One, a leader in providing services to higher education
administrators and students at more than 1,250 campuses across the U.S.,
announces a new partnership with Allpoint
Network, a Cardtronics,
Inc. affiliate, to allow OneAccount Premier cardholders to have free
ATM access, nationwide, at 38,000 Allpoint® ATMs.
This move comes in an effort to further expand Higher One's national ATM
network and will allow OneAccount Premier cardholders to conduct
standard ATM transactions, including withdrawals and statement balance
inquiries, free of charge at any Allpoint Network ATM in the United
"We have been working on this massive effort for some time and are very
pleased to kick off 2013 with a significant enhancement to our banking
services for our customers," said Miles Lasater, COO, who co-founded
Higher One on a college campus in 2000. "Each college or university with
whom we partner is already set up with an ATM or several ATMs, but
aligning with Allpoint Network allows our Premier customers to gain free
ATM access in many more places off campus, including within many
retailers already part of their daily routine."
College students enrolled at the more than 600 institutions partnered
with Higher One nationwide are eligible for the OneAccount Premier
checking account, regardless of credit history or financial background.
