In case this hasn't be posted, or you haven't yet heard, one large bank has made a very bold move. As of yesterday, they have announced that they will no longer nickel and dime consumers for ATM fees.

Whether you use Washington Mutual bank ATMS, or any other bank's ATM, Washington Mutual will no longer charge any fees whatsoever for using the ATM. Bravo to Washington Mutual (which happens to be this Fool's bank, coincidentally).

Keep in mind that if you belong to any other bank, you will still be charged a fee by your bank, even if you take cash from a WM ATM. In your case, the only change is that you're not being charged from both banks, just yours (if your bank happens to charge a fee).
But Washington Mutual Bank customers would have no fee at all, as these customers are using their own bank's ATM only.

Hope I've explained this clearly. :-)

...but I still am...
