How Can Credit Union Shared ATM Networks Save You Money?
Sometimes it can seem like finding an ATM that won't charge an arm and a leg for accessing our own money is easier said than done. However, credit unions are offering new ways for members to access your accounts just as if you were doing business at your home branch.
Surcharge Free Transactions
One of the biggest inconveniences with using an ATM outside of your network is the fees that you incur for each transaction. A couple of dollars might not seem like a lot, but when you get cash from an ATM frequently, the dollars can add up quickly. No transaction fees can mean big savings in the long run and help ensure that more of your money stays in your pocket.
Location, Location, Location!
With credit union shared ATMs in the CO-OP network, fee-free ATMs are available in more than 30,000 locations across the United States and Canada. This convenience can translate to financial savings and peace of mind that you can access your cash no matter where you are.
For people on the go who don't have time to research the locations of approved ATMs, CO-OP network locations can be accessed with the click of a button. SMS texting can be used to receive locations of nearby ATMs delivered directly to your phone.
Software is also available for GPS users who want easy access to ATM locations. By downloading the network database to your navigation system, receiving directions to the nearest CO-OP shared ATM becomes a breeze.
