SIGN ME UP: Important Changes Regarding Courtesy Pay

Hey, let us help you out. Many BrightStar members enjoy the benefits of Courtesy Pay. With Courtesy Pay, items such as checks, ATM/debit card transactions and automatic bill payments may clear your account even if you don’t have enough funds when the items clear. This could be a great convenience for you by helping you avoid the embarrassment of insufficient funds when you’re making a purchase— and helping you when you need cash from an ATM in an emergency. Due to recent regulatory changes, we are required to remove Courtesy Pay service on your account for ATM and everyday debit card transactions unless you affirmatively consent, or opt into payment of overdrafts for ATM and one-time debit card transactions. If you would like to have and/or keep this service, please visit our website at to complete the required form. If you have been utilizing Courtesy Pay in the past, you will lose the convenience of this service if you do not specifically opt in.
