Fee #2: ATM fees

Photo by avlxyz — Slide 2 of 5

Most banks don’t charge their customers to use their own ATM’s, but fees to use another bank’s ATM network, so-called out-of-network charges, are rising. You might be able to minimize this by taking out more money at one time from your own bank.

Second, hunt for your bank’s ATMs. Even if your bank doesn’t operate a branch near your home or job, it may have ATM’s tucked into unexpected places, like drugstores and malls. Maybe make a map of those locations, or bookmark your bank’s ATM locator website page on your smartphone. That way you can use your own network and avoid ATM fees.
