Worried about 220 baht.

What does your bank charge for the forex conversion?

If zero, count yourself lucky and stuff up the fee.

Banks don't do freebies anymore.

I use three different Aeon ATM's in Chiang Mai and they all charge 150, including a brand new machine at one outlet only installed two weeks ago.  No problem with limits either, the only limit set is by my own British bank.

As noted, it has been January of this year that I had stopped using Aeon for the fact can't get the large amount.  It wasn't my card like the other guy who said my reason was B.S. this was what I was told by the HQ by phone in Bangkok that the new machine have been program not to provide foreign cards debit with larger than 5000-8000 baht one of those cards is Charles Schwab.  Since then I tried it once and got 5000 and when I went again 10,000 the card was returned.

Based on what is being said I will give it a try tomorrow and see what happens if it does provide the amount I request then I would assume the policy was changed due to complaints which I was one of them? I like Aeon been using their ATM for near 10 years, fee is lower, exchange rate is good hope it works tomorrow.

January, I wanted also to open a account and told them I wanted to transfer 10 million baht into their bank was told can't we aren't a bank we are a lending institution? 

Thanks

Are you saying there are no fees to withdraw Baht using a Mastercard at their ATMs? I use a UK credit card that only charges interest on cash withdrawals in other countries

Yes.

Charles schwab high yield investor checking account

 

unlimited ATM fee rebates worldwide.

 

imhave it and use it in Thailand.  End of month ATM fees get credited back to account.  Was 15 USD in October for me.

 

probably for american only, but not sure...

My Pension and Social Security payments are direct deposited to Citibank US Priority account, no transaction fees no ATM fees at Citi ATM's worldwide 

drawbacks, limited number of ATM's in Thailand, plus requires a significant min balance or $30 monthly fee. (I was spending over $50 a month in foreign transaction fees every month) 

I will take ฿35,000 ATM withdrawals and deposit to my Krungsri account.

When I first arrived it was less than ฿200 ATM fee, then it went up to ฿200 now ฿220? The dollar exch rate drops and fees go up. Seems like it started 22 Jan 2017. Hmmmm

I have a Thai friend working for an American Company here but is paid to a prepaid MC debit card. She went to SCB to withdraw cash, and the system had an error. Her ฿65,000 was tied up for 5 weeks for the authorization to drop off.

I calculated it used to cost me about $40 to withdraw about $500 AUD from any ATM here.  That included the fee charged by my Oz bank, conversion to baht and ATM fee.  I started using Transfer Wise, opened an account (Kasikorn) and got a debit card.  Now the only charge is for transfer from Oz to my Thai account which is less than $10 for my pension.  Transfer Wise gives the market rate for exchange.  If my card is used away from the local area there is a 15 baht charge.

I did have a problem opening a local account until I told them I had to have money in a Thai bank to apply for an extension (as advised by the local IO). 

So if you are here to stay open an account and get a card.

I'm making my final statement regarding Aeon.  Another posted didn't agree with my experience so he said it was B.S. here it is a cowardly way of saying a person is a liar. I don't think anyone comes on to a forum give their experience in this case with Aeon clerks as witnesses then post because they want to lie.

Based, on a number of poster recent experiences with Aeon it had me curious so as noted I would make a attempt to withdraw money today from Aeon hoping that things have changed.

So in Pattaya, just 30 minutes ago, I put my card in, ask for 16,000 baht, it has been 10 months since I use Aeon and the fact is the fee is only 150 baht, I proceeded with the transaction and the Big difference from 10 months is instead of my card being split out after a few minutes and a response " system is down " it said PICK UP YOUR CASH!

I can't be anymore happier that I can now use Aeon again for a number of reason and that is thanks to this forum and the exchange of responses with a number of others who can read and post as adults instead of a particular individual who calls your experience B.S. because it isn't what they want to hear or have no mental ability to express themselves as a adult.

Thanks

If you have a Nationwide Gold Classic or Select credit card, you should be able to take a cash advance over the counter at no extra charge.

 

Otherwise, you are a bit stuck. You cannot even use Bank of China ATM, as they might not work with VISA debit cards ans unless you have a FlexPlus account or have access to the FlexOne account, your debit card will have separate and additional charges.
