Long ACH transfer times

I initiated a $25K transfer at Ivy Bank to my CFG account and the funds were debited on 3/24 at Ivy. They weren’t credited at CFG until 3/29. So I lost maybe $17 interest. Is this because it was done over a weekend? Should you not initiate transfers later in the week just to avoid this issue?

Yes, 3-day transfers are rather common. And do not count weekend days.
