With moving as often as we do, we end up banking with several different banks.  While some banks don’t charge ATM fees, others have charged me as much as $4!  ($2 from the bank I used and $2 from my bank.)  So to me, it is worth it to spend the few extra minutes parking and running into the nearest grocery store or supercenter if I need cash. I will simply make a small purchase of something I need that I can rarely get cheaper with coupons (milk, bread, etc.), use my pin number, and get cash back.  Most places let you get up to $100 cash back. 

 

If I needed cash once per month, that could be an annual savings of $48!  Every little bit really dies add up!

 

Annual Savings This Series:

  1. Cell Phone Bill – $480
  2. Electric Bill – $1200
  3. Auto Insurance – $311
  4. Extra charges on bill – $35.88
  5. Gas Loyalty Programs – $210
  6. Cable/Satellite TV – $660
  7. Contacts – $112
  8. Internet – $101
  9. Auto Maintenance – $272
  10. ATM Fees – $48

Total Savings to Date = $3429.88
