Hi, I recently made a purchase for 1.98 on Dec 10 but on the pending transaction, the date says Dec 12. I'm new the banking thing and I'm not entirely sure how it works.

Welcome to the TD Bank community, Lakiear. We are happy to clear up some confusion regarding your pending transactions.
Whenever you make a transaction, it will first become a pending transaction before posting to your account. Pending Transactions are authorized or submitted items that have not yet posted to your account. Pending Transactions may affect your available balance and when items post, they are then reflected in your statement history.
After all pending transactions are deducted from that Account Balance, your "Available Balance" is the amount of money in your account you can use without incurring an overdraft charge. Some things to remember:
- Your Available Balance is reduced by any pending debit card transactions (purchases and ATM withdrawals), and includes any deposited funds that have been made available.
- Your Available Balance does not reflect checks that you have written that have not yet cleared, or payments made in Bill Pay by laser draft (paper check) that have not yet cleared. You will typically not see these items pending.
- Your Available Balance also does not include electronic payments in Bill Pay that have not yet been paid, or debit card transactions that have not yet been processed by the vendor for payment.
- If you exceed your available balance, you may incur an overdraft fee.
