Do you think that banks will impose service charge for using ATM?

I have not seen them cutting nor reducing any service charge so I won't be surprised. At the end, like when they impose minimum balance and cheque book cost, find one bank that waive such cost if not suck thumb fly kite lot :)

Malaysia has been doing this for a while: they charge if you withdraw money more than x number of times a day.

If banks want to charge ATM transactions, they will have to charge transactions done at branch tellers first. Cost of doing ATM transactions are much less than at branches, and the proliferation of ATM is to reduce the dependency on branches.

Paying to get my own money back? Are they nuts? It's standard duty and obligation of the bank to return my money. I would accept service charges if I withdraw from an ATM of another bank (say: using DBS card on UOB ATM) - but that's already too complex here for the banks .. in other countries it works like a charm.

A better answer would be "Do You Have A Choice"...

If one bank does this.... you could switch to another bank. But if ALL of them does the same ?? What are you going to do... line up at the Teller daily to draw $$ ?? Or after pay day, take every cents out of your account ??

I could accept charging ppl who make more than 3 withdrawal a day... but the current 'limit' to 3 withdrawal a day should remain free. :sweat:

haha, no way i would pay to get a ATM withdrawal on my own account! i would rather keep the money under my pillow... in any case, any financial savvy people shouldnt hoard too much money as savings, most of it will be reinvested at a rate that is higher than inflation...

Kanchanaburi, that brings back memory. The food in the canteen is cheap and good provided you don't see who is serving you. There is once I also throw up when they are putting make up for each other in front of the store as I am eating.

On topic, I personally find charging for ATM transaction more than X number of time per day is fine with me, but charging for every ATM transaction is not. Think again how much we need to pay for other interesting stuff to the garment especially those related to cars, this is small fry.

if your power bills increase, so are the banks paying for those machines. Oil price is going up due to Middle East tensions, so i guess it will eventually be implemented

If you work for DBS POSB and submit this as a company SSS, you can get a big bonus after it is implemented.
It is a new and never ending income stream for the bank.
Just don't tell your friends and neighbours who got bank account with DBS that you were the culprit who thought of it.

Just to add on what h been posted, having ATM te banks would:

1. Less tellers which translate to less branches which is why POSB cuts down the number of branches
2. Less branches mean less manpowers, less maintennce.... etc
3. Banks handle less cash and less security problem and the risk is passed on to the customers

The benefit for the customer is more convenience but also more risk

So what do you think?

I will put the money in biscuit tin than put in the bank.

That is possible with any or all of your extra cash... BUT

* Paying bills by SAM/AXN Machine... (ATM Card Needed)
* Paying by NETS (ATM Card Needed)
* Paying by Cheuqes (Bank Account Needed)
* Getting Paid by your Company (Bank Account Needed)

:sweat:
