Line of credit for overdraft protection for your checking account.

 

Example. If you have a checking account with $1,000 , and a NavCheck for $15,000 (max) you can technically write a check for $16,000 and it'll clear. You will owe 3% transaction fee, or $20 whatever is higher, and owe a interest rate til you pay it back. Imagine it as one of the cheapest cash advances ever known to man.

 

 below is Navy Federal's description incase I'm not making any sense.

 

How it Works

Overdraft Line of Credit is automatically activated when you exceed your checking account balance. To cover the transaction, funds equaling the overdrawn amount are transferred from your line of credit to your checking. 
It's a safety net that provides convenience and peace of mind.

The Benefits

Money saving – No per-item overdraft fees! Plus, you'll receive a low interest rate with monthly payments that are 2% of the principal loan balance or $20, whichever is higher. Current interest rate is as low as 13.9% APR.** (this is prime rate, there is a prime plus which is lower)

Convenient – Provides automatic protection, flexible repayment rates, and terms.

 

BEST PART IS IT REPORTS AS A CREDIT CARD.  Will never be closed by credit grantor for inactivity, no poking stupid charges to keep it active active, no annual fees, and HIGH credit limits that factors into your FICO.

yep that itself imo makes it the best bank in the world for credit rebuilders, especially cause they really do give you inflated credit limits more than the consumer probably deserves lol, but burn them once they'll usually NEVER let you back in.

 

I seen people with 640's score for $5,000 credit card and $5,000 NavChek.....
