How one guy, who saved for a wedding, a house, and the chance to retire, tried to make sure he would have the money to pay for it all.
Heading to college is an exciting time, but it’s also an important time for your finances.
Here’s what happens when you spend more than you have in your checking account — plus tips to help avoid doing it.
1 Turning off your card is not a replacement for reporting your card lost or stolen. Contact us immediately if you believe that unauthorized transactions have been made. Turning your card off will not stop card transactions presented as recurring transactions or the posting of refunds, reversals, or credit adjustments to your account. Any digital card numbers linked to the card will also be turned off. For debit cards, turning off your card will not stop transactions using other cards linked to your deposit account. For credit cards, turning off your card will turn off all cards associated with your credit card account. Availability may be affected by your mobile carrier’s coverage area. Your mobile carrier’s message and data rates may apply.
2 Not all smartphones are enabled with a digital wallet. Your mobile carrier’s message and data rates may apply.
