With ATM fees hitting a record high for the 11th year in a row, it’s a great time to be a credit union member!
According to a recent Bankrate.com study, the average total cost of an out-of-network ATM withdrawal is now $4.69, up 2.6% from $4.57 last year. The average ATM surcharge hit a new record for the 13th year in a row, rising to $2.97 from $2.90 last year. The average fee charged by a consumer’s own financial institution for going outside the ATM network increased 3% to $1.72, also a new high.
