If you use your debit card to make a purchase, the company may place a hold on the funds until they submit the actual debit. This means that although the money is in your account, it will be withdrawn in the very near future. A hold placed on a check deposited to your account will also cause the available balance to be less than the actual balance. Please keep in mind that your savings account must always have a $5.00 balance. That $5.00 is held in the savings and is not reflected as being available.
