Checking accounts come with features that can be a big help when it comes to managing your money. These tips will help you make sure that you get the most out of this common financial tool.

  1. Use a debit card

Debit cards allow for secure access to your checking account without needing to carry a lot of cash. Debit cards are accepted at millions of locations worldwide and can also be used at ATMs to withdraw money from your account.

  1. Track spending with Online Banking

Online Banking allows you to monitor your account information by signing in to your account from your computer. Sunset Bank and Savings’ TouchBanking Mobile App also allows you to complete a variety of transactions from your smartphone at any time.

Direct deposit puts money safely and securely into your account without any action from you.

  1. Manage overdraft fees

When you spend more money than what is in your checking account, an overdraft fee is incurred. Keep an eye on both your account balance and the money you plan to spend to avoid these extra costs.

Setting up automatic payments for recurring bills can be a helpful way to make sure that your bills get paid on time.
