using debit cards for cash back on STJ?
Good afternoon, everyone --
Here in Virginia, I've become accustomed to getting cash back at the grocery store or drugstore -- so I don't have to deal with going to the ATM. I will be on island for 3.5 months this fall and would rather avoid paying ATM surcharges when I need to get cash. (I usually use my Visa card for most transactions anyway, but obviously not everyone accepts plastic.)
Are there any stores on STJ where you can get cash back when you use your debit card? If not on STJ, what about on STT?
Trade, thanks -- in fact, my debit card works as an ATM card. But since my bank isn't local, and I don't want to open a local account for just 3.5 months based on reviews of local banking, I'm looking for a way around paying ATM surcharges ($2.50 to $3 a pop, ouch!) every time I get cash.
Puddlejumper, I've seen you post about HSBC before -- I may have to look into that option. Thanks!
Appreciate the insights, everyone!
