1. Debit Card Courtesy Pay  A discretionary service, which you must affirmatively consent to by opting in, that allows Affinity to pay certain transactions presented against a qualified checking account even if they cause the account to become overdrawn. This consent authorizes Affinity to pay overdrafts for the following types of transactions: ATM transactions and everyday debit card transactions. We will charge you a fee of $15 each time we pay an overdraft for transaction amounts of $75 or greater. No fee is charged for transactions below $75. There is no additional cost associated with this service unless you use it. Time for Repayment: We reserve the right to require you to pay an overdraft immediately. You are responsible to pay any negative balance in your account and should make every attempt to bring your account to a positive balance within 30 days. If, after a period of time, your account has not been brought to a positive balance, we may suspend your account and take other steps to recover the funds, including collection and/or legal action. There is no limit on the total fees we can charge you for overdrawing your account. Circumstances Under Which We Would Not Pay: The circumstances under which we would not pay an item or debit that would overdraw your account are entirely at our discretion, and we reserve the right not to pay. For example, we typically wouldn’t pay if your account is not in good standing, or you are not depositing regularly, or you have too many overdrafts. The fact that we pay one or more items creating overdrafts does not obligate us to do so in the future.
