Just remember that in Australia, if you use another bank's ATM, or an ATM in a pub/shop/restaurant/club, they will charge you $2 (I think) for each transaction, which means if you check your balance first, then withdraw money, that is two transactions and two charges.

 

I hate it and I go out of my way to find an ANZ ATM. Perhaps I'm not entirely correct because some banks do have an arrangement with other banks, although using non-bank ATMs will invariably mean a charge.

 

Some shops and bars will let you pay with your card without charge, whilst others will enforce a minimum 'spend.'

 

What is the correct term for when you swipe your card over the top of the machine and it charges your credit card automatically? "Pay something?" Very popular anyway.

 

Many pubs and bars in the city offer a Clipp account, attached to your mobile phone, so if a pub has a Clipp facility, you log in on your phone, choose the name of the pub, and you create an account for the duration you are in the place, actually until you close the account, or the establishment does. The beauty of it is that there is no minimum spend.

:mask: Just to remind people this is the NAB area of the forum :) Generally for asking NAB stuff and having their replies.

 

If you want to chit chat about stuff its fine, just will move the thread out of the NAB area.

Mary that's why ING is great. Every ATM is free. Even dodgy pub ones.

Yeah I knew about atm's charging. I think I'll just try pay most things with my card which is what I do over here most of the time anyway

Just try to draw cash from NAB ATMs. Maybe get a debit card rather than a credit card, or both.

Im not getting a credit card, I already have one which im not planning on using because it's a high interest one since I don't have a proper credit history. I got it for absolute flight emergencies
