The more you stay on top of your money, the more money you’ll have to stay on top of. Setting up mobile phone text or email alerts makes it easy to know where your account stands—so you can take action to access new deposits or guard against low balance, unusual activity and fraud.

Here are seven Mobile Banking alerts to consider signing up for.
- Large Deposit Alert

1. Large Deposit Alert
This alert notifies you when funds of an amount you specify are credited to your account (checking, savings, loan or credit card) —either as a deposit by you or someone else on the account—or as an auto-deposit, such as a paycheck from your employer. In addition to keeping you in the know, this alert is a helpful tracking tool to assist in record keeping.
2. Low Balance Alert
When your checking or savings account balance drops below a predetermined dollar amount, this alert gives you a heads-up via email or text. You get to decide your ‘low balance' threshold. This alert is a great money-management tool that can save you from overspending.
3. Exceeded Budget Alert
This alert is tied into Money Manager, BECU's online money management tool. With Money Manager, you can categorize your spending and establish budget goals and spending limits. Once set up, the Exceeded Budget alert will notify you when you've gone over the amount of money identified for your budget.
4. Fee Charged Alert
This alert will let you know if you're ever charged a fee.
5. Large Expense Charged Alert
This alert will notify you if a large expense is charged or transferred from your checking, savings or charged on credit card accounts enrolled in Money Manager.
6. Payment Reminder Alert
This alert will prompt you when a payment is due. You can set up separate alerts for different accounts—from credit cards to mortgage, lines of credit, car loans and more.
7. International Transactions Reminder Alert
This alert will notify you that a transaction in another country has been posted to your account.
