Cities with the lowest ATM fees

Checking » Checking Account » Cities With The Lowest ATM Fees In 2013

Bankrate surveyed banks in 25 U.S. cities to find the average fees associated with checking accounts in its 2013 Checking Account Survey.

The data come from surveying the five largest banks and five largest thrifts in 25 of the nation's biggest markets from July 15 to Aug. 2, 2013. We asked those institutions about terms on one generic noninterest account and one interest-bearing account for the general consumer.

Banks have tried to recoup lost revenue by bumping up fees. An ATM surcharge, or a fee for using a bank's ATM when you're not a checking account holder at that bank, is one fee that may be on the rise. In these cities, the fee is below the national average.
