  • Monthly Statements

You have the choice of either receiving your statement through the U.S. mail, electronically, or both (unless you opened one of the accounts online that requires you receive your statements electronically). Paper statements have a fee of $3.00 per month. If you choose to receive your statement electronically, you will be notified by email when it is available. You may choose to simply view it, print it or to download it into your personal money management software. Available formats for Transaction Exporting are Comma Separated File [.CSV], Microsoft Money [.OFX], Intuit Quicken [.QFX], Intuit QuickBooks [.QBO], and Spreadsheet [.XLS].

    • What is Annual Percentage Yield (APY)?

      Interest Rate is the annual rate of interest paid on an account and does not reflect compounding. Annual Percentage Yield (APY) reflects the total amount of interest paid on an account, based on the interest rate and the frequency of compounding for a 365-day period and calculated according to the rules of the Truth In Savings Act. The APY is normally higher than the Interest Rate because it assumes that all compounded interest credited to an interest bearing account will remain on deposit in that account. The Bank is required to report APY on your monthly statements and to disclose the APY when advertising interest bearing accounts.

    • How is the interest rate reported on my monthly statement calculated?

      The interest rate reported on your monthly statement is the Annual Percentage Yield (APY). Ultimate Rewards Rewards Checking pays the highest APY on the first $10,000 in your account, then a lower (but very competitive) APY on balances over $10,000. Therefore, if you have more than $10,000 in your account, the APY reported will be calculated based on a “blended” rate. The APY on the first $10,000 balance is blended proportionally with the lower APY on the daily balance over $10,000.

    • On the Ultimate Rewards Checking Account, when does the monthly statement close?

      The monthly statement closes on the 20th of every month. If the 20th falls on a Saturday, the cycle will cut off on the 19th (the Friday before) and if the 20th falls on a Sunday, the cycle will cut off on the 21st (the following Monday).

    • What is the phone number for Intuit QuickBooks support?

      1-800-446-8848

  • About VISA Debit Cards

    • How long does it take to get my VISA Debit Card?

      It takes 5-10 business days after your new account is funded to get your All America Bank VISA® Debit Card. Your PIN (personal identification number) will arrive separately from your VISA Debit Card, but within the same time frame.

    • Is there a fee for using my VISA Debit Card?

      There is no fee for using your All America Bank VISA debit card at ATMs owned by All America Bank.  For withdrawals from other ATMs, we charge $0.75 per cash withdrawal. However, our Ultimate Rewards® Checking Account offers you a refund of the $0.75 charges as well as other ATM surcharges up to $25.00 per statement cycle if you meet the monthly requirements. All VISA debit card transactions are free at merchant locations.

      Fees will be charge for international transactions. Visa charges financial institutions International Service Assessments (ISA) on all international transactions regardless if there is a currency conversion. ISA fees will be reflected on your account statement as international fees. See our Deposit Account Agreement for more information.

    • Is there a limit on my VISA Debit Card?

      For your protection, there is a daily limit on your debit card of $600 for cash and $1,500 for purchases.

  • Corporate Account Takeover

    • What is a corporate account takeover and how can I avoid it?

      Corporate Account Takeover is the business equivalent of personal identity theft. Hackers, backed by professional criminal organizations, are targeting small- and medium-size businesses to obtain access to their web banking credentials or remote control of their computers. These hackers will then drain the deposit and credit lines of the compromised bank accounts, funneling the funds through mules that quickly redirect the monies overseas into hackers’ accounts.

      As a business owner, you need an understanding how to take proactive steps and avoid, or at least minimize, most threats.

      • Use a dedicated computer for financial transactional activity. DO NOT use this computer for general web browsing and email
      • Apply operating system and application updates (patches) regularly
      • Ensure that anti-virus/spyware software is installed, functional and is updated with the most current version
      • Have host-based firewall software installed on computers
      • Use latest versions of Internet browsers, such as Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome with “Pop-up” blockers and keep patches up to date
      • Turn off your computer when not in use
      • Do not batch approve transactions; be sure to review and approve each one individually
      • Review your banking transactions and your credit report regularly
      • Contact your Information Technology provider to determine the best way to safeguard the security of your computer and networks
