Reduce ATM Fees – Daily Financial Tip

ATM fees - how to reduce themAutomatic Teller Machine (ATM) fees are nothing more than a convenience fee, much like paying more money for food at your local convenience store.

    I have NEVER paid an ATM fee. There are several ATMs in town that are in cooperation with my bank (an out of town bank by the way) and I am not charged a fee. As well, most places I shop allow $100 cash back with a purchase, so I can save a trip by just getting cash then too if I feel I will be needing it.

    i refuse to pay an atm fee, so far i do not have to pay when getting money making a purchase, and if i use my own bank machines no fee. also helps me curb my “impulse” spending, by the time i think about going to get the cash from the atm, the “urge” is usually gone.

    There are several banks out there that offer free ATM use at their own ATMs. Mine (USAA) however pays me back for any charges that the ATM may have charged. So at the end of the month I will get a credit for any ATM charges (up to a certain amount – I think its 20$ / month). I know there are some other banks that are now doing this as well, but they require a substanitial minimum balance (so that they can cover the cost with the interest that they earn on your money).
