Why does every bank insist on screwing people that aren't its customers???
I've been trying to find a nice surcharge-free ATM around my apartment, one that won't nail me for a couple bucks every time I try to get some cash. I hadn't made much progress when I finally got my hopes up.
There's a Washington Mutual ATM a couple blocks from my building.
Great right? Washington Mutual was the first (that I know of) bank to widely publicize a big 'No-Surcharge' policy.
"Come use our ATM's even if you aren't our customer! Be our guest!"
Apparently they've abandoned all that, and now it's just $2 for everyone without the benefit of a WaMu account.
It must really cost them a lot of money to not royally screw the cash-poor.
But I'm not giving up, since I have no job and nothing to do until Costa Rica, rest assured, I will find a free ATM!
