Episode 004: The Truth About Your Debit Card

This post may contain affiliate links or links from our sponsors. Read our disclosure policy here.


Somehow we as a society have come to believe that debit cards are simply not safe. I hear this statement all the time:

“We must have a credit card in order to purhase anything because of the protection.”

If you believe this to be true, then let me hit you with some truth:

Your Debit Card is just as safe as your Credit Card

In this week’s episode of the Money Peach Podcast, I am going to explain to you exactly how your debit card actually works and what you need to do every time before you swipe that card. Hint: Have you ever wondered why there is either a VISA or MC logo at the bottom of your debit card? You’ll be finding out that answer inside this week’s episode 🙂

Also, I am going to dive into these new microchip cards that you may start seeing very soon if you haven’t yet already. They are actually a really good thing and offer you the protection you are looking for when you are using them inside the actual store (not online).

The more you know about your money, the more fun you will have with it!


If you are officially tired of 27 credit card offers in your mailbox every single day, then here is what you can do to stop the insanity….and save a few trees as well!


The first step to solving your problems with money is to take back control of your money. This always starts with the Budget.

Chris Petrie

Chris (Peach) Petrie is a personal finance expert, money coach, speaker and podcaster.

In 2011, Chris and his family were exhausted from living paycheck-to-paycheck and facing a mountain of debt. They started going against the society standards of misbehaving with money and made the decision to take back control of their lives and money. Within seven months they paid off $52,000, started saving like crazy and began building real wealth.

The word spread fast and Chris started showing friends how to create a budget over dinner. Soon after he started showing their friends how to do the same and eventually Chris started teaching personal finance classes around the community. As the need for the classes grew, Chris launched Money Peach in 2015.

Money Peach was created to help everyday people remove the stress and fear of money by showing them how to save more, make more, and keep more of their money.

Chris Peach has been featured in places like Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Elite Daily, and CheddarTV.

When Chris isn’t at “work” he can be found at the Crossfit gym or riding on the fire truck — Chris is also a full-time firefighter in Phoenix, Arizona.
