Fees for Cash Accounts

No account fees for Cash Accounts

There are no fees for the Cash Account, but there may be a few fees for the Wealthfront debit card.

Fees for debit cards

This is the complete list of fees. You can find no-fee ATMs with our ATM Finder.

Fee Amount
In-network ATM Free
Out-of-network ATM $2.50 + ATM owner fee (varies)
Bank teller $2.50 + teller fee (varies)
International transaction fee 2.75%
Cash deposits at select retailers Up to $5.95

For descriptions of each of these fees, please see below, or check out the Deposit Account Agreement.

Do you reimburse out-of-network ATM fees?

No, we do not reimburse out-of-network ATM fees.

As a note, we don’t make money off these fees. This helps us pass along as much interest as possible to you.

How do I find no-fee ATMs?

Please use our ATM Finder on our website or in our app for iOS or Android. All ATMs that show up on this tool are free to use. Learn more about no-fee ATMs.

Out-of-network ATM and bank teller fees

If you get cash from an out-of-network ATM or any bank branch, you’ll pay fees. You’ll be charged an ATM owner or a teller fee at the time of the withdrawal. The $2.50 fee will show up as a separate transaction.

To avoid these fees, please use a no-fee ATM

International transaction fees

If the merchant or ATM is located outside the U.S., you’ll pay an international transaction fee of 2.75%. This happens even if the international purchase or ATM withdrawal is in U.S. dollars, or if you make the international purchase remotely from the U.S.

Cash deposits at select retailers

At select retailers, you can use your debit card to deposit cash up to $3,000 per day. Ask your retailer if they accept cash loads — if they do, you’ll pay a fee of up to $5.95.

Wire transfer charge

Wire transfers are free to send! 

The receiving institution may charge a fee to receive a wire. Contact your receiving institution to determine if an incoming wire fee will apply.
