ATMs and cashback

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling from the UK, with my husband, in September for 3 weeks in Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. I am very excited about the trip which I am starting to plan in detail.

I was planning to get cash from ATMs using my debit card, issued by a UK bank. I understand that most ATMs in the USA charge about $2.50 per transactions (which they don't in the UK). I have read that a way around this is by getting cashback when you make purchases in stores.

Can anyone give me any advise on this? If cashback is a good way of getting cash which stores e.g. supermarkets, do this. Does anyone know whether the stores have any problem taking UK debit cards for cashback?

Any tips gratefully received!
