Cash Advances

SouthernTrust Bank offers cash advance services for credit cards and reloadable debit cards. Many credit cards and pre-loaded cards offer cash advance options in addition to purchases. This allows cardholders to withdraw cash either at an ATM or over the counter at a participating financial institution. 

Things to keep in mind when considering a cash advance from a credit cards:

  • Rate. Many credit card may charge a higher rate of interest on cash advances and purchases classified as cash advances.
  • Fees. Many card carriers charge a cash advance fee that is independent of the interest rate. The fee is in addition to interest and is usually charged as a percentage of the amount advanced with a minimum if the advance is too low.
  • Limit. Most cards have a different limit for cash advances and purchases classified as cash advances. While a card may have a $5,000 credit limit, it may have a lower portion of the overall limit that is for cash advances.

It is best to contact your card provider to get your current fees, limits and rates before doing a cash advance.
