ding free® from sea to sea

From BC to Newfoundland, credit union members have access to over 1,800 surcharge-free ATMs.  Added up, that’s a bigger ATM network than most banks. And it’s all ding free®.

Leave ATM surcharges behind you.

We’ve all been dinged by surcharge fees at an ATM that wasn’t our own. But as a member of Cornerstone Credit Union, you don’t have to rely on our ATMs to keep from getting dinged ever again. In fact, you’re part of one of the largest surcharge-free ATM networks in the country.

Any credit union ATM is your credit union ATM.

Belonging to a national ATM network means you can bank ding free from sea to sea, with access to a national network of surcharge-free ATMs – a network bigger than most banks. Just look for a ding free sign on your ATM, and say goodbye to those pesky surcharge fees.

Available for iPhone, Android, Windows and Blackberry devices, our new ding free® locator app can help you find the nearest surcharge-free ATM – wherever you are. To get yours for free, visit ding-free.ca
