National Bank email alerts
in a nutshell

To help you keep an eye on your finances and avoid unnecessary fees, you will automatically receive email alerts from National Bank when:

  • Your account balances are below a certain amount
  • The available credit on your credit card or line of credit falls below a certain amount

You can disable these email alerts or change the minimum amount for each at any time. We explain how to do this further down on this page.
