TD Launches Text and Email Alerts to Notify of Account Threshold Limits
TD Canada announced on Monday it has officially launched its TD Alerts program. Customers saw notifications back in February that the new program was set to debut in April.
According to TD in an email to customers, the new TD Alerts program will send a text or email alert when customers get within $100 of their personal credit card or line of credit account limit, or when they are within $100 of a $0 balance on personal deposit accounts.
TD customers will be able to manage alerts and the program debut sets alert threshold amounts at $100 by default. TD says for those with Overdraft Protection on deposit accounts, they will also send alerts when outstanding overdraft balances are within a threshold amount of Overdraft Limits. The bank says these alerts may help customers avoid certain fees.
TD Alerts are available for the following personal accounts:
- Deposit accounts (chequing, savings and U.S. dollar)
- Chequing accounts with Overdraft Protection service
- Credit cards (not including Authorized Users)
- Lines of credit
To use TD Alerts, you’ll need a Canadian mobile number and also an email associated with your TD account. TD Threshold Alerts can be customized in TD Alerts and Notifications within EasyWeb.
TD will use 5-digit short codes to send texts, depending on products you have with the bank:
The same goes for email alerts from TD, sent from the following addresses depending on products you have:
Customers can also opt out of TD Alerts by logging into EasyWeb, then visiting Profile & Settings and select TD Alerts and Notifications. It’s not possible to change TD Threshold Alerts in the company’s mobile app, at this time.
