Allpoint Network has announced that it has joined with Discover Financial Services to provide millions of Discover cardmembers with surcharge-free access to cash through 43,000 Allpoint ATMs in the US. Discover Financial Services is a direct banking and payment services company with one of the most recognized brands in U.S. financial services. Allpoint Network is an affiliate of Cardtronics, Inc., the world’s largest retail ATM owner.
Ready to serve Discover cardmembers at many of America’s best-known retailers, Allpoint Network’s surcharge-free ATMs are conveniently located coast-to-coast, in destination retail outlets including major discount retailers, as well as convenience, grocery and pharmacy stores—places that are already part of people’s daily routines. As America’s largest surcharge-free ATM Network, Allpoint helps more than 1,200 financial services providers, representing more than 60 million cardholders, save time and money when accessing their cash.
“In the direct banking environment, accountholders may be willing to forgo brick-and-mortar offices, but convenient cash access is still a must-have service. Discover is meeting that demand with surcharge-free ATM access through Allpoint, which brings together two brands known for delivering value to accountholders,” said Ben Psillas, president, Allpoint Network.
“One of Discover’s top priorities is providing the best customer service in the business, which means giving cardmembers convenient surcharge-free access to cash,” said Dan Matysik, vice president for Deposit Products. “Allpoint’s ATM network has cash stations throughout the country that our cardmembers can easily use.”
