Using Your Debit Card Internationally

Overdraft Privilege - Having a check returned due to insufficient funds can be a costly experience. With Overdraft Privilege, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing you have an extra level of protection against account reconciliation errors, unanticipated cash flow emergencies, or other unintended overdrafts. Other overdraft protection options include having funds transferred from a line of credit or other designated account to your checking account to cover payment when an unexpected overdraft occurs.******

Overdrafts can be created by: checks, ACH transactions, in-person withdrawals, Internet banking, preauthorized automatic transfers, telephone banking, ATM******, or everyday debit card****** transactions, and will result in a fee of $37 per item paid or returned. Accounts will be charged an overdraft per day fee of $5 after the account has been negative for 4 days.

Planters Bank does not encourage overdrawing your checking account. Overdraft Privilege is a non-contractual courtesy available to personal checking accounts in good standing and is subject to approval.

****** Overdraft Privilege is subject to approval. When we pay overdraft items customers will be charged our normal NSF-item paid fee for each item presented. You must bring your account to a positive balance within a 30-day period. Whether overdrafts will be paid is discretionary and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically do not pay overdrafts if the account is not in good standing, if the customer is not making regular deposits, or if the customer has too many overdrafts.

****** Overdraft Privilege will only be available for ATM and everyday debit card transactions if you authorize the Bank to pay those transaction types (see ATM/Debit Card Consent Form).  If you authorized Overdraft Pribilege for ATM transactions, please verify your balance before initiating an ATM withdrawal.

Tips on Avoiding Overdrafts - The following tips can help you manage your account wisely to avoid overdraft situations.
