Cardtronics (NASDAQ: CATM), the world's largest retail ATM owner, today announced that San Antonio-based USAA Federal Savings Bank (FSB) has reached an ATM branding agreement with the company.
As a result, 189 Cardtronics-owned and operated ATMs in the metro Washington, D.C. area now feature the USAA brand and offer fee-free cash access to USAA members. USAA, a leading provider of financial services for military families, provides banking, insurance, investment and retirement products and services to more than 8 million members.
All 189 Cardtronics-owned/USAA-branded ATMs are located in the Washington, D.C. area (Washington, D.C. proper, northern Virginia and southern Maryland) CVS/pharmacy locations.
