Things you should consider before applying for a BCB Visa® Credit Card:

  • Affordability: Successful applicants may be required to cash secure the credit card at up to 110% of the approved credit limit. The cash security requirement means that in some cases, when a successful applicant receives the credit card, they must provide a cash deposit. This deposit secures the credit card and will be held by BCB while the card remains open and active.
  • Fees and Interest Rates: Fees and interest rates should be considered to understand the overall cost of using a BCB Credit Card.
  • Banking Relationship: Applicants must be BCB account holders to apply for a BCB credit card.


  • Inability to Repay: If you miss a required payment or breach the terms and conditions of the credit card the bank has a right to declare your card in default and may proceed with legal action.
  • Penalty Fees: If your card payment is late you may be subject to penalty fees.
  • Fraud Risk: Credit card fraud is a serious problem and can lead to significant financial losses. In addition to fraud protections at BCB, cardholders should take precautions to protect their cards. Precautions such as:
    • Keeping track of purchases and advising BCB in the event of any unrecognized charges.
    • Keeping your credit card number private and never giving the number to unfamiliar companies or individuals.
    • Ensuring you are always aware of web site security when making online purchases.

Key Terms:



Statement Cycle

A statement cycle for a credit card generally refers to the period from when a credit card statement is generated to when the associated credit card payment is due. The amount of time in a statement cycle may vary by issuer, but it typically lasts between 21 to 25 days in length. During this cycle, the cardholder will use the credit card to make purchases and will be billed for those purchases when the statement is generated at the end of the cycle.


Autopay is a feature offered by most credit card companies that allows you to set up automatic payments to your credit card account. Through this feature, your funds will automatically be transferred from your bank account to pay your credit card balance each month.

Transaction Email Alerts

Email notifications sent to cardholders for every authorization attempt on a BCB credit card. These alerts typically include the transaction date and time, amount spent, type of transaction and merchants name. Having these alerts are beneficial as they provide up-to-date information about their card which clients can review to confirm authenticity of transactions.
