PHOENIX, March 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allpoint Network today announced that it has expanded access to surcharge-free Allpoint ATMs in Phoenix. Allpoint, the world’s largest surcharge-free ATM network, provides convenient cash access in 330 premier retail locations – now including all QuikTrip stores – throughout the Phoenix metro area.
At $3.15, Phoenix has the second-highest ATM surcharge fees in the country. If Phoenix residents use an out-of-network ATM once per week, they could spend more than $160 a year in ATM fees. Allpoint Network’s addition of all Arizona QuikTrip locations enables Phoenicians to conveniently access their money and avoid the surcharge fee.
To raise awareness of surcharge-free ATM access, the Allpoint Network will host a “Surcharge-Free Day,” offering Phoenicians and visitors surcharge-free access to all Allpoint ATMs in Arizona QuikTrip locations, regardless of their financial institution1. The Allpoint Network will also work alongside Councilman Bill Gates to inform residents and visitors of free events and activities throughout the city.
“The City of Phoenix is growing at a steady pace, and as the city expands, our job is to educate Phoenicians on the wealth of opportunities available for Phoenicians and visitors,” said Phoenix Councilwoman Laura Pastor. “As a part of this campaign, my team has worked with Allpoint to create an informational ‘Welcome to Feenix’ passport that maps out free activities in the City of Phoenix, including free events at the science center, trolley tours, yoga classes and more.”
“Our goal is to educate Phoenicians on the free and family-friendly ways to enjoy everything our city has to offer,” said Phoenix Councilman Bill Gates. “With this campaign, we’re supporting local businesses, the arts and culture, as well as the quality of life for all of our residents and visitors.”
