Citizens ending fees for small overdrafts

RBS Citizens Bank will no longer offer the $40 cup of coffee.

The bank said Wednesday it will eliminate overdraft charges for withdrawals of less than $5, reducing the chances of hefty fees for people who make small purchases with debit cards. Under Citizens’ previous policies, customers who bought a $3 cup of coffee with debit cards and inadvertently overdrew accounts could get hit with a $37 charge.
