One of the most annoying expenses that you’ll run into in Las Vegas are ATM fees. It’s almost as if the hotels, casinos, bars and clubs don’t want you to access your money with how high the fees can be. ATM fees in Las Vegas can be anywhere up to $9.99 at certain adult establishments. Casinos and hotels have a more respectable charge between $2 and $5.
Since most of us are locked into the hotels there’s little choice to get money at no charge if we need it. Thankfully there are a few options for lower cost ATM’s.

Free ATM’s on the Vegas Strip aren’t for everyone but if you use Bank of America you can find free ATM’s at the M&M’s Store and inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. BoA is one of the larger banks in America so this should be a good option for many people across the country.
