Tips, Trends and Tidbits

Want to save money on “foreign” ATM transactions?

We’ve all found ourselves out of town and out of cash.  The first thing we do, is look for an ATM.  Knowing, that any ATM that is not GTSB affiliated is considered a “foreign” ATM, and our transactions are subject to both surcharges and foreign ATM fees.  Then, we cringe at the thought of paying $4, $5, $6, or even more in ATM fees!  BUT…Did you know, that as a service to our ATM and Debit Card customers, GTSB has subscribed to SHAZAM’s Privileged Status® program? With SHAZAM’s Privileged Status® program, GTSB can offer our customers access to thousands of surcharge-free ATMs throughout the country! (Foreign ATM fees will still apply) Privileged Status ATMs are easy to find using SHAZAM’s Privileged Status ATM locator.

Find the Privileged Status ATM Locator on the “Contact” page on our website!  The website can be accessed by navigating to or by clicking “website” within the menu in the GTSB Mobile App.  If looking in the App, you will need to log in, and hit the 3 lines in the upper left-hand corner of your screen.  Select “Website” to be directed to our home page.  Tap the 3 lines on the upper left-hand corner, select “Contact”, then scroll down to the bottom and tap on the “Privileged Status ATM Locator” image.  Continue through the “leaving GTSB” notice and search your current city/state.  (If you need to extend the search radius, you can do so up to 50 miles.)  A map indicating Privileged Status ATM locations will appear, along with a listing of ATM’s and addresses.  Click on the word “Directions” next to your desired ATM.  Then select “Get Directions”.
