Winning Bagels, Winning Smiles!

LEB employees were treated to winning bagels – compliments of First State Bank & Trust in Bayport.

This 4th annual friendly competition between the two community banks during Food Drive Month raised a combined total of $21,511. Lake Elmo Bank employees and customers raised $11,857 which included a matching donation of $4,218 from a local Stillwater business. The winning bank receives bagel breakfast delivered by the “losing” bank president – all in good fun.

All food and money was donated directly to Valley Outreach as part of their Feed the Family campaign in March.

Thanks to all who donated! Such a tremendous response for such a worthwhile community program.

Important MasterCard Changes Affecting Your LEB Debit Card

Effective immediately, MasterCard and VISA have introduced Automatic Biller Updater. Your MasterCard Debit Card is automatically enrolled by MasterCard to update participating merchants that you have authorized recurring payments to be deducted from your card. 

What does this mean to me and my LEB Debit Card?

When your LEB Debit Card expires,  MasterCard will automatically update the new expiration date on your debit card with the participating merchant.  Also, if your card is closed as a result of fraud or potential fraud risk and the checking account number attached to the card remains open, MasterCard will automatically update the merchant with your new card information.

At this time, you are not able to opt out of this added service.  If you have a recurring payment set up on your debit card and you wish to stop this auto-payment, you must contact the merchant directly and revoke your authorization.  For more information, click here.
