and the City of Phoenix will be celebrating expanded access to surcharge-free Allpoint ATMs in Phoenix beginning Monday, March 7 through Sunday, April 3. Events include a “Surcharge-Free Day,” on Saturday, March 12 offering Phoenicians and visitors – regardless of their financial institution – surcharge-free access to all Allpoint ATMs in Arizona QuikTrip locations, and a “Welcome to Feenix” initiative to remind Phoenicians of the multitude of free activities and events available in the city.
The celebration marks the recent expansion of Allpoint ATMs to 330 premier retail locations – including all QuikTrip locations in the Phoenix metro area and across Arizona.
At $3.15, Phoenix has the second-highest ATM surcharge fees in the country. If Phoenix residents use an out-of-network ATM once per week, they could spend more than $160 a year in ATM fees. Allpoint Network’s addition of all Arizona QuikTrip locations enables Phoenicians to conveniently access their money and avoid the surcharge fee.
In addition to “Surcharge-Free Day,” Allpoint has also worked alongside Phoenix Councilman Bill Gates and Councilwoman Laura Pastor to inform residents and visitors of free events and activities throughout the city. One of the results of the collaboration is a “Welcome to Feenix” passport that maps out free activities in the City of Phoenix, including free events at the science center, trolley tours, yoga classes and more.

“Allpoint Network’s mission has always been to provide consumers with convenient surcharge-free ATM cash access across the U.S. and beyond. The expansion of the Allpoint Network into all Arizona QuikTrip locations is a step in the direction of helping citizens more easily enjoy everything Phoenix has to offer,” said Bill Knoll, managing director, Allpoint Network. “We look forward to educating residents on the various ways to save money throughout the city, including avoiding ATM surcharge fees as a member of the Allpoint Network.”
