Get cash back on debit purchases when travelling
I haven’t had much luck finding credit union ATMs in the maritimes. I tried because I abhor ATM fees and the credit union network offers Ding Free use of ATMs in their network. I tried a causes populaire (the French version of a credit union) but got dinged $3.00 – Argh. A few hours later I picked up a few things at the grocery store. I should have skipped the ATM all together and taken cash out during the retail transaction. It would have saved me money and irritation. Lesson learned.
