E. Online Banking Alerts

We provide automatic General Alerts and voluntary Account Alerts.

  1. Automatic General Alerts are sent to you following important account activities or when certain changes are made online to your Online Banking account, such as a change in your email or home address, telephone number, Online ID or passcode, insufficient funds, or irregular card activity. You do not need to activate these alerts. We automatically activate them for you. Although you may have the option to suppress some of these General Alerts, we strongly recommend that you do not do so since they provide important information related to your online security or account activities.

Voluntary Account Alerts must be activated by you.

  • Voluntary Account Alerts allow you to choose alert messages for your accounts. We may add new alerts from time to time, or cancel old alerts. If you have opted to receive a voluntary Account Alert that is being canceled, we will notify you at least 30 days in advance.
  • Each alert has different options available, and you will be asked to select from among these options upon activation of your alerts service.

Both automatic General Alerts and voluntary Account Alerts are subject to the following.

  • We may add new automatic General and voluntary Account Alerts from time to time, or cancel old alerts. We usually notify you when we cancel alerts, but are not obligated to do so.
  • Alerts will be sent to the email address you have provided as your primary email address for Online Banking. You can also choose to have alerts sent to a secondary email address, a mobile device that accepts text messages, or a mobile device that can receive our Mobile App Alerts through a push notification system. If your email address or your mobile device’s number changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. While Bank of America does not charge for the delivery of the Alerts, please be advised that text or data charges or rates may be imposed by your carrier. Changes to your primary and secondary email addresses will apply to all of your Alerts.
  • You understand and agree that your alerts may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors. We do our best to provide alerts in a timely manner with accurate information. We neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the contents of any alert. You also agree that we shall not be liable for any delays, failure to deliver, or misdirected delivery of any alert; for any errors in the content of an alert; or for any actions taken or not taken by you or any third party in reliance of an alert.
  • Because alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your passcode or full account number. However, alerts may include your name and some information about your accounts. Depending upon which alerts you select, information such as your account balance or the due date for your credit card payment may be included. Anyone with access to your email will be able to view the contents of these alerts.

F. ShopSafe®

We provide the ShopSafe® service to allow you to create a unique, temporary credit card account number for online purchases at a specified merchant. The number links to the real credit card number, but keeps that number private and protected. The 16-digit ShopSafe number is used just like any other credit card account number.

Bank of America customers with a deposit account may use the optional Bill Payment service in the following manner:

  • Payments can be scheduled from linked checking, money market savings, and HELOC accounts. (Does not apply to HELOC accounts opened in Texas.)
  • Payments can be scheduled from a personal checking or money market savings account maintained at another financial institution that you have added through the bill payment service. You certify that any account you add through the bill payment service is an account from which you are authorized to make payments, and any payment you make using the bill payment service will debit an account that you are legally authorized to use. When you add an account maintained at another financial institution, you do not change the agreements you have with that financial institution for that account. You should review those agreements for any applicable fees, for limitations on the number of transactions you can make, and for other restrictions that might limit your use of the account with the Bill Payment service.
  • Payments can be entered as a 1-time transaction up to a year in advance, recurring transactions or as payments that are automatically scheduled upon the receipt of an electronic bill (e-Bill).
  • Payments (other than payments to a Bank of America credit card account) entered on our system before 5:00 p.m. ET on a bank business day will be scheduled and begin processing on the same bank business day. Payments that are entered after this cut-off time or on a day that is a non-bank business day will be scheduled and processed the next bank business day.
  • Scheduled recurring payments that fall on a weekend or a non-bank business day will be processed on the prior bank business day.
  • You authorize us to make payments in the manner we select from the following methods:
    • Electronic transmission. Most payments are made by electronic transmission.
    • Corporate check- This is a check drawn on our account or the account of our vendor. If a Payee on a corporate check fails to negotiate the check within 90 days, we will stop payment on the check and recredit your account for the amount of the payment. If a corporate check is returned to you prior to the end of the 90 day period, please inform us immediately so that we can stop payment on the check and recredit your account.
    • Personal check – This is a check drawn on your account based on your authorization under this Agreement.
    • Scheduling Bill Payments
      • The scheduled delivery date is the date you enter for the payment to be delivered to the Payee. For payments made by electronic transmission or corporate check, the payment amount will be debited from, or charged to the account that you designate on the scheduled delivery date. If the scheduled delivery date is a weekend or non-bank business day, then the delivery date will be the prior bank business day. For payments made by personal check, the account you designate will be debited when the check is presented to us for payment which may occur before, on or after the scheduled delivery date.
      • For payments to a Bank of America loan, line of credit, or mortgage, Bank of America will process and credit the payment to the appropriate account effective the same business day, provided the payment is scheduled prior to the 5:00 p.m. ET cut-off.

If you do not, or if for any reason your account is not in good standing, you will be fully responsible for all late fees, interest charges or other action taken by the Payee. If we are unable to complete the payment because of insufficient funds in your account or some other reason, we will send you an alert to the email address you have provided with this Agreement. We will also notify you if your account is no longer in good standing and eligible to be used for bill payments. As indicated above, some payments may be made by a personal check. Since we can’t predict the exact date that a personal check will be presented to us for payment, please make sure you have sufficient funds in your account beginning a few days before your scheduled delivery date and keep such funds available until the payment is deducted from your account.

Bank of America credit card only customers may use the optional Bill Payment service in the following manner:

  • Payments to your Bank of America credit card account can be scheduled from deposit or money market deposit accounts maintained at another financial institution.
  • Payments can be entered as a 1-time transaction up to a year in advance, or as payments that are automatically scheduled upon the receipt of an electronic bill (e-Bill).

C. Email/Mobile Transfer Network Service (All functionality is not yet available for all customers. We will notify you when additional functionality is available for your Email/Mobile Transfer Network Service)

Description of Service and Consent
Bank of America customers with a personal checking or savings account may send one-time person-to-person transfers to another Bank of America customer or a customer of another bank by using a recipient’s email address or mobile phone number. In order to participate, you must first register through online banking from your desktop or laptop computer. Recipients must also register with Bank of America or another bank participating in the Email/Mobile Transfer Network or with clearXchange, a company that arranges for person to person payments to customers of any U.S. financial institution. Once registered, you may send a money transfer using Online Banking or Mobile Banking by entering the email address or mobile phone number of the recipient. By participating in the Email/Mobile Transfer Network Service, you are representing to us that you are the owner or you have the authority to act on behalf of the owner of the mobile phone number or email address you are using to send or receive messages regarding money transfers. In addition, you are consenting to the receipt of emails or automated text messages from Bank of America, or its agent, regarding the transfers and represent to us that you have obtained the consent of the recipients of your intended transfers to the receipt of such emails or automated text messages.

2. Scheduling Transfers
Once registered, you may make one-time transfers at any time using Online Banking or Mobile Banking by entering the email address or mobile phone number of the recipient. An unregistered recipient must register within 14 days and set up the same email address or mobile phone number that you entered to send them money. If the recipient does not register, set up an email address or mobile number and accept the transfer within 14 days, the transaction will be cancelled. During this period, a hold will be placed on the sender’s account for the amount of the transfer. Once the recipient has successfully enrolled in the Email/Mobile Transfer Network, transfers will automatically be debited from the sender’s account and deposited in the recipient’s account. If the sender and recipient are both Bank of America customers enrolled in the Email/Mobile Transfer Network, transfers will be immediately debited from the sender’s account and reflected in the recipient’s account in accordance with the time frames indicated in Transfers to Deposit Accounts in Section 3.A. If the sender and recipient are both enrolled in the Email/Mobile Transfer Network but are customers of different banks, transfers will be immediately debited from the sender’s account and, if completed by 9:00 p.m. ET, will be delivered to the recipient’s bank within three business days. Bank of America is not responsible for any failure of another bank to timely credit its customer’s account.

You acknowledge and agree that payment transfers will be completed using only the email address or mobile phone number you enter even if it identifies a person different from your intended recipient. The name you enter will help you identify your intended recipient in the drop down menu and your transaction history but will not be used to process payments. Please make sure you accurately enter the recipient’s email address or mobile phone number since your obligation to pay for the transfer will not be excused by an error in the information you enter.

Transfer Instructions relating to external accounts and the transmission and issuance of data related to such Instructions shall be received pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association (“NACHA”) and the applicable automated clearing house (“Regional ACH”) (collectively, the “Rules”) and you and we agree to be bound by such Rules as in effect from time to time. In accordance with such Rules, any credit to an account shall be provisional until such credit has been finally settled by us or the third party institution which holds the account.

3. Fees
There is no fee for sending or receiving a transfer under the Email/Mobile Transfer Service. Please note that your mobile carrier may charge you for text messaging. Please check your mobile service agreement for details on applicable fees.

You may also make payments without a transaction fee by using Bill Pay (described in Section 3.B above). Bill Pay allows you to transfer money to individuals, regardless of whether they are Bank of America customers, usually within 4 business days. You may also make transfers without charge to other Bank of America customers through online banking if you know the recipient’s account number.

4. Mobile Carrier Information

Federal regulations and the deposit agreement impose limits on the number of certain types of withdrawals and transfers you can make each month from a savings and money market deposit account. You can make no more than a total of six (6) automatic or preauthorized transfers, telephone transfers, or Online Banking transfers or payments from a savings or money market deposit account each monthly statement cycle (each month for savings accounts with a quarterly statement cycle).

If you exceed these limits on more than an occasional basis, we convert your account to another type of account and your account may no longer earn interest.

For all Email/Mobile Transfer Network Service transactions 1.877.343.7174

If you are calling from outside of the continental U.S., call us collect at 1.925.681.7600

You may also write us at:

Bank of America
Electronic Banking Services
TX2-980-01-08
P.O. Box 655961
Dallas, TX 75265-9964

Contact us immediately if you think:

  • Your statement or transaction record is wrong
  • You need more information about a transaction listed on your statement
  • An unauthorized person has discovered your Online Banking passcode
  • Someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission
  • Bill payment transactions have been made without your authorization

We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we have sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared (or 90 days if the problem or error relates to a bill payment from an account maintained at another financial institution).
If you tell us verbally, we may require you to send us your complaint or question in writing or via email within ten (10) bank business days (Online Banking customers may use secure online mail). When you contact us, please provide the following information:

  • Your name and account number
  • The date and dollar amount of the transaction in question
  • The name of the Payee if the transaction in question is a payment
  • The transaction number assigned by Online Banking, if available
  • A description of the transaction about which you are unsure

Please explain as clearly as you can why you believe there is an error or why you need more information.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. In this case, we will provisionally credit your account within 10 bank business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing, and we do not receive your letter in 10 bank business days, we reserve the right not to provisionally credit your account.

If we conclude there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) bank business days after we complete our investigation. You may request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

Back to top

B. Limitation of Liability for Online Banking Transactions

Tell us at once if you believe your Online Banking passcode has been compromised or if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission. The best way to minimize your loss is to call us immediately. The unauthorized use of your Online Banking services could cause you to lose all of your money in your accounts, plus any amount available under your overdraft protection plan.

You will have no liability for unauthorized transactions if you notify us within 60 days after the statement showing the transaction has been mailed to you (or 90 days if the transaction was from an account maintained at another financial institution). If you do not, you may not get back any of the money you lost from any unauthorized transaction that occurs after the close of the 60-day period (or 90 day period if the transaction was from an account maintained at another financial institution), if we can show that we could have stopped the transaction if you had notified us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we may extend the time periods.

When you give someone your Online Banking ID and passcode, you are authorizing that person to use your service, and you are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your service. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized.
Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.
For your protection, sign off after every Online Banking session and close your browser to ensure confidentiality.
Note: These liability rules are established by Regulation E. Our liability policy regarding unauthorized debit card or ATM Card transactions, and unauthorized Online Banking transactions on consumer deposit accounts may give you more protection, provided you report the transactions promptly. Please see the agreement you received with your ATM or debit card and the Online Banking agreement. Also, the state law applicable to your account may give you more time to report an unauthorized transaction or may give you more protection. For example, in Massachusetts, the two day and 60 day time limits for reporting unauthorized transactions do not apply and the $500 limit does not apply.

Back to top

C. Our Liability for Failure to Complete Transactions

If we do not complete a transaction to or from your account on time, or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you, we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. For instance, we will not be liable:

  • If, through no fault of ours, you don’t have enough available funds in your account (or available funds under your overdraft protection plan), or credit to cover the transaction or transfer
  • If Online Banking services weren’t working properly, and you knew about the malfunction when you started the transaction or transfer
  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevented the transaction or transfer, despite reasonable precautions we’ve taken
  • If there are postal delays or processing delays by the Payee
  • There may be other exceptions not specifically mentioned

B. Acknowledgment of Commercially Reasonable Security Procedures

By using Online Banking, you acknowledge and agree that this Agreement sets forth security procedures for electronic banking transactions that are commercially reasonable. You agree to be bound by instructions, whether authorized or unauthorized, which we implement in compliance with these procedures, unless you have given us prior notice of possible unauthorized use as described above (and we had a reasonable opportunity to act on such notice).

Back to top

C. Limitation of Bank’s Liability (does not apply to Transfers Outside Bank of America or Direct Payments Service)

If we fail or delay in making a payment or transfer pursuant to your instructions, or if we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law, our liability shall be limited to interest on the amount that we failed to timely pay or transfer, calculated from the date on which the payment or transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you canceled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or the intended recipient of the payment or transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any obligation to the other. If we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized payment or transfer after we have had a reasonable time to act on a notice from you of possible unauthorized use as described above, unless otherwise required by law, our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the payment or transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed 60 days’ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Agreement or applicable law, such interest shall be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank in the district where Bank of America is headquartered for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a 360-day year. Unless otherwise required by law, in no event will Bank of America be liable to you for special, indirect or consequential damages including, without limitation, lost profits or attorney’s fees, even if we are advised in advance of the possibility of such damages.

For the provisions governing our liability for Transfers Outside Bank of America, please see Section 8.G below. For the provisions governing our liability for Direct Payments Service, please see Section 4.G of the Online Business Suite Addendum.
Please note that if you give or make reasonably available, your PIN or other access device or code to anyone, you may be liable for any use made of such until you advise us that such person is not authorized to use them.

7. Additional Services Intended for Businesses

The additional services described in this Section 7 are available only if you also enroll in the Online Business Suite. Some customers have been provided continued access to these services without enrolling in the Online Business Suite. We have notified you separately if you qualified for this limited exception.

A. Creating and Managing Users

You may add additional users to your Online ID and provide each with a separate passcode. For each user, you may designate the activity level – Inquiry or Financial – for each linked account, with the exception of investment accounts, which can only be linked to your original Online ID.
You may also designate another user as an Administrator, which means that this user will also be able to designate additional users. You agree that, by granting Financial access, you will be allowing a user to transfer funds, perform account maintenance and view account transactions for the linked account. Inquiry access allows a user to view account transactions. If you select to enable Bill Pay for a user, that user will automatically have Financial-level access to all the accounts that you have set up for Bill Pay, and they will be able to pay bills using the Bill Pay feature. If you no longer are a person authorized on the signature card for each linked account to designate signers for each such account, the business has the obligation to inform Business Online Banking of the new individual or individuals with such authority. Such notice must be given separately from any other notices given to other Bank of America departments or banking centers, by calling us at 1.800.933.6262. You may also write us at:
Bank of America
Electronic Banking Services
TX2-980-01-08
P.O. Box 655961
Dallas, TX 75265-9964

Bank of America will have no liability to you for unauthorized payments and transfers made using the passcodes you assign that occur before you have notified us of possible unauthorized use and we have had a reasonable opportunity to act on that notice.

Back to top

B. Linking Accounts of Additional Businesses

If you also are authorized to enter into an Agreement for the Business Online Banking service for another business, and if you want to link the accounts of the other business to the accounts covered by this Agreement, you will need to agree separately to this Agreement for each other business. Upon doing so, you may link the accounts of the businesses so that you may elect, at your risk and that of the businesses, but not of the Bank, to use a common Online ID and passcode for Business Online Banking for all linked accounts. You should do this only if you are authorized to link the accounts of the different business and to use all the functions of Business Online Banking for each business. You further agree to inform Bank of America if your authority over any linked account decreases. Bank of America is not liable if your authority over any account decreases until it is informed of the change in authority using the “Notice” requirements of this Agreement.

A. Transfers Outside Bank of America for Online Banking Customers

  • You must be enrolled in Online Banking to use Transfers Outside Bank of America Service.
  • Within Online Banking, you have the option of participating in the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service which allows you to transfer funds between your linked personal deposit accounts at Bank of America and certain deposit or investment accounts owned by you or someone else at other financial institutions. An Inbound transfer moves funds into an account you own at Bank of America from an account you own outside Bank of America. An Outbound transfer moves funds from an account you own at Bank of America to an account outside Bank of America that is owned by you or someone else.
  • Small business customers may transfer funds from their business checking account to an individual’s or vendor’s account at another financial institution. Before scheduling a transfer to an individual, you agree that you will have received a signed authorization from the payee, and that the authorization will not have been revoked. You agree to provide a copy of the authorization to us upon our request. Before scheduling any vendor payment, you agree that you will have received authorization from the vendor to make the payment by electronic means.
  • You will need to provide certain identifying information about each non-Bank of America account in order to register that account for this service. For Inbound transfers, you agree that you will only attempt to register non-Bank of America personal accounts that you own or for which you have the authority to transfer funds. Delivery speeds for domestic (U.S.) transfers are 3-Business-Day, Next-Business-Day or Same-Business-Day transfers. Same-Business-Day transfers are not available for Inbound transfers. International transfers are available for Outbound transfers only. Next-Business-Day and Three-Business-Day transfers are not available for international transfers. Please see below for a more detailed description of these transfers.
  • Types of domestic (U.S.) Outbound transfers:
    • Three-Business-Day transfers: Funds will be debited from your Bank of America account on the business day you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer, and typically will be credited to the receiving account on the third business day after the transfer is initiated.
    • Next-Business-Day transfers: Funds will be debited from your Bank of America account on the business day you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer, and typically will be credited to the receiving account on the next business day after the transfer is initiated.
    • Same-Business-Day transfers: Funds will be debited from your Bank of America account on the business day you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer and typically will be credited to the receiving account on the same business day.
    • Types of domestic (U.S.) Inbound transfers:
      • Three-Business-Day transfers: Funds typically will be debited from your account outside Bank of America on the business day or next business day after you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer, and will be credited to your Bank of America personal account on the third business day after the transfer is initiated.
      • Next-Business-Day transfers: Funds typically will be debited from your account outside Bank of America on the business day or next business day after you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer, and will be credited to your Bank of America personal account on the next business day after the transfer is initiated.
      • Types of international Outbound transfers:
        • Same-Business-Day transfers: Funds will be debited from your Bank of America account on the business day you direct us to initiate processing of the transfer, Bank of America will send the payment out on that business day, the beneficiary’s bank typically receives the funds 1 to 2 business days later and the funds typically will be credited to the beneficiary within 2 days.
        • Bank of America is not responsible for any failure of another financial institution to act in a timely manner as described above. As a result, Bank of America cannot guarantee the timely delivery or return of funds as a result of the failure of another financial institution to act in a timely manner. Please note that beneficiary banks located in some countries may take several days or even weeks to credit the receiving account. There may be some risk in making a transfer to a slow-to-pay country. Please see a complete listing of slow-to-pay countries. Currency conversion charges also may apply to international transfers. Bank of America will trace your transfer if the recipient has not received it in 3 weeks. A $25 fee will be charged for each transfer trace.
        • You agree that you will have sufficient available funds in the designated deposit account to cover all Outbound Transfers on the date scheduled. If the deposit account does not have sufficient available funds on the scheduled date, we may elect not to initiate one or more of the transfers. If we do elect to initiate the transfer, it may cause an overdraft in your account in which case you shall be liable for the overdraft and any overdraft fees and interest thereon, as set forth in your Deposit Agreement. If we do elect to initiate the transfer, you agree to pay all related fees as disclosed in your Deposit Agreement.
        • You agree that Bank of America may use any means or routes which we in our sole discretion consider suitable to execute your transfer. Bank of America hereby gives notice that Same-Business-Day transfers may be executed through Fedwire, a funds transfer system operated by the Federal Reserve Banks, through CHIPS (Clearing House Interbank Payments System), a funds transfer system operated by The Clearing House or through SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication). With respect to payment orders relating to the transfer which are executed through Fedwire, Federal Reserve Regulation J and all applicable Federal Reserve operating circulars shall govern the payment orders. With respect to payment orders relating to the transfer which are executed through CHIPS, the CHIPS Operating Rules shall govern the payment orders. With respect to payment orders relating to the transfer which are executed through SWIFT, the SWIFT operating rules shall govern the payment orders. Three-Business-Day transfers and Next-Business-Day transfers may be made through the Automated Clearing House processor selected by us or directly to another bank, and you agree will be subject to the National Automated Clearing House Association rules or our agreement with the other bank as applicable.

B. Initiating and Scheduling transfers

  • Cut-off Time: The cut-off time for 3-Business-Day transfers and Next-Business Day transfers is 8:00 p.m. ET. The cut-off time for Same-Business-Day transfers is 5:00 p.m. ET. Any transfer initiated after the applicable cut-off time will be considered as being initiated on the next business day.
  • Transfers can be scheduled on either a 1-time or a recurring basis. Processing of 1-time transfers may be initiated immediately or scheduled for initiation on a future date. Recurring transfers may be scheduled for up to 1 year in advance for domestic (U.S.) transfers only. The recurring transfer feature may be used when a set amount is transferred at regular intervals. For example, you may schedule a $100 transfer from an account you own at another financial institution to your Bank of America checking account every 2 weeks.
  • Immediate, 1-time future-dated and recurring transfers will be available for both Inbound and Outbound transfers. In addition to choosing the delivery speed, as described above, you will be asked to pick the date that you want us to initiate the processing of the transfer. For example, if you direct us to initiate processing an Outbound transfer immediately and choose Next Business Day delivery, funds will be debited from your Bank of America account on the business day you schedule the transfer and typically will be credited to the receiving account on the next business day after the transfer is initiated.
  • 1-time future-dated or recurring transfers scheduled for a weekend or a non business day will be processed on the prior business day.

Back to top

C. Cancelling Transfers

  • Subject to the limitations in Section 8.G and Section 8.H below, you can cancel 1-time future-dated and recurring transfers prior to midnight ET on the date processing for the transfer is scheduled to be initiated by accessing the Review Transfers page in the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service. This is the preferred method for cancelling transfers. After you cancel a future-dated transfer, the status changes to Canceled.
  • If you direct us to begin processing a transfer immediately or a transfer’s status is In Process or Processed, you no longer have the right to cancel it. However, the Bank at its option, may attempt to cancel the transaction, subject to the limitations in Section 8.G and H below.

D. Transfer Fees for Transfers Outside of Bank of America Services

  • Inbound Transfers: There is no fee for transferring funds into your Bank of America personal accounts, regardless of the delivery speed you choose.
  • Outbound Transfers:
    • If you transfer funds to an account owned by you or someone else at another financial institution, the following transfer fees will apply:
      – 3-Business-Day transfers – $3
      – Next-Business-Day transfers – $10
    • Same-Business Day transfers – varies by region (The actual fee disclosure is on the Make Transfer page.)
    • Miscellaneous Fees: You will be charged $25 for each transfer trace that you ask us to execute for you. International payments may be subject to additional fees charged by intermediary, receiving and beneficiary banks.
    • You may move money without a transfer fee by using Bill Pay (described in Section 3.B above). Bill Pay allows you to pay most major companies, usually within 1 to 4 business days. You may also use Bill Pay to transfer money to individuals and smaller merchants when arrival by a specified date is not required. The Transfers Outside Bank of America Service is an alternative that allows you to transfer funds to individuals or vendors when delivery of funds by a specific date is critical. Although you may also make transfers to other Bank of America customers through the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service, you may be able to make such transfers through our Inside the Bank Transfers Service without charge.

In the event we determine that there are risks associated with a Transfer Outside Bank of America or if we determine you are subject to a “Disqualifying Event,” as defined below, we may delay or cancel the transfer and notify you, or direct you to contact us to provide additional details on the transfer before it is initiated or funds are released.
  • Any transfer initiated on a day that is not a business day begins processing on the following business day and counts toward the applicable dollar limit for the next business day.

You must enroll in SafePass to transfer funds over certain dollar amounts, depending on your relationship with Bank of America. After enrolling in SafePass, you will be required to enter your SafePass code each time you’re initiating a transfer over the specified dollar amount and when adding a new account.

F. Processing Transfers and Disqualifying Events

  • A transfer remains “In Process” until fully processed and it will appear as “In Process” on your Transfer Funds, Outside the Bank, Review Transfers tab within Online Banking. Transfers remain “In Process” until the close of business on the day the funds are scheduled to be credited to the receiving account.
  • For Inbound transfers, 3-Business-Day delivery speed is available to all consumer customers participating in the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service, but you agree we may cancel a transfer, without prior notice, upon the occurrence of a “Disqualifying Event,” as defined below. You must be approved to make a Next-Business-Day Inbound transfer. Next-Business-Day Inbound transfers are permitted only at our discretion, but you must have completed at least one 3-Business-Day Inbound transfer involving the same non-Bank of America account no less than 60 days prior to the attempted Next-Business-Day Inbound transfer. You may determine whether you have been approved for Next-Business-Day Inbound transfers by going to theTransfer Funds tab and selecting Make Transfer, then verify if the Next Business Day option is available once an account you own at another financial institution is selected. Once approved, you will remain eligible for Next-Business-Day Inbound transfers, as applicable, unless we provide you with notice, as required by law.
  • We may change your dollar limits at any time. Any decrease will be subject to notice, as required by law, but you agree that we may reduce your limits below the amounts stated above without prior notice upon occurrence of a Disqualifying Event.
  • Each of the following is a “Disqualifying Event”:
    • Any of your deposit accounts with Bank of America are not current or are not in good standing.
    • You have had an overdraft, an over-limit item, or an item returned for insufficient funds with respect to any Bank of America deposit account during the current or 3 prior calendar months.
    • You have had any prior transfer canceled, revoked, or uncompleted due to insufficient funds, revoked authorization, stopped payments, frozen accounts, or any similar reason.

G. Liability (for Same-Business Day Transfers and All Transfers Outside Bank of America From a Business Account)

The following applies to Same-Business Day transfers, International Outbound Transfers, and all Transfers Outside of Bank of America from a business account (other than sole proprietors). The liability for Three-Business Day domestic transfers and Next-Business Day domestic transfers involving a transfer to or from a Bank of America consumer or sole proprietor account is prescribed in Section 5 above.

  • By enrolling in online banking and accessing the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service using your online I.D., Passcode and Sitekey, you acknowledge and agree that this system includes security procedures for transfers initiated through this Service that are commercially reasonable. You agree to be bound by instructions, whether authorized or unauthorized, which we implement in compliance with these procedures, unless you have given us prior notice of possible unauthorized use of your passcode and we had a reasonable opportunity to act on such notice.
  • If we fail or delay in making a transfer pursuant to your instructions, or if we make a transfer in an erroneous amount that is less than the amount per your instructions, unless otherwise required by law or as otherwise provided in this Agreement, our liability shall be limited to interest on the amount that we failed to timely pay or transfer, calculated from the date on which the payment or transfer was to be made until the date it was actually made or you canceled the instructions. We may pay such interest either to you or the intended recipient of the transfer, but in no event will we be liable to both parties, and our payment to either party will fully discharge any obligation to the other. If we make a payment or transfer in an erroneous amount that exceeds the amount per your instructions, or if we permit an unauthorized payment or transfer after we have had a reasonable time to act on a notice from you of possible unauthorized use of your passcode as described in this Section above, unless otherwise required by law or as otherwise provided in this Agreement, our liability will be limited to a refund of the amount erroneously paid or transferred, plus interest thereon from the date of the transfer to the date of the refund, but in no event to exceed 60 days’ interest. If we become liable to you for interest compensation under this Agreement or applicable law, such interest shall be calculated based on the average federal funds rate at the Federal Reserve Bank in the district where Bank of America is headquartered for each day interest is due, computed on the basis of a 360-day year. Unless otherwise required by law, in no event will Bank of America be liable to you for special, indirect or consequential damages including, without limitation, loss or damage from subsequent wrongful dishonor resulting from our acts or omissions or lost profits, even if we are advised in advance of the possibility of such damages. We shall not be liable for your attorney’s fees, except as required by law.
  • You expressly agree that Bank of America shall be liable to you only for our negligent performance or non-performance of the services provided pursuant to the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service, and that our responsibility shall be limited to the exercise of reasonable and ordinary care. Unless otherwise required by law, Bank of America shall not be liable for any error or delay on the part of any third party or for any other act or omission of any third party, including without limitation third parties used by Bank of America in executing any payment order relating to a transfer or performing a related act, and no such third party shall be deemed to be our agent. Further, we shall not be liable to you or any third party for failure to execute any transfer or perform a related act if such a failure is due to causes or conditions beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation, strikes, riots, insurrection, war, military, or national emergencies, acts of God, natural disasters, fire, outages of computers or associated equipment, or failure of transportation or communication methods or power supplies. Except as may be limited by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold Bank of America and officers, directors, employees and representatives harmless (including payment of reasonable attorney’s fees) against any and all liability to third parties arising out of, or in connection with, this Agreement, the Transfers Outside Bank of America Service or any actions taken by Bank of America pursuant to your instructions.
  • For each transfer, we will e-mail a confirmation to you at the e-mail address indicated in our records. The confirmation will note the date and the amount of the transfer and the bank or institution to or from which the transfer was made. You agree to examine the confirmation promptly upon receipt and to notify us immediately of any discrepancy between the confirmation and your records. Bank of America shall not be liable for interest compensation, as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, unless Bank of America is notified of the discrepancy within 30 days from the date of your receipt of the confirmation or your bank statement including the transfer, whichever is earlier.
  • You acknowledge and agree that if a payment order relating to a transfer describes a beneficiary inconsistently by name and account number, payment might be made by the beneficiary’s bank on the basis of the account number, even if it identifies a person different from the named beneficiary, and that your obligation to pay the transfer issued by you to us shall not be excused by such payment.
  • Bank of America may at its option accept your cancellations or amendments to a transfer. You acknowledge that if Bank of America attempts to cancel or amend a transfer, then the reversal request or amendment must be agreed to by each financial institution which has accepted a payment order related to the transfer at issue before it will be acted upon and you further agree that Bank of America shall have no liability if a cancellation or amendment is not effected. You agree that you shall indemnify and hold Bank of America and officers, directors, employees, and representatives harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, and expenses, including attorney’s fees and costs, resulting directly or indirectly from compliance with your cancellation or amendment request.

H. Special Rules for International Transfers

  • Once an international transfer has been sent, it cannot be cancelled or amended. You may request an international transfer be recalled, and we will communicate your request to the beneficiary’s bank. If the beneficiary’s bank agrees to return the funds to us, then upon confirmation of receipt of funds in our account, we will credit your account at the current Bank of America retail buy rate for that currency that day (see below). Please note that the exchange rate will be different from the original rate applicable to the Outbound transfer, which may result in a loss to you. Furthermore, the beneficiary’s bank may assess charges for their services, which will be deducted from the amount returned to you. We will have no liability to you if the beneficiary’s bank or foreign beneficiary refuses your request to recall the international wire transfer.
  • If an international transfer is returned by the receiving bank or beneficiary’s bank for no fault of ours, we will credit your account at the current Bank of America retail buy rate for the currency that day (see below). Please note that the exchange rate will be different from the original rate applicable to the Outbound transfer, which may result in a loss to you. Furthermore, a returning bank and/or beneficiary’s bank may assess charges for their services, which will be deducted from the amount returned to you.
  • The exchange rate that Bank of America will offer you or assign to your transaction is determined by Bank of America based upon market conditions. We consider many factors in setting our exchange rates including without limitation exchange rates charged by other parties, desired rates of return, market risk and credit risk. You acknowledge that exchange rates for retail and commercial transactions, and for transactions effected after regular business hours and on weekends, are different from the exchange rates for large inter-bank transactions effected during the business day as reported in the The Wall Street Journal or elsewhere. Exchange rates offered by other dealers, or shown at other sources (including online sources) may be different from Bank of America’s rates. We do not accept any liability if our rates are different from rates offered or reported by third parties, or offered by us at a different time, at a different location, for a different transaction amount, or involving a different payment media (banknotes, check, wire transfer etc.)

9. BankAmeriDealsTM (Not yet available for all Bank of America Downloadable Mobile Banking Applications (“Mobile Banking App/s”)).

BankAmeriDeals (“deals” or “cash back deals or “offers”) are provided pursuant to these terms and conditions and any operating rules or policies that may be published by Bank of America (including its Privacy Notice), as may be amended from time to time. BankAmeriDeals provide you with the opportunity to earn cash back with deals based on your use of your eligible Bank of America accounts. If you have an eligible debit or credit card and meet the BankAmeriDeals eligibility requirements, the deals recommended for you will appear in your Account Detail transaction list in Online Banking and on the Cash Back Deals tab in Online Banking or on the Deals tab in the Bank of America Mobile Banking App. We try to match deals to the places you’ve shopped or to similar places that might interest you. We do not share individually identifiable information with merchants as part of BankAmeriDeals, and we offer you the opportunity to hide or opt out of receiving these cash back deals. As always, we will only use personally identifiable information in accordance with our Online Privacy Notice and Privacy Notice.

A. Redeeming BankAmeriDeals

In order to redeem a cash back deal you must first click on the deal to load it to your eligible Bank of America credit and debit cards and then complete the transaction using one of those cards. The amount of cash back and any specific terms and conditions related to a particular deal will be included in the deals details . However, cash back will not be earned for any portion of your purchase that you pay for with store credit, gift certificates or other payment types.

Cash back you earn will be posted into the account designated as your cash back account (“Designated Account”) on the Preferences tab in the Cash Back Deals section of Online Banking or under BankAmeriDealsin Settings in the Mobile Banking App. You may change the Designated Account to another eligible account at any time by clicking the Change account link in Online Banking or tapping the Cash Back Account button in the Mobile Banking App. (An account will be auto-populated as the default account to receive your BankAmeriDeals cash back unless you access the Preferences or Settings tab and select another account.)

Cash back from the BankAmeriDeals you redeem in a given month will appear as one transaction on the Account Details page for your Designated Account and will appear in your Earnings Summary in the Mobile Banking App. Your BankAmeriDeals cash back will typically be posted to your account the month after you redeem the deal. For example, any deals you redeem in the month of December will be posted to your account toward the end of January. Since we don’t share your personal information with merchants as part of BankAmeriDeals, we cannot post the cash back reward to your account immediately at the time of purchase and there may be a delay for your cash back reward to show to be paid on the Cash Back Deals Earned tab in Online Banking or in the Earnings Summary in the Mobile Banking App. If you would like to see the BankAmeriDeals you have redeemed or the total value of the deals you have redeemed to date, please visit the Earned tab in Online Banking or the Earnings Summary in the Mobile Banking App.

Cash back posted to a credit card account will not be posted as a payment. It will be posted as a statement credit and is not a substitute for a payment. You must continue to make your minimum monthly payment shown on your billing statement.

Your Designated Account must be open in order to receive BankAmeriDeals cash payments. If your Designated Account is closed but you have other open eligible cards/accounts, we reserve the right to select an alternative Designated Account for you. You can go to the Preferences tab in Online Banking or toBankAmeriDeals in Settings in the Mobile Banking App to update or change your Designated Account. If all of your eligible cards/accounts are closed by you or us, you forfeit any BankAmeriDeals cash payments that you have not yet been awarded.

Push strategy

Another meaning of the push strategy in marketing can be found in the communication between seller and buyer. Depending on the medium used, the communication can be either interactive or non-interactive. For example, if the seller makes his promotion by television or radio, it’s not possible for the buyer to interact with. On the other hand, if the communication is made by phone or internet, the buyer has possibilities to interact with the seller. In the first case information is just “pushed” toward the buyer, while in the second case it is possible for the buyer to demand the needed information according to their requirements.

  • Applied to that portion of the supply chain where demand uncertainty is relatively small
  • Production and distribution decisions are based on long term forecasts
  • Based on past orders received from retailer’s warehouse (may lead to Bullwhip effect)
  • Inability to meet changing demand patterns
  • Large and variable production batches
  • Unacceptable service levels
  • Excessive inventories due to the need for large safety stocks
  • Less expenditure on advertising than pull strategy

[edit]Pull strategy

In a marketing “pull” system, the consumer requests the product and “pulls” it through the delivery channel. An example of this is the car manufacturing company Ford Australia. Ford Australia only produces cars when they have been ordered by the customers.

  • Applied to that portion of the supply chain where demand uncertainty is high
  • Production and distribution are demand driven
  • No inventory, response to specific orders
  • Point of sale (POS) data comes in handy when shared with supply chain partners
  • Decrease in lead time
