Definition: a line of credit that banks offer to their customers to cover their overdrafts. Overdraft protection kicks in when a customer writes a check for more than the amount in their account.
From the case above regarding Lucy and her mother,in my opinion, it was not a wise decision to do so because It covers transactions that exceed the balance in your checking account, giving you peace of mind and eliminating the inconvenience and potential embarrassment of a rejected check, check card or ATM transaction..Although it comes with a price but it is wise to have it.
