How can I avoid paying ATM Operator Fees?

These four tips can help you avoid paying ATM operator fees:

1. Withdraw cash or check your EveryDay Transaction Account balance at ME Bank, Westpac, St.George, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA ATMs. There are more than 3,000 ATMs to choose from nationally. Alternatively, receive a refund on fees incurred at all other ATMS in Australia within 30 days of the transaction.

2. Take out extra cash when using EFTPOS to make your purchases. These transactions are excluded from the ATM operator fee.

3. Check your account balance using ME Bank's fee free phone and internet banking services.

4. Use ME Bank's internet banking to transfer money and pay your bills.

Why isn't my new Debit MasterCard working?

Before you can use your Debit MasterCard, you'll need to activate it first. Call ME Bank on 13 15 63 to activate.

What do I do if my ME Bank Debit MasterCard is lost or stolen?

If your card is lost or stolen whilst you are in Australia, simply phone ME Bank's Customer Contact Centre on 13 15 63. ME Bank will cancel your existing card and arrange for a replacement to be sent to you.
If you are overseas when your card is lost or stolen, you may contact MasterCard Global Service or any financial institution displaying the MasterCard symbol to cancel your existing card and arrange for a replacement card to be sent to you.

How is a Debit MasterCard card different to an EFTPOS card?

A Debit MasterCard is just like a credit card, but only better because it uses your own funds from your EveryDay Transaction Account. You can use it anywhere MasterCard is accepted - just press 'Credit' when using the 'terminal' and you are protected from unauthorised transactions at more than 30 million locations worldwide. Terms and conditions apply

What is MasterCard PayPass&trade Tap & Go&trade?

Debit MasterCard with PayPass&trade is like having the exact change wherever you go. Just 'tap' your card on the PayPass reader and 'go' as soon as you see the green light or hear the beep. There's no signing your name or entering a PIN for purchases of $100 or less

Can I withdraw money using MasterCard PayPass&trade?

No. To withdraw cash when you make a purchase you will need to swipe or insert your card into the EFTPOS terminal, choose 'SAV' (Savings) or 'CRE' (Credit) and enter your PIN. By choosing Credit, you get the added bonus of MasterCard's security features.

How do I receive my 5% back on PayPass™ purchases?

Your 5% cash back will be paid into your ME Bank Everyday Transaction Account within 30 days after the date the transaction is debited to your account.

Why have I received an email about an EveryDay Transaction Account with ME Bank?

There are two possible reasons you have received this email:

1. You have made the fantastic decision to switch from your old Co-op card to the new Co-op Membership card, but have not yet completed your application for the ME Bank Everyday Transaction Account. Remember, once your account is open you will get a $25 Co-op voucher, a $50 STA Travel voucher, refund on ATM fees, and 5% cash back on tap & go™ purchases for the first three months.

2. When you joined the Co-op, you had the option to 'opt out' of starting an application for a ME Bank Everyday Transaction Account. Therefore, you are receiving these emails because you did not opt out. Please contact ME Bank on 13 15 63 if you wish to opt out and become a standard Co-op Member with no ME Bank account.
