North Shore Bank's debit cards are safe and easy to use while making everyday purchases both big and small. A debit card does not affect your credit rating, nor can you go into debt using one. Your North Shore Bank Debit Card is designed to make your life easier by giving you a convenient, safe alternative to using cash and checks.
Use it for routine purchases like your morning coffee, groceries, and gas, or those special treats like a new pair of shoes or a weekend getaway. Plus make purchases anywhere Debit MasterCard® is accepted around the globe at more than 34 million locations—in stores, online, and over the phone.
The North Shore Bank Debit Card comes with these great features:


  • Identity Theft Resolution Services
Assists you with credit bureau notification and credit card replacement, and provides you with an ID Theft Affidavit should you become the victim of Identity Theft.*
  • MasterCard Global Service™
Receive around-the-clock customer service assistance with Lost and Stolen Card Reporting, Emergency Card Replacement, Emergency Cash Advance, as well as assistance with locating ATMs and help with card-related questions.
  • MasterCard Zero Liability**
You pay only for the purchases you have authorized on your MasterCard card, and you won’t be held liable in the event of an unauthorized purchase. This coverage extends to purchases made in stores, over the phone, or online.


  • Safer than carrying cash
No need to risk having cash lost or stolen. You have greater financial control than cash. Purchase amounts are deducted from your checking account so you know exactly what you have available to spend.
  • Ability to track spending easily
Every purchase you make is listed on your monthly checking account statement for easy record keeping. Plus, you can use your bank’s online banking service to view your account statement that’s updated daily.
  • Convenience of not writing checks
No stamps, no trips to the post office, or wondering if a check arrived on time. You can set up automatic payments of bills like utilities or rent, so what needs to get paid gets paid—on time, every time.
