Courtesy Coverage

Overdraft? No worries.

We’ve got your back. Qualifying Spruce members can get up to $20 of fee-free overdraft protection for card purchases.

Take a deep breath. We got you.

With Courtesy Coverage, if you make a purchase with your card that would put your account in the negative, we’ll automatically cover you, up to $20. And you’ll get a notification, so you know exactly where you stand.

It’s simple to get back in the green.

After Courtesy Coverage covers you, all you have to do is pay back that amount within 30 days. The next time you add funds to your account, those funds will automatically go towards repaying your negative balance, or you can transfer funds from one of your saving goals.
