).

Use your card instead of a check. So easy to carry, so simple to use. Minnwest's MasterCard ATM/Debit Chip Card is perfect for everyday and special purchases instead of a check. Just present it at the time of purchase wherever MasterCard is accepted and the amount will be deducted from your checking account. Every transaction is detailed on your checking account statement. (To protect against prevalent fraud using Point of Sale (POS) transactions in certain foreign countries, your debit card can only be used abroad at ATM machines. However, should you want to enable POS transactions on your debit card for limited periods of time while traveling abroad you may do so by contacting your bank representative.)

Get cash back when you make a purchase. Enjoy a great new feature of Minnwest's MasterCard ATM/Debit Chip Card. Now you can get cash back when you make a debit card purchase using your PIN number at a participating MasterCard merchant. That's over 700,000 retailers! You'll need to use your Personal Identification Number (PIN) to complete the transaction and your funds will be withdrawn from your Minnwest checking account. What a quick, easy, and FREE method if you are short of cash.

To apply for your Minnwest MasterCard ATM/Debit Chip Card, contact your local Minnwest Bank office today.

Direct Deposit

Save time and trips to the bank by having payroll and specified government checks automatically deposited into your checking account.  By using direct deposit, you are securing your checks from mail theft. 

Check Images

Check images are electronic images of your cancelled checks as well as withdrawal forms and deposit slips. The IRS considers them acceptable proof of payment as long as they show the check number, amount of check and payee's name. Check images is a safe and secure system because Minnwest Bank retains a permanent archive of your checks, withdrawals and deposits.  Should you need a copy of a cancelled check, we can provide you with one for a small fee.  Check images are available with your checking account statements.*  If you use Minnwest's Online Banking, you'll find your check images there, too. In fact, you can find both front and back of your cancelled checks online.

*Refer to the checking account brochure for details.
