Fight Zions Bank Overdraft Fees Easily With DoNotPay

Banks serve an important role in our society by keeping people's money safe and secure while allowing customers to accrue small amounts of interest. Despite this helpful purpose, banks can charge several types of fees, including overdraft fees, that can add up to hundreds of dollars per year.

But you don't have to put up with these unfair charges when you have DoNotPay on your side.

With DoNotPay, you can fight any bank overdraft fees, monthly service fees, and more with just a few minutes of your time and key pieces of information. All you need to do is visit the DoNotPay app on your smartphone or tablet, or the DoNotPay website on your computer.

Common Types of Zions Bank Fees

Like most banks in the United States, can charge customers several different kinds of fees. Some of the most common fees the company charges include:

Refers to fees regarding not having enough funds when a transaction is taken out of your account. Zions Bank charges $35 for an overdraft.
  • Continuing Overdraft
This fee is charged to accounts with balances that remain overdrawn for at least seven days. You can be charged $30 for this fee.
  • Stop Payment Fees
If you need to stop a payment due to writing the wrong balance or recipient for a check, you can be charged $25.
  • Dormant Account Fee
Begins charging $5 per month after the first year of inactivity for a checking account.

These are just a few of the dozens of possible fees Zions Bank can charge without warning, which is why it's important to thoroughly read any agreements the company has you sign before opening an account or taking out a loan.

Fees of this nature may seem minor when they happen once in a while, but they can greatly add up if you are charged multiple overdraft fees in a year.

Why Do Banks Charge Overdraft Fees?

When consumers don't have enough funds in their bank account to cover a purchase or transaction, a customer's card can be declined or a check can bounce, rendering them unable to complete the transaction. Many banks now cover the cost of the transaction on a consumer's behalf, but charge approximately $34 on average to do so.

Charging overdraft fees is one of the largest money-makers for banks all over the country. In fact, according to CNBC, banks made over $15 billion from overdraft and non-sufficient funds fees just in 2019. That huge sum of money has increased steadily over time, but you can fight back with DoNotPay.

Fighting Zions Bank Overdraft Fees on Your Own

  3. Fill out the details completely, including the sections asking for your bank routing and account numbers, and a description of the events that took place.
  4. Mail the form to Zions Bank
  5. Wait to hear back

If Zions Bank agrees with your complaint, it will refund the fees to your account.

If you don't hear back for several weeks, Zions Bank may disagree with your complaint and choose not to refund you. In this case, you can use DoNotPay to assist you with your next steps.
