Ruined Christmas

I have savings and checking with bank, went to transfer funds on Dec 24th from savings to checking. When went to buy groceries my debit was declined. Came home checked online, and found out my own funds, were not available till after Christmas. So I have had to cancel my Christmas plans. My Christmas is ruined. They certainly process debits immediately but transfers of funds not available over Christmas. I definitely would not recommend this Bank to anyone. There is no customer service and bank is antiquated. I am leaving Bank ASAP
