HOUSTON, June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Santander Bank customers looking for the nearest fee-free ATM now benefit from the addition of 200 new machines to its ATM network. Through an extended relationship with Cardtronics, the world’s largest ATM owner/operator, Santander-branded ATMs are now in most Market Basket grocery store locations in Massachusetts and additional CVS Pharmacy stores in the Northeast.
This marks the first time Santander ATMs have been available in Market Basket stores. With these additional locations, Santander now has more than 2,000 ATMs available to customers throughout the Bank’s eight-state footprint from New Hampshire to Delaware.
“Offering our fee-free ATMs at popular retailers is one of the many ways we show our customers how we respect their time and money,” said Michael Cleary, co-president of Santander Bank and head of Consumer and Business Banking. “By expanding our ATM service relationship with Cardtronics, we are creating greater convenience for our customers and improving their banking experience with Santander.”
Powered by Cardtronics, the use of Santander-branded ATMs is free for Bank customers, allowing them to withdraw cash, transfer money between accounts and check their account balance without incurring fees. Customers can find the new machines at 41 Market Basket grocery stores in Massachusetts and 173 new CVS Pharmacy locations, bringing the number of Santander-branded ATMs in CVS Pharmacy stores to more than 1,100.
“Helping banks extend their service footprint in ways that are equally cost-effective and customer-focused is something Cardtronics is uniquely capable of doing,” said Brian Bailey, Cardtronics Managing Director – North America. “With the help of our ATMs at CVS Pharmacy and Market Basket, Santander can offer their customers convenient and fee-free cash access – from a Santander-branded ATM.”
Santander and Cardtronics will continue to work together to add more ATMs at Market Basket stores in Massachusetts and CVS Pharmacies throughout the Northeast as they become available.
