We all make mistakes, and we all deserve some grace when we make them! Southwest Financial uses Courtesy Pay to give you some grace in case of an overdraft.
Courtesy Pay comes with these benefits:
- Comfort knowing transactions are potentially covered, even in cases of low balance*
- No embarrassment from a bounced check or declined card
- Peace of mind when you can’t pay for emergency transactions
- Prevents non-sufficient funds fees or returned item fees from merchants
- Forgiving fee for first two overdrafts
You can add Courtesy Pay to your account for free, and we will cover transactions up to your Courtesy Pay limit. You only receive a fee if we authorize a Courtesy Pay transaction.
If you’re ready to get a little bit of grace, opt into Courtesy Pay today!
*Whether or not Courtesy Pay covers a transaction is discretionary. Southwest Financial reserves the right not to pay if it deems that course of action appropriate.
