Discover offers optional overdraft protection by linking a second Discover account to your checking account to fund any overdrafts, other than those caused by an ATM withdrawal or POS debit transaction. These will simply be declined if there are insufficient funds. Without this protection, or if you do not have sufficient funds in your secondary account, the bank will refuse or simply return transactions that overdraw your account.

Discover does not charge out-of-network ATM fees, but you may be subject to third-party fees, which will not be refunded.
