17 Smart Ways to Avoid The Most Common Pesky Fees

If you withdraw cash from an ATM outside your bank’s network, both your bank and the ATM’s operator may hit you with fees—charging a combined average of $4.68, according to Bankrate. Choose a bank with a strong ATM network where you live and commonly travel. Or pick an account that charges no out-of-network ATM fees and reimburses you for the fees ATM owners charge.

Premium checking accounts from larger banks often provide such refunds (you’ll typically have to keep a large balance to avoid a monthly fee), and free accounts from some other institutions—especially internet banks—do, too. The free Ally Bank Interest Checking Account reimburses $10 monthly in out-of-network ATM fees.
