January 27th, 2015 at 2:39 pm

When Bankrate published their annual Checking Survey in 2014, it provided some surprising reports of the high rates for ATM fees and overdraft fees. We know fees can add up quickly, and that’s why we keep transaction fees out of our Quickcharge software. Bankrate’s survey shows that, on average, the fee banks are charging non-customers rose to $2.77 this year, and the average fee charged from a customer’s bank for using another bank’s ATM rose to $1.58.
