Understanding ATM Fees
What is a surcharge fee?
A surcharge fee is imposed by certain ATM network owners when a foreign cardholder-someone who is not a customer of their institution-uses their machine. Any machine with a surcharge must disclose the amount and give you the option to cancel your transaction without paying the fee.
How do I avoid surcharge fees?
To avoid surcharge fees, find a CO-OP Network ATM near you. Conduct surcharge-free transactions at more than 29,000 CO-OP Network ATMs across the country. Including at many 7-11, Wawa and Sheetz stores.
What is a SDFCU transaction fee?
This is an additional $2.00 per transaction network fee that may apply to you when using all non-SDFCU ATMs. A network fee is the cost of participating in an ATM network such as STAR.This fee appears on your statement as NETWORK ATM FEE.
How do I avoid SDFCU ATM transaction fees?
Although you will not incur a surcharge fee, you may be charged a nominal $2.00 transaction fee when using a CO-OP Network ATM unless you earned Flexpoints in the previous 45 days by:
Paying a bill through online Bill Pay.
Using an SDFCU credit card; or
