Overdraft Privilege Program

 

Overdraft Privilege Program
Exchange Bank offers an Overdraft Privilege program that allows a customer to overdraw their checking account up to a pre-approved and predetermined amount for a fee per item. The fee is $30.00 per item up to a maximum of $150.00 in any one day. The Overdraft Privilege program is designed to protect you from INADVERTANT overdrafts only. Overdrawing your account on a regular basis can be costly. Overdraft fees can be created by check, in-person withdrawal, ATM withdrawal, or other EFT means. There are less costly alternatives to the Overdraft Privilege program. They are:
·         You can set up a savings account or another checking account to transfer funds to your checking account in the event funds are not available to cover an overdraft.
·         A loan or a personal line of credit (if you qualify) may be more practical than Overdraft Privilege.
Whether your overdrafts will be paid is discretionary and we reserve the right not to pay.
