We do not accept foreign checks or foreign currency at the ATMs at this time. You may visit a financial center to exchange the foreign currency for U.S. Dollars, then make your deposit. For more information about depositing foreign checks, visit your local financial center.
The ATM reads the images of the bills and compares them to images provided by the U.S. Treasury Department. If a bill is worn, folded or has extraneous marks on it, its image will not match the images provided by the U.S. Treasury Department and it will be rejected.
The most common reason is that the account and routing number has not been encoded with magnetic ink. The ATM is not able to read checks printed on machines that do not use magnetic ink, such as home printers.
At our Deposit Image ATMs the number of bills you can insert can vary by machine. Directions on the ATM screen during your deposit transaction will indicate the number of bills that can be inserted at a time.
The maximum ATM cash withdrawal amount is $1,000 or a maximum of 60 bills that can only be dispensed at one time. There may also be different limits based on account type and availability of funds. The maximum ATM cash limit when setting up a withdrawal in advance in the Mobile Banking app is $800.
Fast Cash enables you to designate an amount that you consistently withdraw from your primary checking account. Once you enter your PIN and select Fast Cash you will receive the amount previously designated. This saves you time if you frequently withdraw the same amount.

You may set or change your Fast Cash amount preference at the ATM after entering your PIN. From the Available Transactions screen, select Set Preferences, then Fast Cash Preference and designate the amount you want to assign to Fast Cash.
Accounts must be linked to your debit card or ATM card in order to make transfers between accounts at the ATM. Select Transfers & Payments from the Available Transactions screen and follow the screen prompts.

When picking up your cash at the ATM, make sure to use the same ATM/debit card that was selected for your ATM withdrawal in the Bank of America Mobile Banking app. If a different ATM/debit card is used at the ATM, you will not be able to complete the withdrawal you set up in the app.
No. The available balance in your account is confirmed when you set up your ATM withdrawal in the Bank of America Mobile app, but no deduction is made to your account until you arrive at the ATM and we are able to confirm the available funds in your account at the time you pick up your cash. If funds are no longer sufficient to complete your withdrawal, your transaction will be declined.
You may withdraw up to $800 in a single transaction, if this amount does not exceed your available account balance or daily ATM withdrawal limit for your ATM/debit card at the time of setup and when you actually pick up the cash.
You may choose one of the following receipt options in the Bank of America Mobile Banking app when setting up an ATM withdrawal:
Email receipt only (you choose which email address will be used to send your receipt)

Each check contains account and routing numbers that are encoded with magnetic ink. The ATM reads the magnetic ink and then reads the amount by using Optical Character Recognition.

The number of checking, savings, credit card or line of credit accounts linked to each debit card or ATM card may depend on the type of account(s) you have. Please visit your local financial center or contact us at 800.432.1000 to determine the exact number, and to link and unlink your accounts.

If your ATM transaction is eligible for an email receipt, your options will include Email Only, Print Only or No Receipt. In order to receive an Email Only receipt, you will be required to choose an email address during your ATM transaction.

You will always be able to choose another email address during your ATM transactions by selecting the Use Another Email button. For each eligible transaction, only 1 email address can be selected to receive an email receipt.
To protect your information, your email address will be partially hidden on the ATM screen. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org will appear as email@example.com. On the Receipt Options screen, you’re given the opportunity to Show Full Email prior to selecting an email receipt option. This will allow you to validate your email address for accuracy.
ATM email receipts contain your name and a record of your transaction, including details such as type and dollar amount of transaction, account balances, date, time and location of transaction.
The subject of the email receipt will vary based on the type of transaction, but will include “ATM receipt” as well as the transaction type (withdrawal, deposit, transfer or payment) and the date of the transaction. Email receipts are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
To protect your information, ATM email receipts will never contain your full account or card numbers.

Use your Bank of America ATM or debit card at one of our International partner ATMs and avoid the non-Bank of America ATM $5 usage fee for each withdrawal, transfer or balance inquiry as well as the ATM operator access fee.
Bank of America will assess an international transaction fee of 3% of the converted US dollar amount. Foreign 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 3%, you may refuse the ATM operator's offer to convert the amount of the transaction.
Note: Participation in this program is subject to change, please review participating Financial Institutions prior to traveling internationally and using International Partner ATMs.
Many travelers find it necessary to have local currency immediately upon arrival for tips, taxis and other miscellaneous expenditures. It’s a good idea to have some cash in foreign currency on hand for immediate expenses. Some airports and train stations do not have foreign exchange offices; if they do, they may have limited hours of operation and may charge high rates for the exchange.
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.
To find the nearest MasterCard/CIRRUS ATM, please visit https://www.mastercard.com/atm
To Find the nearest Visa ATM, please visit https://www.visa.com/atmlocator/index.jsp
Understand the types of fees 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.
You can avoid the non-Bank of America ATM usage fee and ATM operator access fee by using one of our international partner ATMs in the corresponding countries listed below:
Note: Participation in this program is subject to change, please review participating Financial Institutions prior to travelling internationally and using International Partner ATMs.
Check your PIN: Most international ATM operators support up to 12-digit PINs. However, some operators only support 4-digit PINs. Also, be sure your PIN does not start with a zero. To change your PIN, insert your ATM or debit card in to a Bank of America ATM, enter their current PIN, select More Options, select Change PIN and follow the screen prompts. Be sure to know your PIN by numbers, as some ATMs outside the United States don't have letters on the keyboards.
International ATM operators: Some international ATM operators have limited functionality and may not offer access to your savings account or offer transfers and inquiries. All ATM operators will provide withdrawal access to your primary checking account. Some international ATMs are only available during normal business hours. Some (but not all) international ATMs offer instruction in English.
Have a backup plan: While traveling overseas, systems used by international banks occasionally may go down, so there may be a possibility you will not be able to use your card when you need to use an ATM or make a purchase. In addition to using your debit card or ATM card, you should consider taking foreign currency. Please visit the foreign currency area of our website to explore these options.
A chip card is a standard-size plastic debit card that contains an embedded microchip as well as the traditional magnetic stripe. The chip encrypts information to help increase data security when making transactions at terminals or ATMs that are chip enabled. More about chip cards
No, there may be differences. Once you insert your card, the easy on-screen instructions will guide you through the transaction process.
Chip-enabled ATMs: Insert your card (you may be prompted to remove and reinsert your card). The ATM will hold your card during the transaction. Simply follow the on-screen instructions to complete your transaction and remember to take your card when your transaction is complete. If you need to conduct more than one transaction, you will need to reinsert your card and enter your PIN again as a security measure.
Non-chip-enabled ATMs: A chip card still has a magnetic stripe on the back, so if the ATM is not yet chip-enabled, your transaction will be processed as it is today.
Withdrawals, transfers and balance inquiries from ATMs at other financial institutions in the United States may be assessed a fee. You may also be charged a fee by the ATM operator or any network used. You may be charged a fee for a balance inquiry even if you do not complete a funds transfer. Other account fees may apply to the transaction such as an excess withdrawal fee for savings. Please refer to the Personal Schedule of Fees for additional information.
