Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES

HOUSTON, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATM leader Cardtronics and Chime, a consumer fintech with a mission to help its members achieve financial peace of mind, announced today they have signed an agreement to expand Chime’s ATM access. In 2021, Chime members will be able to access their cash surcharge-free when using their Chime debit card at Allpoint ATMs at select retail locations nationwide.

“Giving consumers convenient access to fee-free ATMs is important to Chime’s vision of helping its members get ahead by making managing money easier. With 85% of Americans living within five miles of a Cardtronics-owned ATM, Chime will be adding another layer of convenience and scale, and we are pleased to be part of providing that access,” said Carter Hunt, Managing Director of North America for Cardtronics.

Cardtronics owns Allpoint, the largest retail-based surcharge-free ATM network in the world, with most ATMs located in top retail establishments, including grocery and convenience stores, pharmacies, and big-box stores. The future addition of select Allpoint ATMs to the Chime network will broaden the scope of surcharge-free cash access points available to Chime members.
