How to avoid wasting money on bank overdraft fees

dhita yudha

A night out to the movies. A new shirt. Groceries. These are all things for which many people would gladly fork over $35. But overdraft fees? Not so much. And yet, that’s the average fee the country’s largest banks charge customers who overdraw their accounts, according to a NerdWallet study.

These fees occur when banks approve transactions that exceed an account’s balance. They are often assessed per transaction, so customers could face multiple fees in a day.

The study also found that the average credit union overdraft fee is nearly $10 less than that of large banks. Other institutions, including some online banks, don’t offer overdraft programs, and so debit card transactions that would overdraw an account are declined. That means the customer wouldn’t be charged an overdraft fee at all.

“We felt a large commitment like this is going to make more customers and future employees realize that Union Bank & Trust is committed to Omaha,” Weinandt said.

Among the building’s amenities is a nearly 5,000-square-foot third-floor terrace that will be a common area. The fifth floor will have a smaller terrace for UBT. Weinandt expects about 40 bank employees to be based at the new site.

With a history dating to 1917, UBT was founded as Farmer’s State Bank, and its officials describe it today as the third-largest privately owned bank in Nebraska. It’s owned by Nebraska’s Dunlap family.

A growth spurt in the past decade took the bank from $2.5 billion to $5.4 billion in assets, and $8.5 billion to $27.5 billion in trust assets, Weinandt said. UBT has about 950 employees and 38 full-service and loan offices in Nebraska and Kansas.

dhita yudha

A Florida man who went on an abusive tirade at a Costco after an elderly woman asked him to wear his mask has been fired from his insurance job. 

Daniel Maples, whose outburst in the Fort Myers store on June 27 was caught on a viral video posted online Monday, was a leading sales agent at Ted Todd Insurance. 

The insurance agency tweeted on Tuesday that Maples’ behavior was not in line with ‘company values’ and that he had been ‘terminated’. 

‘Threatening behavior and intimidation go against our core mission to be trusted advisors in our community,’ wrote the agency’s CEO Charley Todd in a follow up tweet that promised the company would follow up with a review of its internal culture.
