Alerts are a great way to receive a notice whenever something happens to your account that you want to know about. This is especially useful for people who receive a payment on a regular basis to know exactly when their paycheck, social security or other monthly benefits come in. It’s also great if you want to know when your monthly bills are coming out. Alerts can also be set up to notify you when you spend money on a specific item or in a certain amount (i.e. “Starbucks” or “Over $10”).
