The cost of Overdraft Privilege
If you use the service, you will be charged our overdraft fee of $35 for each overdrawn item created by traditional paper-based check, an automatic payment (ACH) transaction, or a recurring debit card payment. Also, if you have requested us to do so, we may authorize and cover ATM transfers or withdrawals and everyday debit card purchases. Your available balance may be affected by authorizations which could create additional overdrafts and associated fees. For example, three paid items in one day will result in $105 in Overdraft Privilege fees and up to $140 per day.
The best way to avoid overdrafts and fees is to keep track of your account balance by entering all checks, debit card purchases and ATM withdrawals in your check register, reconcile your check book regularly and manage your finances responsibly. However, if a mistake occurs, Extraco offers additional ways to cover overdrafts in addition to Overdraft Privilege. This includes an Overdraft Protection Sweep from a Money Market savings account or other deposit accounts.
