We have received calls from several customers saying they have received a text from “Bank of Clarke County Fraud” attempting to verify large purchases. This is a scam. We are also aware that our number 540-955-2510 is being spoofed to make the caller ID look like the call is coming from us. While that number is one we use, we will not ask you for any personal information if we call you directly. Please do not give anyone who contacts you personal information. If someone calling you requests personal information, please hang up and call one of the numbers listed on our website.

How do I earn points?
You earn points on qualifying purchases of $10 or more when you use your Bank of Clarke County Visa® Check Card or Visa® Business Check Card and choose the signature option. You can earn additional points for shopping at participating retailers and using your Bank of Clarke County Visa® Check Card for payment. Visit www.uchooserewards.com to view a list of participating retailers and their exclusive online offers.
What is a qualifying purchase?
A qualifying purchase is any signature-based purchase, Internet purchase, phone or mail-order purchase, bill payment, contactless purchase (i.e. purchases made by holding your Visa® Check Card or Visa® Business Check Card or other device up to a secure reader instead of swiping your card), or small dollar purchase for which you are not required to sign, made with an enrolled Visa® Check Card or Visa® Business Check Card , which is processed or submitted through the Visa® U.S.A. Inc. payment system. A qualifying purchase does not include a purchase made using a Personal Identification Number (PIN) or purchase you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN.
Generally, you can choose to do most transactions as signature-based. To do this, you must answer “CREDIT” when asked by a store representative, select “CREDIT” after swiping the card, or select “CANCEL when you are prompted for a PIN. When completely properly, you will sign the printed receipt or signature pad rather than enter your PIN into the terminal.
What can I redeem my points for?
It’s your choice! You can choose from millions of items in the online catalog, which include merchandise, travel, activities, events tickets, gift cards, and more! We will track your points balance and help you find exactly what you are looking for. There’s even a Wish List tool that will notify you when you’ve accumulated enough points for a selected item.
When can I redeem points?
It may take up to 40 days for points to be credited to your account. You must accumulate 1,500 points before you can redeem them for items in the online catalog and 5,000 points before you can redeem them for cash back.
Can I share points with other accounts?
