First National Bank of Omaha Partners with Cardtronics to Expand Surcharge-free ATM Access

146 ATMs in retailers across six states to display FNBO brand

HOUSTON, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First National Bank of Omaha, a subsidiary of First National of Nebraska, has increased convenience for its customers and improved its core market physical presence through a new ATM branding partnership with Cardtronics. This expanded partnership will see First National Bank of Omaha’s branded ATM presence grow by over 150 percent.

In its agreement with Cardtronics, First National Bank of Omaha added 146 ATMs to the 255 ATMs already owned by the bank. The branded ATMs located in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas are owned and operated by Cardtronics and will be fully FNBO branded, significantly and visibly increasing brand awareness in these markets while also providing fee-free access for FNBO cardholders. The ATMs are located in convenient, well-known retail outlets including CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens, Loaf ‘N Jug and Kwikshop.

In addition to the 146 Cardtronics ATMs on which FNBO is placing its brand, through a previous and separate agreement, the bank has also dramatically increased value for its cardholders by offering surcharge-free cash access for its cardholders by joining Cardtronics’ Allpoint Network. The Allpoint Network is the world’s largest surcharge-free ATM network providing free cash access at 55,000 ATMs located throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as well as the United Kingdom and Australia.

“In today’s digitally evolving marketplace, we strive to deliver convenient banking solutions for our customers,” said Jerry O’Flanagan, executive vice president, Consumer Banking Group at First National Bank. “Cardtronics’ ATM Branding and access to the Allpoint Network helps us to provide fee-free ATM service to our customers, while making cash access a simplified, seamless experience.”

“The combination of ATM branding and Allpoint Network access strengthens FNBO brand visibility in key markets while providing cardholders the broad surcharge-free ATM access they demand,” stated Brian Bailey, managing director North America at Cardtronics.
