A Point of Sale (POS) transaction occurs when a retail purchase is made with an ATM Card or VISA® Debit Card that requires the use of a personal identification number (PIN).

No, the VISA® Debit Card will only debit purchases from your Checking Account. If used with your PIN number at an ATM, you may withdraw funds from either checking or savings.

Federal regulations, in effect for over ten (10) years, limit the following transactions:

  • Automatic overdraft transfers from prime savings to clear checks.
  • Automatic overdraft transfers from prime savings to clear ACH withdrawals.
  • Online Banking withdrawals or transfers from prime savings.
  • Bank-by-Phone withdrawals or transfers from prime savings.
  • Point of Sale (POS) purchases made from prime savings.
  • ACH withdrawals from prime savings.

Once you have completed six of the above transactions (in any combination) during one calendar month, a service fee will be charged per transfer to pay incoming checks or ACH electronic charges. Only three of the six can be POS purchases from your prime savings account. If your monthly limit of six is exceeded for two consecutive months, future attempts to complete any of the above transactions during the same month will be denied. This will cause the checks or ACH items to be returned unpaid. Transfers and withdrawals at an ATM are not affected.

For more detailed information, please review the Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure.
