Citibank has partnered with Cardtronics, the world’s largest owner and operator of ATMs, to provide over 30,000 additional fee-free ATMs in major cities throughout the U.S.

The agreement between Citi and Cardtronics practically doubles Citi’s network of fee-free ATMs for account holders in a variety of retail locations, including Costco, CVS and Target. Citi is also adding fee-free ATMs to Duane Reade and Walgreens in select locations.

"By nearly doubling our network of surcharge-free ATMs, we're making it even easier for Citibank customers to meet their banking needs on the go," Will Howle, head of U.S. retail banking at Citi, stated in a press release.

Fees on the rise

According to Bankrate’s annual checking account survey, out-of-network ATM fees averaged $4.57 per withdrawal in 2016 -- hitting a record high for the 10th year in a row.

By providing more ATM locations that allow Citi customers to perform essential banking activities free of charge -- such as withdrawing cash, checking account balances and transferring funds between primary linked accounts -- Citi aims to offer some welcome relief to its customers. Howle stated that Citi is committed “to delivering a higher level of value, convenience, service and expertise” to customers by offering enhanced product offerings as well as expanding its ATM network.

Reaching major metropolitan markets

The additional surcharge-free ATMs are available in most of the following store locations:

  • Costco stores in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
  • CVS stores in Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco.
  • Duane Reade stores in New York City.
  • Target stores in New York and Washington, D.C.

Citi also plans to roll out fee-free ATMs in Chicago- and New York-based Walgreens locations later this year.
