One of the perks with the Ally Bank
checking account is not having to worry about ATM fees. Unlike the big banks, Ally doesn't charge you when you use ATMs at other banks. Also, Ally provides for unlimited and automatic ATM fee rebates anywhere in the nation.My Money Blog put this to the test
in Las Vegas where he used the high-fee casino ATMs. At the end of the month, Ally came through and provided those ATM fee rebates.
I hope Ally customers don't abuse this perk. Ally probably should add a monthly cap. I don't want my interest rate to drop to pay the ATM fees for those spending their time in casinos and "other places" where ATM fees are high.
