EBS Debit Card


Giving you more ways to manage your money every day

Our debit card is available to all our MoneyManager account holders and Teen Savings account holders once they have turned 16 years of age.

A debit card is linked to your bank account. You can use your debit card to pay for purchases in shops or online. You can also use it to withdraw cash at ATMs. Debit card transactions are taken directly from your bank account within a few days. Our debit card allows you to make purchases and withdraw money from your EBS bank account in Ireland and worldwide. For international use, you must supply us with your mobile phone number, which allows us to notify you for fraud prevention purposes.
