Bank Star, Pacific, has joined Allpoint Network, which means customers now have access to America’s largest surcharge-free ATM network with some 55,000 surcharge-free ATMs worldwide.

For Bank Star customers, all foreign fees have been waived on Allpoint ATMs as well, creating truly fee-free access to customers.

In addition to Bank Star’s drive-up ATM, with the Allpoint Network, Bank Star customers will never be faraway from fee-free access to cash, especially in the United States where Allpoint offers 43,000 cash machines in places they’re already visiting as part of their daily routine.

Located in destination retail outlets, including major discount retailers, convenience, grocery and pharmacy stores, Allpoint Network ATMs save customers of Bank Star time as well as ATM fees.

“By becoming an Allpoint Network member financial institution, in an instant Bank Star grows its ATM footprint to more than double that of even America’s largest bank,” said Bank Star President Al Baldwin.

“People want a financial services provider that delivers the most convenient account access and management options, and includes cash access,” he said. “With Allpoint Network fee-free ATMs, Bank Star can meet our customers cash access needs in a way that works best for them — in the conveniently located stores that are already part of their lives.”

Bank Star customers looking for the nearest fee-free Allpoint ATM — including 12,000 locations in Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, Australia — can do so with their smartphone using the free Allpoint Network ATM locator app, and once at the store hosting an Allpoint ATM, look for the green Allpoint logo.

Bank Star is a subsidiary of the St. Louis-based BancStar Inc., a bank holding company with five branches and nearly $200 million in assets. In addition to Bank Star in Pacific, the company has four branches under the Bank Star One charter in Lake Ozark, Fulton, New Bloomfield and Osage Beach (inside Hy-Vee).
