What should I do with my check after I deposit it?

Hang on to your check until you receive an email from us confirming that your check has been successfully deposited.  After that, go ahead and void the check by writing "VOID" across it.

When will my check deposit be available?

Checks deposited using CheckMate or a deposit taking ATM have slightly different hold times than regular transfers. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Checks deposited into 360 Checking or MONEY for less than $500 – first $200 is available the next business day, the remaining funds are available after 2 business days
  • Checks deposited into 360 Checking or MONEY for greater than $500 – first $200 is available the next business day, the remaining funds are available after 5 business days
  • Any deposit into 360 Savings or Kids Savings Account - funds are available after 5 business days
  • A check deposit drawn on 360 Checking or a Capital One Bank account - funds are available the next business day

For some deposits, like Federal checks, the total amount of the funds will be made available the next business day.

Here are a few examples:

  1. I deposit a personal check of $600 into my 360 Checking on Monday, May 7, 2012 (after 5 PM ET). The first $200 is available on Wednesday, May 9, 2012. The remaining $400 is available on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.    
  2. I deposit a personal check of $200 into my 360 Checking on Monday, May 7, 2012 (before 5 PM ET). The entire check is available on Tuesday, May 8, 2012.
  3. I deposit 2 personal checks, each for $200 into my 360 Checking on Monday, May 7, 2012 (before 5 PM ET). That means the total amount I deposited on Monday is $400. The first $200 of that amount is available on Tuesday, May 8, 2012. The remaining $200 is available on Wednesday, May 9, 2012.    
  4. I deposit a personal check of $400 into my 360 Savings on Monday, May 7, 2012 (before 5 PM ET). The entire check will be available on Monday, May 14, 2012.

Note: For checks deposited into 360 Checking or MONEY via a check deposit taking ATM, the cut-off time to make check deposits is 9 PM ET (vs. the usual cut-off time of 5 PM ET).

Is there a cut off time in order to have funds available the next business day?

Checks deposited after 5 PM ET Monday through Friday, and anytime on Saturdays, Sundays or federal holidays will be processed the next business day and made available based on the info above.

I deposited my check into the wrong account, what should I do?

Hang tight. Once your deposit becomes available, you can transfer the money into the account you want, and because it’s an internal transfer, the funds will be available immediately.

There are a few reasons why your check would be rejected. Here are a few examples:
