An ATM in Barrington mall when use it ANZ only offers fast cash.


I have a BNZ credit card, which I can access SAV, and CHQ on.


Problem is if I use fast cash at ATM, it comes off credit card as cash advance. So I need to be able to select the account money to come from, which fast cash does not allow.


I got caught out by it once and as a goodwill jester BNZ refunded interest and fees charged. I also asked if fast cash could have money come out of a bank account by default, which I got told cannot be done with the credit card.


With ANZ only allowing fast cash it makes a mockery of being able to use other banks ATM’s as I’m going to get strung heavily for using it.


I don’t know if it’s only the Barrington Mall one set up that way?, as if it’s just that one, then there are BNZ ones in same area, that do let me pick account money to come from when using credit card.




If they are all that way, then either I can’t use ANZ machines, or else as well as carrying credit card, will need to carry EFT POS card as well, just seems crazy to me that Fast Cash is only option that I can see.

So - I've needed to withdraw some cash with my Westpac EFTPOS-Creditcard and found the following... 


With Westpac ATM, after PIN entry... option to Withdraw cash or use fast cash: 



With an ANZ ATM - same card:


Initial thoughts when I saw this- fast cash is the only option but to get the Cheque, Savings or Credit option... you need to key in the amount you wish to withdraw  and press enter without navigating to one of the menus.
It makes sense when you read it a second time, but I can easily see how it can be confusing when I'm used to clicking 'Withdraw Cash' on most other ATM's.
