H-E-B said its debit card can be used anywhere Mastercard is typically accepted and it offers an optional high-yield savings accounts for users, free cash withdrawals from H-E-B branded ATMs, no monthly fees to maintain an account and receiving paychecks two days earlier with direct deposit.

The cash back offer must be used within the H-E-B brand of products, which include the following names:
