Register the Reka-Card and secure credit balance

Cashless payment and online credit management

From 2021 you will be able to obtain the practical Reka-Card instead of Reka-Checks at Coop retail outlets. With this card you can pay cashless at countless acceptance points and contactless as well for amounts of under CHF 40. As usual, you benefit from a 3% discount with the Coop Supercard. Register your Reka-Card so that you can easily manage your credit balance and see that it is safeguarded in case of theft.

The Reka-Checks remain valid and can still be used.

Register and take advantage of the following advantages

As soon as you have registered your card, it will be combined with a personal account. Without registration your credit balance is only linked to the Reka-Card and not secured if lost. For the first year, we offer you the account management fees. After that, these come to CHF 6 a year.

Protection against theft

All transactions are secured with a PIN number of your choice. In the event of loss, you can block your card via your customer account.

Practical function

You have access to the customer portal where you can check your transactions at a glance, change your PIN number and settle acceptance point invoices.

Online means of payment

When using certain partner apps, you have the possibility of providing your registered Reka-Card as a means of payment, such as with, for example, Mobility or purchasing tickets on the app SBB Mobile.
