When a payment is made from a debit card, the difference between the current
balance and the current charge will remain. If you had money in your pocket,
then the difference between a bill and the amount you give to the cashier will
be the change you receive. For example, if a CD costs $14 and you pay with a
$20 bill, then you will receive the difference between 20 and 14, or $6.
