If you are more comfortable with cashless transactions when shopping at the supermarket or mall, you definitely need a debit card. A Jagoan who already has a Jago account has enjoyed many benefits. If you don’t have a debit card yet and want to have a Jago Visa Debit Card, you can definitely apply for one.
Before Jago discusses the Jago Visa Debit Card in detail, let’s start with knowing the benefits of having a debit card.
What are the Benefits of Having a Debit Card?
1. It helps reduce the risk of overspending
If a credit card provides the convenience of being able to buy whatever you want even if you don’t have the money, a debit card is just the opposite. A debit card can help reduce the risk of overspending. This is because a debit card is linked to your savings account.

2. It facilitates online transactions
Just like a credit card, a debit card can be used for various online transactions, from topping up your e-Wallets to online shopping at various stores around the world.
For those who are traveling abroad, paying for everything can be even quicker if the store where you are shopping or the mode of transportation you use has Visa PayWave. Just tap or wave the card in front of the machine that has the Visa payWave symbol and then wait for payment confirmation. No more swiping debit cards and entering PIN numbers.
3. It’s more secure because it’s a card
Carrying large amounts of cash everywhere when you want to buy a lot of things is not only inconvenient, but also less secure than carrying a debit card.
In addition, learning from the COVID-19 pandemic, cashless shopping reduces the risk of transmission, whereas money circulation knows no boundaries, increasing the chances of contracting the virus.
4. It makes it easier to track spending or expenses
When you buy or pay for something using cash, you inevitably have to record it manually, if you want to track your spending.
A debit card allows easier spending tracking, because every transaction with a debit card is recorded by the bank. You can track your expenses through an application or other banking facilities provided. Tracking expenses is important. You need to know how you are spending your money. This way, you can learn to manage your finances better.
