I have one--it's functions as my bank's ATM card, in addition to being a
Debit Card against my checking account.  It looks just like a VISA Card,
has the VISA logo/hologram and all.  It is accepted by anyplace that
takes VISA, and is processed by their bank, being deducted from the
checking account when they process it.

I have never used it as a Debit Card, though.  Most retailers would
probably not even recognize it as a Debit Card, just as another VISA
credit card.
