Get cash from stores

Closeup of dollar bill

It's a cheaper way to refill your wallet than using a competitor's machine.

Purchase something small but essential and ask for cash back. Most retailers will provide up to $50. You'll avoid the $3 to $4 in fees the ATM and your bank will charge.

Never use unbranded ATM machines, especially those found in convenience stores. They have the highest fees and have been used in sophisticated scams to steal PINs and loot bank accounts.
