Of course, our Smart Shopper team won't leave you hanging.


Here are three ways to avoid the fees:


Choose a bank with a large ATM network, so you have no fees, or choose one that reimburses you.


Use your debit card and get cash back, of course at places with no fees.


Finally, find a fee-free ATM. You can search online or try Allpoint, which allows you to find the nearest Allpoint ATM – they don’t charge fees.
