I realize that the topic of ATMs has been done to death, but I've read all the
messages here, *and* in dejanews, and I'm still not clear on one concept.
European ATMs only access your "Primary" account. That much I understand,
and the consensus seems to be that that is the case.
However, some posts indicate that for things to work, you MUST have a checking
account as your Primary Account.
Yet, " Fitz-Gerald Mob " indicates that the only card that worked for him was
his daughter's card, which was linked to a _Savings_ account.
Is there any consensus possible about which of the above two statements is correct?
Personally, I have one card, with 2 accounts on it. Not sure which is
'Primary' yet. In a perfect world, I'd rather have the Savings Account as the
Primary account (as there are withdrawal fees on the Checking account after
the first two in every month), but not if that mean that the card won't work
at all if it's set up that way!
(I suppose the solution is to make sure that there's lot's of money in *both*
accounts, and take my chances as to which one I end up accessing, assuming the
card works at all should the Savings account be the "Primary" account.
