We’re all working hard to keep each other healthy and safe as we continue to fight the pandemic. Now, with the latest advances in banking technology, doing things like shopping and sharing a meal with friends is safer and easier than ever before! HI Now host Kainoa Carlson spoke with Ari Haiola at American Savings Bank to learn more about the tools you can use.

The COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting the way that we live, work and play. With that in mind, many are still trying to limit physical contact with one another. Luckily, there are a lot of ways you can bank and shop while keeping yourself and others safe. At American Savings Bank, the team there works hard to provide the tools and technology customers need so that they can bank and live their lives anytime, anywhere. This includes the bank’s new contactless cards as well as features in its online banking and ASB Hawaii Mobile App.

Contactless cards are a fast, easy and secure way for you to check out when you’re out and about. The card uses a short-range wireless technology via a chip that works with enabled checkout terminals. All you need to do is see if your debit or credit card has the contactless symbol on it. If it does, simply tap your card on the terminal to pay – no need to insert or swipe! Your payment will be processed in seconds.

In addition to contactless cards, ASB offers a number of different products and services for you to bank and shop safely while on the go. Its online banking, available through the bank’s website and mobile app, allows you to transfer money, pay bills and check balances anytime, anywhere. You can also set up your mobile wallet on your smart phone, uploading your debit or credit card so that you can pay using the same contactless technology at checkout.
