I made 3 purchases and went over by 50$ and was charged 3 overdraft fees. When I only should have been charged 1.

    It is not the total amount $50, It is three times you went overdraft.

    That is three times they had to cover your negative balance.

    3 purchases equals 3 overdraft fees.

    Get overdraft protection.

    Here is an example of how US Bank stole my money!
    Available beginning balance on reliacard 08/01 $300.00
    purchase made at store processed as "credit" -30.00
    verified AVAILABLE balance remaining as +270.00

    purchase made at store processed as "credit" 08/02 -20.00
    verified my available balance remaining as +$250.00

    atm withdrawl using pin # at us bank atm 08/05 -260.00
    available balance 08/05 -10.00
    available balance 08/07 -61.00!!!
    Reliacard fee per NSF is just $17.00 each (i know it's better than most)

    I was at an ATM that could only dispense 20's, doesnt matter why, I knew I would be responsible for one NSF fee for overdrawing my account the $10.00 and thought I would be at -27.00. But nooooo... I had 3 fee's instead of one!
    Their explanation for the three overdraft fee's? The $30.00 store purchase on 08/01 and the $20.00 store purchase on 08/02 were still "pending" when I withdrew the $260.00 on 08/05. The stores had not yet sent through the paperwork to US Bank so I got three fee's and not one because they hadn't "officially" cleared my account yet. So if the purchases werent "officially" cleared yet through my account than why do the purchase amounts immediatly come off my available balance?! Seems pretty "official" to me! Crooks!

    BC, the department of unemployment utilizes the bank to process the benefits; but it really isn't a US Bank account, now is it?

    PS: the unemployment department sends you the card and in its disclosures it explains that their are fees associated with certain transactions using the card. Another example of a person not reading the terms.

    To the original OP: your bank disclosures state how merchant authorizations post and in what order they post. If you don't overdraw your account, you won't have even one fee. But if you do, you also take the chance on posting order assessing additional fees.
