What is a ding-free® ATM?
Members have always enjoyed access to thousands of ding free® ATM’s across Canada (an ATM network bigger than most banks). “ding free®” means that members pay no surcharges at credit union and other participating ATM’s across Canada for withdrawals, deposits and balance inquiries.
A surcharge (or convenience fee) is a fee charged by an ATM owner at the time of the transaction and appears on the ATM receipt. A surcharge ranges from $1 to $3, and comes with a warning screen before the ATM transaction is complete. Surcharges are not the same as transaction or account fees, which would appear on a member’s monthly statement – i.e. when a member exceeds the limits of a package account that comes with a fixed amount of free transactions per month.
