What fees did Andrew pay?

Question: 1—2—3

Although Andrew could write a check or use his debit card for $40 on June 8, he wouldn't have enough money in the account to cover the expense. In this case, the bank would allow the check or debit payment to be paid if Andrew has opted for overdraft protection. Overdraft protection is provided by financial institutions to generally approve and pay overdraft transactions when the account holder does not have enough funds to cover the transaction in return for a fee.  Yes, there is a fee for this, and that fee can be very high-- as much as $35.00 for each overdraft. If Andrew has not chosen overdraft protection, the bank would return the check to the person or business Andrew paid and Andrew would pay an overdraft fee.  For a debit card transaction, his card would be declined at the point of the purchase.

Andrew should think carefully about this. If he writes a check or uses his debit card and overdraws his account, the pair of jeans he buys on sale for $40 will now cost him $75.

Why is it important for people to keep records of deposits to and withdrawals and expenditures from an account?
