From happening in the future again? Also anything else I should do? I froze my card and I am going to call my credit union Monday when they are open.

Exactly how did they get your details? was it at the cash machine with a skimmer or on an online fake site or malware?  would depend on if you needed to scan for malware and change your passwords. 

To prevent it happening in the future never enter your card details on sites that are not https also dubious sites I would steer clear of sites that are not well herd of. Always cover the digits when entering your pin at a cash machine and check it doesn't have a skimmer attached.

Use something like Malwarebytes browser guard to give you some protection from risky sites.
