1. Inconvenience customers. 2. ??? 3. Profit!

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at January 20, 2004 3:13 PM I withdrew $100 from an ATM today and was stunned to receive it in the form of two $50 bills. This is so massively inconvenient that I considered making future withdraws in $40 quantities. That's when it occurred to me that this may be exactly what they want me to do. It's my own bank's ATM, so I don't pay a fee - but anyone who does will also be driven towards smaller withdrawals by the threat of payment in inconvenient denominations. They will then be forced to withdraw more often, and therefore pay the fee more often. Bastards. Tags:
