Here’s an interview with the Vice President of the Wells Fargo ATM Banking Division regarding the ATMs at McMurdo:
DP: Right. One other thing I wanted to correct something I said earlier, when you asked the question–you didn’t have a Wells Fargo account and how much would it cost you….and actually, there is no surcharge at those ATMs. Raytheon who owns the stuff going on down there at McMurdo Station didn’t want to charge their employees for that, and so we took that into consideration when we do our analysis as far as financials, so they’re actually making up that difference for them.
W: Oh, well, so one gets a better deal on using the ATM at the end of the world than down the street.
DP: Yeah, because anybody who’s using it there are employees.
