When you add Online and Mobile Banking to Free Checking, you can choose from a range of automatic alerts.
Checking that watches out for you with real-time alerts
Knowing before it happens is the best way to prevent an overdraft. Receive push notifications or email automatically alerting you to potential overspending and overdraft fees. Also get notices on overdraft protection line of credit advances and Insufficient Funds alerts. All without logging into your account.
Checking that actively protects your money
If something doesn’t seem right with your account we’ll let you know immediately. You can select alerts that will tell you if a withdrawal amount is greater than it should be, if the number of transactions exceed a limit you’ve set, and if there has been a request for a new debit card on your account.
