Ambassadors for Credit Union Central of Canada are in front of downtown banks handing out twoonies to demonstrate the cost of a typical ATM surcharge.
Central One Credit Union Spokesperson Art Chamberlain says ‘Ding Free Day’ is a national campaign meant to show how Canadian’s can avoid getting dinged by their bank.
“We have a very large network of ATM’s that credit union members can use without paying an extra surcharge,” said Chamberlain. “Those machines are ding free.”
Haligonians were happily taking the toonies from the campaign.
A total of $25,000 is being given out today across the country.
