CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Downtown Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bank Wednesday announced the introduction of its Duo Card, a combined credit and debit card providing customers the convenience of conducting all card transactions with one plastic. Fifth Third Bank is the first card issuer in the U.S. to offer this dual functionality and the Duo MasterCard cards are now available.
“Many consumers see the value in both debit and credit options and choose their payment method at the point of sale for a variety of reasons,” said Jon Groch, senior vice president and director of Bankcard Services for Fifth Third Bank. “The Duo Card gives these consumers the freedom to choose how to pay and access their cash without having to carry multiple cards.”
With the Duo Card, customers can choose to make purchases using either a line of credit or funds available in their checking account.
