1 Overdraft Protection Transfer fees may apply. If your savings or eligible secondary account does not have enough available funds to cover the necessary amount, we may decline to make the transfer. Other fees may apply. Please refer to your Personal Schedule of Fees for details. If you enroll in Overdraft Protection with your credit card, overdraft transfers will be Bank Cash Advances under your Credit Card Agreement and will accrue interest at the APR stated in your Credit Card Agreement. A fee may apply to each transfer. Please refer to your Credit Card Agreement for additional details.

2 No fee for incoming domestic wire transfers, stop payments and other services. Please refer to your Personal Schedule of Fees for details.

3 Three additional Advantage Relationship Banking accounts and four savings accounts with no monthly maintenance fee when you link them to your primary Advantage Relationship Banking account.

4 The chip on your debit card provides additional security only when used at a terminal or ATM that is chip-enabled.

5 Notify us within a reasonable time of the unauthorized use or the loss or theft of your card, card number, or PIN. Certain restrictions apply. Consult your account documents for details.

6 Zelle should only be used to send money to friends, family or others you trust.

We recommend that you do not use Zelle to send money to those you do not know. Transfers require enrollment in the service and must be made from an eligible Bank of America consumer or business deposit account to a domestic bank account or consumer debit card. Recipients have 14 days to enroll to receive money or the transfer will be canceled. Transactions typically occur in minutes when the recipient's email address or U.S. mobile number is already enrolled with Zelle. We will send you an email alert with transaction details after you send money using Zelle. Dollar and frequency limits apply. See the Online Banking Service Agreement at bankofamerica.com/serviceagreement for further details. Data connection required. Message and data rates may apply. Neither Bank of America nor Zelle offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle. Regular account fees apply.

7 When you place a lock on your debit or ATM card via Online or Mobile Banking, it will prevent most types of card transactions from being processed until you take action to unlock your card. Any virtual cards linked to the locked card will also be locked. However, the lock will not stop card transactions presented as a new recurring or a previously scheduled recurring transaction by the merchant, transactions using other cards linked to your deposit account, or the posting of refunds or credit adjustments to your account. Additionally, transactions that occurred prior to locking the card will not be affected. Locking your card is not a replacement for reporting your card lost or stolen. This feature is available on the Mobile Banking app for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Data connection required. Wireless carrier fees may apply.

8 You must be enrolled in Online Banking or Mobile Banking to participate in the BankAmeriDeals® program and have either an eligible Bank of America® debit or credit card or Merrill credit card. Earned cash back will be credited into an eligible consumer deposit or credit account within 30 days following redemption. Data connection required. Wireless carrier fees may apply.

9 You may elect to receive alerts via text or email. Bank of America does not charge for this service but your mobile carrier's message and data rates may apply. Delivery of alerts may be affected or delayed by your mobile carrier’s coverage.

10 To enroll in the Preferred Rewards program you must have an active, eligible Bank of America personal checking account and maintain a qualifying three-month combined average daily balance of at least $20,000 for the Gold tier, $50,000 for the Platinum tier, or $100,000 for the Platinum Honors tier in your combined qualifying Bank of America deposit accounts (such as checking, savings, certificate of deposit) and/or your Merrill investment accounts (such as Cash Management Accounts, 529 Plans). The qualifying balance is calculated based on your average daily balance for a three calendar month period. Refer to your Personal Schedule of Fees for details on accounts that qualify towards the three-month combined average daily balance calculation and receive program benefits. Eligibility to enroll is generally available three or more business days after the end of the calendar month in which you satisfy the requirements. Benefits become effective within 30 days of your enrollment, or for new accounts within 30 days of account opening, unless we indicate otherwise. Certain benefits are also available without enrolling in Preferred Rewards if you satisfy balance and other requirements. For details on employee qualification requirements, please visit the Employee Financial Services intranet site.
