ATMs in Central Portland

Sigh. I get comfortable with the idea that, maybe, some banks aren't evil, and then I find out that they're charging surcharges. Why can't you make up your mind, Washington Mutual?

And then, there's the whole "being a credit union member" and going to a different credit unions' machine, and being charged a surcharge. Dude, aren't we on the same team?

Well, I guess not.

Oregonians still have no laws in place to protect ATM users from fees, and for good or bad, private ATM machines are just about everywhere -- in convenience stores, bars, restaurants, and even food co-ops. So, what about fees? If you're a credit union member, credit union ATMs are still the way to go, though you may still face a fee. If you're a bank customer, well, you're on your own...

So we've listed some credit union ATMS.

Thanks to Kristi, Jim, James and Steve who contributed listings, and to Sonya for letting me know about Washington Mutual.
