Getting cash at an ATM
Show all answers
What is the maximum amount of money I can withdraw at an ATM?
The amount you can withdraw from an ATM is based on several factors, including limits that are set based on your card or account type, availability of funds in your account at the time the withdrawal is requested and in some cases the amount the ATM is capable of dispensing.
How do I set a Cash Preference?
Setting a Cash Preference enables you to set a preference for a specific dollar amount you commonly withdraw. Once you’ve set a Cash Preference amount, this preferred amount will appear on the PIN entry screen and also on “How much cash do you want?” during a Get cash withdrawal selected from the ATM’s main menu. Simply enter your PIN and then tap your preferred amount to speed up your withdrawal. In some cases, the maximum Cash Preference amount that can be set may be lower than your ATM daily withdrawal limit. To change your preferred Cash Preference amount at any time, visit a Bank of America ATM and start your transaction as you normally would. Select View more from the main menu, Manage preferences, then Cash preference, See how to set your ATM preferences
You will also be presented with additional withdrawal amount options on the PIN entry screen. You can quickly select one of the offered options, rather than going to the ATM’s main menu to complete your withdrawal. If you need to withdraw money from an account other than the primary checking account assigned to your debit card, follow the Get cash prompts on the ATM’s main menu.
What denominations are available at Bank of America ATMs?
When getting cash at a Bank of America ATM, you will have the ability to choose what bill types you would like for your withdrawal. Most of our ATMs have $10s, $20s or $100s available for selection, but sometimes there are exceptions. If there is more than one denomination to choose from at the time of your withdrawal, you will have the opportunity to select it in all of the same bill type (for example, in all $10s), choose a custom selection, or allow the ATM to pick for you.
How do I use the Mobile Banking app to get cash at a Bank of America ATM?
Setting up ATM withdrawals through our Mobile Banking app is easy—and can save you time when you’re on the go. Here’s how:
- Log in to our Mobile Banking app and select the checking or savings account from which you would like to get cash.Personal Schedule of Fees for additional information.” href=”#ftn_atmWithdrawalFromCheckingOrSavings_content”>

- Select your preferred receipt type: Email Receipt, Paper Receipt or No Receipt.
- If cash is not picked up within 24 hours the Mobile Banking app setup for your ATM withdrawal will expire.
- Setting up your withdrawal in the Mobile Banking app doesn’t deduct or hold funds in your account. Funds are debited from your account when you complete your withdrawal at any Bank of America ATM.
- The available balance in your account is confirmed during setup, but if funds are no longer sufficient to complete your withdrawal at the time of pickup your transaction may be declined.
- You don’t need to be logged in to the Mobile Banking app in order to pick up your cash.
- Once you arrive at a Bank of America ATM, insert your card into the card reader (the same card you selected when setting your withdrawal up in the app), tap your contactless card on the contactless reader or hold your mobile device’s digital wallet over the contactless reader. Follow the ATM on-screen prompts to enter your debit card PIN and pick up your cash. Please note that if you’re using a digital wallet, you must have your debit card selected.

Using ATMs in foreign countries
Show all answers
What tips can you give me for using an ATM in foreign countries?
Here are five tips for using ATMs in foreign countries:
1. Check the network
You can use your Bank of America debit card or ATM card anywhere you see the CIRRUS symbol. In addition to CIRRUS, you can use ATMs with the Mastercard or Visa symbols. The symbol on the front of your card will indicate if your card is Mastercard or Visa.
Find a Mastercard/CIRRUS ATM layer
Find a Visa ATM layer
2. Understand the types of fees being charged.
The non-Bank of America ATM usage fee is $5. This fee is assessed for each withdrawal, transfer or balance inquiry performed at a non-Bank of America ATM in a foreign country. In addition, the ATM operator may charge an access fee for cash withdrawals. Your deposit account statement will reflect the U.S. dollar equivalent of your foreign ATM withdrawal. Bank of America will assess an international transaction fee of 3% of the U.S. dollar amount for all ATM withdrawals processed in foreign currency. International ATM operators may offer to do your currency conversion for you, but they may charge a higher fee for conversion. To insure that your currency conversion does not incur a fee higher than the one stated above, you may refuse the ATM operator’s offer to convert the amount of the transaction. The fee is assessed as a separate transaction fee on the posting date of the withdrawal.
3. Verify your PIN before you travel.
Most international ATM operators support up to 12-digit PINs. However, some ATM operators only support four-digit PINs. Be sure your PIN does not start with a zero. Be sure to know your PIN by numbers, as some ATMs outside the United States don’t have letters on the keypad. If necessary, change your PIN before traveling to a foreign country. See how to change your PIN
4. Some international ATMs have limited functions.
All international ATM operators will provide you with withdrawal access from your primary checking account, but some may not offer access to your savings account or the ability to conduct transfers and balance inquiries. Some international ATMs are only available during normal business hours. Some international ATMs may not offer instructions in English.
5. Have a backup plan.
Systems used by international banks may occasionally be unavailable while you’re traveling, so there’s a possibility you won’t be able to use your card when you need to at an ATM or to make a purchase. In addition to using your debit or ATM card while traveling, consider also taking some foreign currency with you. Learn more about ordering foreign currency
Should I get foreign currency before I travel?
Many travelers find it helpful to have local currency immediately upon arrival in a foreign country for tips, taxis and other miscellaneous expenditures. Some airports and train stations do not have foreign exchange offices; if they do, they may have limited hours of operation and may charge higher rates for currency exchange.
Bank of America clients with checking and savings accounts can order foreign currency using Online Banking or the Mobile Banking app. Customers with credit cards only can order currency at a financial center. Learn more about ordering foreign currency

Bank of America ATM Deposit and Withdrawal Limits Bank of America ATM Withdrawal and Deposit Limits and How To Get More Cash Sundry Photography / Shutterstock.com Thinking of opening a new savings or checking account?

If you typically deposit or withdraw significant amounts of cash, you want to make sure you can do so in a way that suits your needs. Understanding how much cash you can withdraw from your Bank of America checking or savings account at an ATM, and what to do if you need more, will help you better manage your money. Here’s what you need to know about the Bank of America ATM withdrawal limit and deposit limit. What Is the Maximum Amount of Money I Can Withdraw at a Bank of America ATM? The Bank of America daily ATM limit for a checking or savings account is $1,000 per account. This can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of account or card you have and the amount the ATM is able to dispense. The amount also depends on how much you have in your account, of course, and whether or not you have overdraft protection. What Is the Maximum Deposit Limit for Bank of America ATMs? There is no Bank of America deposit limit for deposits made in an ATM, although there might be a limit to the number of bills or checks you can deposit in a single transaction, based on the capacity of the ATM. How Quickly Will Deposited Funds Be Available? The amount of time it takes for funds to be available for you to withdraw depends on the type of deposit.

Bank of America Withdrawal Limit — How Much Can You Take Out? Bank of America is one of the leading commercial banks in the United States. With a Bank of America account, you have access to a nationwide network of ATMs. However, you may not be sure exactly how much money you can get at a time, and how long you have to wait. If you want to learn more about your Bank of America withdrawal limit and how it works, read on. Maximum Money that Can Be Withdrawn at a Bank of America ATM The maximum amount of money you can withdraw from your Bank of America account at a Bank of America ATM depends on your account type, your balance, and whether you have changed the limits at any point. If you have never changed the limit, it will still be set to the default amount for your account type. For a Bank of America checking account, the default ATM withdrawal limit is $ 1,000 per day. Other account types have different limits. Check your online banking profile, or visit your local branch to find out what your withdrawal limit is. Once you reach the Bank of America withdrawal limit for your account you will not be able to withdraw any more money at any ATM. These limits are a practical measure to ensure all ATM users can get cash when they need it. Banks only keep a relatively small fraction of their total deposits in cash for practical and security reasons. To ensure as many people as possible have access to cash, banks impose ATM withdrawal limits so that a small number of people don’t end up withdrawing all the cash and inconveniencing others. You have to wait 24 hours from the last withdrawal for the daily withdrawal limit to reset to zero. Then you will be able to withdraw any amount of money up to your daily withdrawal limit again. Please note the above information about the Bank of America withdrawal limit applies for users of Bank of America debit cards at Bank of America ATMs. If you are withdrawing cash from a Bank of America ATM using a different bank’s credit or debit card, then the withdrawal limit will be determined by the other bank, not by the Bank of America ATM. The ATM will allow you to withdraw whatever amount your card allows, and charge a usage fee. Maximum Money that Can be Deposited at a Bank of America ATM You can deposit money into your Bank of America account by various methods including check, ATM cash deposit, or in-branch cash deposit. Each method works slightly differently. The maximum amount of money you can deposit using each method varies. A physical Bank of America branch will allow you to deposit the largest sum of money in person. ATMs that accept deposits have a limit per transaction because of how much cash their machinery can physically process at a time. How Quickly Will Deposited Funds Be Available? For in-branch cash deposits, the funds will be available in your account immediately. For check deposits, the funds may take several days to partially or fully clear. For most check deposits, the money will be available the next business day. For ATM cash deposits, the funds will be available immediately, but only if the deposit was made during business hours. If you deposit the cash on a public holiday the money will only be available in your account on the next business day. How To Increase ATM Withdrawal and Deposit Limits You can increase your Bank of America withdrawal and deposit limit if you need to. Withdrawal Limit There are a few different ways to increase your Bank of America withdrawal limit. However, keep in mind you will not be allowed to increase it to any arbitrarily large number—every bank has limits on how much cash it is willing to give to a single customer…
ATM Withdrawal & Daily Debit Purchase Limits: What Are They?
ATM Withdrawal & Daily Debit Purchase Limits: What Are They? Your ATM Withdrawal and Daily Debt Purchase limit will typically vary from $300 to $2,500 depending on who you bank with and what kind of account you have. There are no monetary limits for withdrawals from savings accounts, but federal law does limit the number of savings withdrawals to six each month. Because financial institutions only keep a fraction of their bank deposits on hand in cash, all banks impose daily limits on how much money their customers can withdraw from checking accounts through ATMs, as well as how much money they can spend using debit cards. Average Limits for ATM Withdrawals and Daily Debit Purchases by Bank The following table lists a range of ATM withdrawal limits and daily debit purchase limits for different checking accounts at some of the largest banks in the US: BankDaily ATM Withdrawal LimitDaily Debit Purchase LimitBank of America$1,000$5,000BB&T$500-$1,500$3,000-$6,000Capital One$610$2,500Chase Bank$400-$500$400-$3,000Citibank$1,000-$2,000$5,000-$10,000HSBC$500-$1,000$3,000Huntington National Bank$400$400M&T Bank$500$2,500PNC Bank$100-$1,500$100-$9,500Regions Bank$800$5,000Santander$1,000-$2,500$5,000-$11,500SunTrust$500-$2,500$3,000-$30,000 The type of account you hold with your financial service provider will often affect your ATM withdrawal limit as well as your daily debit card spending limit. For instance, student accounts tend to have lower limits and premium accounts enjoy higher limits. Occasionally, banks institute different limits on daily debit purchases depending on how the transaction is tendered. The most common distinction is between pin purchases, completed using pin numbers, and non-pin purchases, which you sign for. How to Increase Your Daily ATM Withdrawal and Debit Spending Limit If you need more physical cash or daily funds available, there are a few ways to raise your ATM withdrawal and daily debit limits. Most banks are flexible with raising these limits for accounts held by long-time customers. These increases may not be significant, but it’s worth contacting your local banker to see if they’re willing to negotiate a higher limit for you. If you are unsatisfied or want to switch to an account with higher limits, you can also upgrade your existing account or find a new bank. Increase Your Daily ATM Withdrawal Limit If you are looking to increase your withdrawal limit temporarily, many banks are willing to raise ATM withdrawal limits for short-term periods. This is especially true if you notify your bank about special circumstances such as being on vacation. Keep in mind that if you use an ATM outside of your bank’s network, you could be charged ATM withdrawal fees. Another method to obtain more cash is by utilizing the cash back feature on your debit card. But it is important to remember that the cash charged through cashback will simply fall under your daily debit purchase limit. Finally, you can always simply go into your bank in person and withdraw however much cash you need, regardless of your account’s ATM withdrawal limits. However, be aware that 1970 Bank Secrecy Act, written to target potentially fraudulent activity, requires banks to report all aggregate daily cash withdrawals that exceed $10,000. Repeated daily transactions that fall just under the $10,000 mark will be reported as well. Increase Your Debit Card Spending Limit As with ATM withdrawal limits, banks may also be willing to adjust your daily debit purchase limit if you contact them directly on an individual case by case basis. These may also be temporary or permanent limit adjustments for your account. If you intend to make a one-time extremely expensive debit card purchase, it is important to notify your bank in advance. This way they will not mark the transaction as potentially fraudulent activity, especially if you do not tend to make big ticket purchases, and they will also release the funds to allow…

Your ATM max withdrawal limit depends on who you bank with, as each bank or credit union establishes its own policies. But, generally, ATM cash withdrawal limits range from $300 to $1,000 per day. Again, this is determined by the bank or credit union; there is no standard daily ATM withdrawal limit. Your personal bank ATM withdrawal limit also may depend on the type of accounts you have and your banking history. For example, if you’re brand-new to a bank and you’ve opened a basic checking account, you may have a lower ATM withdrawal limit than someone who’s had a premium checking account there for 10 years. Specialty accounts, such as second chance checking or student checking, may also have different cash withdrawal limits at the ATM. How Much Money Can You Withdraw From an ATM at One Time? In addition to a daily ATM limit set by the bank or credit union, some ATMs can have limits on the amount of cash they’re able to dispense per withdrawal. Daily ATM cash withdrawal limits may be different from daily purchase limits. For example, your bank may limit you to withdrawing $400 at the ATM, but you may be able to make up to $4,000 in purchases each day using your debit card. Institutions may keep ATM withdrawal limits and purchase limits separate or set a third limit on the total amount of money you can take out of your account via withdrawals and purchases each day. Again, these limits are designed to smooth cash flow for the bank while protecting you and your accounts. Which ATM Lets You Withdraw the Most Money? As mentioned above, your institution determines your ATM withdrawal limit. The higher your bank’s daily ATM withdrawal limit or per transaction withdrawal limit, the more cash you’ll be able to get. This means that if your bank imposes a $1,000 max ATM withdrawal limit per day, that’s the most cash you’ll be able to withdraw, regardless of which ATM you use. This is why it’s important to carefully review the fine print when opening a new bank account. The terms and conditions should outline exactly how much cash you can get via ATM withdrawal. Even if you don’t carry cash very often, it’s important to get cash when you need it, in the amount that you need it. If your bank or credit union has a lower daily ATM cash withdrawal limit, that could be a problem if you need a larger amount of money and can’t get to a branch to withdraw it.
