Apple Pay Now Available at Nearly 16,000 Cardless Chase ATMs

Chase, one of the major banks in the United States, today announced that customers can now use Apple Pay and other mobile wallet services at nearly all of the company's 16,000 ATMs, which have been upgraded with card-free access.

To access an ATM and withdraw money, customers no longer need a physical debit card or access code for authentication, with the contactless ATMs supporting a "tap" from a smartphone to use the ATM.


On its website, Chase walks users through the steps necessary to use the new ATM functionality.

For iPhone users, after adding a Chase card to the Wallet app on the iPhone, at an ATM, customers will need to open up the Wallet app, select the virtual Chase debit card and tap the iPhone on the "Cardless" symbol on the ATM, authenticating via Face ID or Touch ID.


A PIN code will need to be entered for verification purposes, so it's not quite as simple as a standard payment with Apple Pay, but it does prevent Chase card users from needing to pull out a physical card.

Chase says that cardless ATM access is available to all customers with a Chase debit or Liquid card that's been added to Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay. All Chase ATMs with the Cardless symbol support Apple Pay.

Chase first announced plans to update its ATMs with contactless money withdrawals in 2016, and has since then been rolling out the technology. Today's update suggests the rollout is nearly complete and available to most Chase customers.

Both Wells Fargo and Bank of America, Chase competitors, have also been rolling out card-free Apple Pay access to ATMs. Wells Fargo added Apple Pay support to over 5,000 ATMs last year, while Bank of America began implementing the feature in 2016.

I can't even remember the last time I used an ATM. If I get birthday money that small amount is more than enough to last me the entire year for cash only purchases.

We need to get you buying more weed.

I guess I'm not seeing an advantage here...


You can double tap power button on the iPhone X or double click the home button to bring up the wallet from the home screen. Doing this instant authenticates me as I do it.

What? You get Birthday money Macduke? Lucky.

Anyways. Completely agree. The only time I used an ATM is if I needed cash for a small purchase, otherwise Apple Pay (More specifically with the Apple Watch) is so convenient and has become a necessity in most applications.

The advantage is that you don't have to carry or babysit a card anymore. Your instructions are a bit biased towards the card though--I'd argue that carrying/retrieving a card that is located in a wallet that is possibly located in a bag has at least as many steps as using your iPhone.

My instructions for card use would look like this:

1) Take out bag to retrieve wallet
2) Remove card from wallet
3) Slide card into slot in ATM
4) Enter PIN
5) Conduct transaction
6) Remove card from slot in ATM
7) Replace card in wallet
8) Replace wallet in bag

And for anyone that uses an Apple Watch and has their Chase card set as the default payment, it's literally as easy as pressing the watch's side button twice and holding it to the pad. This is how I do all of my ApplePay transactions--there's no way it's easier to use a card.

Apple is on a roll with Apple Pay. I wish my bank would enable Apple Pay withdrawals.

Haha yeah all of my grandparents are still living so that's a thing. Lots of generational teenage births in my family led to this but fortunately I broke the tradition by waiting until 29.

As for Apple Pay I just wish it would expand even more. I get so used to using it everywhere on the college campus I work at (even vending machines which is bad for me!) but from what I can tell there are no grocery stores anywhere in the entire state that accept it along with a lot of random stores. It's like "Oh, there's a wireless icon. Nope don't work. Oh, I'll stick my chip in. Nope, it's not enabled. I guess I'll have to swipe. Oh let me turn it around I swiped it the wrong way. Oh, it didn't recognize it. Swipe again. Got it. Now I have to touch this disgusting display with my fingers and grab this pen and try to sign it. Oh the pen doesn't seem to be working. Oh, I'm holding it wrong? That's what Steve said. Ok, got it. I guess I'll shove this mile long receipt into my bag." HAVE A NICE DAY.

Cash? What's cache? :D

I frequent enough establishments that offer Apple Pay that I have no need for cash anymore. If they didn't, I'd just use a credit card I use solely for non-Apple Pay stores. I refuse to use my debit card because of my paranoia of thieves emptying out my $12 in the bank. The day I get a driver license I can add to my Wallet, then I'll be set.
