No wise cracks saying I should have known better. Everyone makes mistakes on their checking account.
In the good old days you used to get a call that you were overdrawn and needed to make a payment.
If you go into the red with Suntrust, they will take all pending items and arrange them from highest dollar amt. to lowest (they say that is a courtesy so big payments like mortgages and car payments will get covered) but it is just so they can reap $30 on every check that goes into the red. I just got $200 in fees for checks totaling less than $60.00.
If they had paid the smaller amounts first, only a few would have bounced.
