We all enjoy the magic of the holidays…the merriment, the twinkle, and the weeks of anticipation leading up to the moment you’ve waited for all year long. Surprises around the holidays are anticipated, and even welcome, but they aren’t welcome when it comes to our finances. Let’s face it…the holiday season is often a very busy (and stressful) time of the year. From hectic work schedules and parties, to holiday shopping and meal preparation, the last month of the year is jam-packed with many to-do’s. It’s a time of the year when a few added reminders to help us stay on track are truly appreciated.
That’s why we offer customizable “Wireless Notifications” for our online banking customers. By utilizing our notification system, you can stay on top of your holiday spending, ensure you don’t accidentally make more withdrawals than your deposits allow, and even receive notification when a specified transaction posts to your account.
Talk about the “BEST” way to stay organized and make your holidays bright!
B — Balance Alerts. You set the limit or amount that is comfortable for you! You can choose to use balance alerts for notification if you have too low of a balance, or even if your balance exceeds the threshold that you’ve set up. In this case, you may need to adjust your account accordingly.
E — eStatement. Keeping track of your accounts is now even “easier" with eStatement. These alerts will let you know when your latest eStatement is available for viewing.
S — Secure Messages. Our alert system will notify you when you receive secure and confidential communications from First Bank. This includes important bill pay information.
T — Transaction Notices. We’ll notify you when a check clears or your payroll is deposited direct—the choice is all yours!
Signing up is easy!
For clients already set-up with online banking, log in to Firstbanks.com and select the “Alerts Tab”. It will then ask you for which type of alert you would like to create and the method you would like to receive them. That’s right. You can choose to receive your banking alerts via the email address you choose or through your registered cell phone number.
At First Bank, we wish to make your holidays the BEST they can be!
