Do ATMs have a max withdrawal limit?

ATMs do have a max withdrawal limit and often, a bill withdraw limit. Your ATM withdrawal limit is typically smaller than your daily spending limit. Withdrawal limits are typically disclosed in your debit card agreement and may be increased by contacting your bank. ATM withdrawal limits protect you from card fraud and ATMs from running out of bills.

ATMs have a max withdrawal limit and usually, a bill withdraw limit. A max withdrawal limit places a restriction on how much cash you can withdraw. A bill withdraw limit places restrictions on how many bills can be withdrawn.

An ATM with a withdrawal limit of $1,000 means you can only withdraw up to $1k. The withdrawal limit protects from debit card fraud, where someone steals your credentials. You wouldn’t want someone draining your bank account because they have your card and PIN.

The bill withdraw limit prevents someone from withdrawing all the bills from the machine. ATMs have limited space to store cash and highly frequented ATMs can easily be depleted. The bill withdrawal limit ensures an adequate supply of bills for everyone.

Your debit card also comes with a daily spending limit which is different than a withdrawal limit. A bank may only allow you to withdraw $500 from an ATM, but spend $2k at a grocery store. People are more likely to spend money than use their card for withdrawals.

You might be limited on cash withdrawals depending on your available balance. An ATM might have a withdrawal limit of $1,000. However, your available balance might be $900 and your unavailable balance might be $1,100. Your bank only lets you withdraw from the available balance.

Where can you withdraw more cash?

Besides an ATM, you can withdraw more cash in one day by visiting your bank, asking for cash back at stores, or cashing a check. You should be aware that your debit card also has a daily spending limit, which can limit cash withdrawal. Visiting your bank is the best place to withdraw large amounts of cash.

Visit your bank

Large cash withdrawals are best done at your bank. Your bank allows you to withdraw as much cash as you want. Keep in mind, cash withdrawals over $10,000 are reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Banks may also have a minimum deposit (e.g. $5) and may charge a fee for balances dropping below the minimum.

Cash back at stores

Most grocery stores have an ATM on location. You can make a purchase and ask for cash back if you’re unable to get enough cash from an ATM. Obviously, you’re going to have to buy something to receive cash back so it’s not a free withdrawal.

Cash a check

Alternatively, you can write a check to yourself and cash it. Most grocery stores have a service department that can cash a check for you. However, check cashing can come with costly fees and should be your last resort.
