First: Deposits made before the cut-off time are added to your account balance
Second: Transactions received real-time during the day are deducted as they occur if there is a sufficient available balance in the account to pay them. Example: ATM, debit PIN or teller withdrawals including cashed checks; transfers or Citibank Online bill payments initiated by you, debit card purchases at a merchant and most ACH debits* that we receive throughout the day
Third: Fees for services we provide that have not already been debited from your account are deducted from your available balance
Fourth: Checks presented for payment and any ACH debit* not deducted during the day are deducted from your remaining available balance in the order of lowest to highest dollar amount
*ACH (Automated Clearing House) debits are received electronically through a merchant you have instructed to bill your checking account — i.e., for your utility or phone bill.
