Ding Free Day - June 20 2018

Mountain View Financial celebrates national ding free® day and all the money our members save on ATM surcharges. You can save your share of up to $32 million this year, by taking advantage of thousands of ding free ATMs across the country where you can withdraw cash without paying a surcharge.
