Members of Maine credit unions who use iPhones will now have access to an iPhone app that will help them locate surcharge-free ATMs nearby.
The phones will direct credit union members to an ATM belong to the SURF ATM Alliance, a network of over 200 surcharge-free ATMs located throughout Maine.
"While in the past you would have needed to plan ahead if you wanted to access a SURF location, with this application, members will have live information regarding SURF locations and won't need to rely on accessing the first ATM terminal that they see," Rebekah Higgins, Assistant Vice President for Synergent Card Services, explained. Synergent administers the SURF ATM Alliance.
She added that this new convenience is one more way that Synergent is making it easier for members to have access to surcharge-free ATMS wherever their travels take them. "Synergent's commitment to the growth and integrity of SURF has contributed to the long term success of the network. Credit unions continue to add ATM Terminal locations in new geographic locations that allow even more coverage and access to credit union cardholders," she said.
