Three Easy Ways to Avoid ATM Fees

by Hostetler, Michael

Financial Center is committed to helping you have the best financial experience possible. This includes helping you avoid costly ATM fees. Follow these simple tips and you can conveniently access cash without paying ATM surcharges or fees.

Get Cash Back at Retail Stores

Request cash back on purchases made using your Financial Center VISA debit card at retail stores. Simply use the card as a "debit" and provide your PIN. Many merchants offer cash back in increments starting at $20. There is NO fee associated with this type of transaction.

Know Where the Nearest Surcharge Free ATMs Are

Locate surcharge free ATMs online. The owners of these ATMs (other credit unions or banks) do not assess a fee, and Financial Center waives the first three foreign ATM charges you make per month.

Visit Shared Branches

Financial Center participates with a number of other credit unions in a shared branching network - which means you can make deposits, withdrawals, and loan payments at nearly 4,700 credit union locations across the country (more than 30 are located in the Indianapolis area).
