I don't go to the ATM often but I did go this week. And instead of driving all the way over to "our" bank, I just went to one that was nearby, accepted that I would be charged a transaction fee and knew that we could get it back later.
Maybe this isn't all that strange, but the ATM I went to didn't require me to leave my card in the slot while entering my PIN and choosing how much to withdraw. I just shoved it in and swiped it back out, like at the gas station). That's all fine and good, until you get your money (and receipt if you need one) and start to drive off.
But wait! Don't drive off yet because the next screen that pops up next asks
"Finished with this transaction? Push this button ----->
Not done yet? Push this button ----->".
You're still "logged in"!
In case you're thinking, "yea, that screen probably only stays up for about 2 seconds", don't be fooled my friends. The only reason I knew not to drive away after getting my cash (remember, I already had my card because you just shove it in and swipe it out - like at the gas station) was because that screen was showing when I pulled up behind the lady ahead of me.
So two things I learned today at this particular ATM:
1 - If I ever get cash from there again, make sure to push the button next to "Finished with this transaction?"!
2 - The video cameras that have on ATMs probably do come in handy quite often!
