Say Goodbye to ATM surcharges
We've all been there. Standing in front of another financial institution's ATM, just waiting to get dinged by a surcharge fee for accessing our cash, but as a credit union member you have access to a Canada-wide network of ding free®, which means you pay no surcharges at credit union and other participating ATMs across Canada.
A surcharge (or convenience fee) is a fee charged by an ATM owner at the time of the transaction. It usually 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– i.e. a transaction fee is charged for any transactions above and beyond what is included in your monthly package ex: Mainstreet's Complete account includes 25 transactions per month so you would be charged on your 26th transaction).

Traveling to the USA
Look for the Accel® debit payments network logo at over 500,000 ATMs whenever and wherever you are traveling in the United States. As a Canadian Exchange cardholder, you can withdraw money from any ATM displaying the Accel logo. You can withdraw surcharge-free from some, but not all US based ATMs. Deposits are only allowed at EXCHANGE ATMs in Canada, so if you are going to be away for an extended period and need to deposit to your account, plan ahead and talk with your financial institution about other options available to you.
