TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – July 26, 2012 – Credit Union 24, the country’s largest credit union-owned ATM and point-of-sale (POS) network, announced today that its popular surcharge-free ATM programs have collectively saved credit union members more than $20 million in ATM surcharge fees during the first six months of 2012.  

“Consumers require—and always will—fee-free access to their cash, and only within the credit union movement can consumers find the largest surcharge-free ATM access,” said Jim Park, President and CEO of Credit Union 24.  “Providing this widespread, surcharge-free ATM access is possible because of our network’s collaborative business model.  The partnerships we have formed over the years with credit unions and other industry providers enable us to provide this valuable savings for credit union members.  Collaborative partnerships are the foundation of Credit Union 24’s business, and will always remain as such as the industry and our network continue to explore alternative payment methods.”   

Nearly half (42 percent) of credit unions polled in Credit Union 24’s 4th annual Credit Union Industry Survey, which was conducted in the spring of 2012, cited an increased use of ATMs among their membership during the past year.  This continues the trend during the past several years of nearly half of credit unions reporting an increased use of ATMs among credit union members nationwide.

Further analysis of the ATM savings achieved during the past six months illustrates that Credit Union 24’s participating credit unions’ members are saving, on average:

$3.3 million    per month
$110,000     per day
