Coming Soon: Contactless Visa Debit Cards

With Contactless Visa Debit Cards from Guthrie County State Bank, you'll simply hold your card near the contactless symbol on the point-of-sale terminal for a clean, easy, and fast way to pay. These cards have the same $1 per month ($12 annually) charge as our current GCSB EMV Visa Debit cards, with enhanced security and simplicity. Tap and pay, and you're on your way! Find out more by giving us a call or stopping by either location.

The caravan will meet up in the Guthrie County State Bank parking lot in Guthrie Center at 3:30 p.m. before traveling to Springbrook State Park at 4:00 p.m. for a brief program and a guided hike. Pack a picnic, bring the family and make an evening of it!

Don't fall victim - change your passwords!

When is the last time you changed your passwords? If you don't remember, then it's definitely time to make some updates! While many platforms use fingerprint or facial recognition technology these days, creating a solid series of passwords is still necessary. Here are some tips from the IRS on creating strong passwords:

  • Use word phrases that are easy to remember rather than random letters, characters and numbers that cannot be easily recalled.
  • Use a minimum of eight characters; longer is better.
  • Use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, i.e., XYZ, 567, !@#.
  • Avoid personal information or common passwords.
