However, overdraft advances will be charged a fee of $12.50 or $20 depending on the amount of the advance. Overdraft advances are also charged a higher interest rate than purchases. While linking your account to your checking account can prevent expensive overdraft fees with your checking account, it can potentially get expensive. Thus to be on the safe side, avoid overdrafts.
