Overdraft Options for Consumers with Debit Cards
Option A: (Default) No Overdraft Service  

If you choose not to opt in to our Courtesy Overdraft Option service or any other overdraft service, ATM and everyday debit card transactions that would cause an overdraft may be declined at no cost to you.

Option B: Linked Account Overdraft Sweep Service Inter-Account Transfer Fee (Overdraft Transfer Fee) $0

Per day in which an overdraft is covered by a transfer from a linked savings account.

Option C: Overdraft Line of Credit* Overdraft Protection Fee
(Overdraft Transfer Fee)

Per day in which an overdraft is covered by a transfer from a linked line of credit (subject to approval, including credit approval)

Option D: Courtesy Overdraft Option Insufficient Funds Charge - Paid Item Fee (Overdraft Penalty Fee) $38

Per overdraft item covered by the bank

Insufficient Funds (NSF) Charge – Paid Item Fee is not charged on an item that causes the available balance on your account to be overdrawn by $1.00 or less.

Maximum Number of Overdraft Penalty and NSF Fees per Day 6 You will only be charged this number of overdraft penalty and NSF fees per day, even if we elect to cover additional overdrafts or return additional items.
Minimum Amount Required to Trigger an Overdraft Penalty Fee   An overdraft item that causes the available balance on your account to be overdrawn by more than $1.00 will cause you to incur an overdraft penalty fee.
Extended Overdraft Service Charge (Extended Overdraft Penalty Fee) $23

Assessed when your account is overdrawn by more than $1.00 for seven consecutive calendar days. An additional $23 Extended Overdraft Service Charge will be assessed for every seven consecutive calendar days that your account remains overdrawn by more than $1.00. A maximum of four Extended Overdraft Service Charges may be assessed per overdraft occurrence. You will not be assessed an Extended Overdraft Service Charge if the overdraft is solely attributable to ATM and everyday debit card transactions and you are opted out of our Courtesy Overdraft Option, meaning you do not want BBVA USA to authorize and pay overdrafts on these types of transactions. This Charge is in addition to any Insufficient Funds (NSF) fees you may incur as a result of items being presented against insufficient funds.

* An APR of 21% applies to the Overdraft Protection Line of Credit. Having an Overdraft Protection Line of Credit does not guarantee you against paying NSF fees; your line of credit may not be sufficient to cover all transactions.

Processing Policies
Posting Order
The order in which withdrawals and deposits are processed

We process and post transactions - both credits (including deposits) and debits - throughout the day. This approach allows us to more closely match the posting of transactions on your account with the timing of your actual account activity.

Note: Deposits received and posted late in the day will not cover payments and withdrawals posted earlier the same day.

Summary of Our Deposit
Hold Policy

This is a summary and generally applies when deposit amount is less than $5,525 - absent a deposit hold. See the Consumer Deposit Account Agreement, Funds Availability Disclosure, for a detailed description of our deposit hold policy.
  • Cash deposit with teller or at ATM - Same business day as the day of deposit
  • Direct Deposit/wire transfer - Same business day as the day of deposit
  • Check deposit with teller or at ATM - same business day as the day of deposit
  • If something causes a longer hold on a deposit listed above, the first $225 of that deposit will generally be made available the same business day as the day of deposit
  • Mobile Deposit - Within 5 business days or less. Date displayed in mobile application.

A "business day" is a non-holiday weekday. At branches, business days end at closing time. At ATMs, business days end no earlier than 8:30 p.m.
