1 Although this account will help you avoid overdrawing your account in most situations, there may be times when your account could have a negative balance. One situation in which this could happen would be if a transaction for a certain amount is approved, but the final charge exceeds the balance in your account, such as when you use your debit card at a restaurant, and add a tip separately. In this example, the total transaction amount would result in you overdrawing your account, but we would not charge you an overdraft fee.
