Getting cash out of an ATM can sometimes be a pain when people are not near one that’s associated with their bank.
Surcharge fees can pile up and sometimes dissuade people from using ATMs.
Consumers visiting Rite Aid are going to see relief as the drug store and pharmacy chain has partnered up with Allpoint. The company’s locations in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest will soon have surcharge-free ATMs installed. Currently, Allpoint’s ATMs are available at 3,000 Rite Aid stores across the United States.
Allpoint’s parent company Cardtronics’ managing director of North America, Brian Bailey, commented on this new addition to Rite Aid in the company’s news release. “Already the leader in scale and density of high-quality retail locations, now including Rite Aid pharmacies, Allpoint is committed to helping our financial institutions provide their cardholders with a convenient and growing base of surcharge-free ATMs where it matters most.”
Consumers today are wanting most of their services fast and inexpensive, and as such, it’s likely that we’ll continue to see either reduced or waived fees for situations like getting money from an ATM.
