Check the balance on a debit card by calling the customer service number listed on the debit card. Additionally, some debit cards have a website where the debit card balance is available through online account access.
Debit cards are either prepaid cards purchased at various retailers or are issued by banks to checking account holders. The balance is checked in various ways, depending on the issuer. Debit card holders can check the balance at ATMs that accept the debit card, opt to receive text messages or have paper statements sent via postal mail. Some debit cards offer email notifications containing the account balance.
