ATM Fees estimates that Americans pay more than $4.3 billion in ATM fees for withdrawing money from a banking machine that charges fees. If you’re using your banking machine like a wallet, paying a $1.50 fee for a $20 withdrawal, you’re blowing your brains out on fees. It’s doubly bad if you end up having to pay that fee twice: once at the bank machine you used and again at your own bank for using a machine that was out of bounds. Stick with your own bank’s ATM to save money and plan your spending so you only have to go to your own machine a couple of times a month.
