This is the second part of Things Just Got More Expensive. Today I tried to get money from the ATMs. HSBC’s ATM had a problem, but a different problem than the other day. Then I tried the two ATM’s in El Rey, The first ATM said the account didn’t have sufficient funds. I had asked for $500, since I didn’t want to pay $3 for less. Then I tried the other ATM. It said that the amount was too high. I changed the amount to $300 and it gave money.
So, that implies to me that the new programming change implemented by Clave has also limited the amount that can be withdrawn to $300.
The effect is that if you typically get $1,500 a month, it will not take 5 withdrawals vs 3 before. That will cost you $15. I am confident my credit union didn’t change my withdrawal limit, but I am going to send them an email anyway to verify it.
Want more – costs more. Want same – costs more. Want less – costs more.
