Ding Free Day - June 21 2017

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. 

Credit unions across the country are celebrating ding free status and raising awareness of this benefit with members and non-members. The surcharge for using another institution’s ATM can be up to $4, which can add up quickly.
Download the ding free® app to locate the nearest ding free ATM here, and look for the ding free ATM decals on participating ATMs. Learn more at
