I'll Come Back to RBC For This - ATM Custom Mixed Bills Withdrawal

I'm not sure how new this is, but today I went to my local RBC to make a cash withdrawal, and here is what I saw:

Customized mixed bills!
How new is this? Do any other banks have it? I haven't seen it before, though I admittedly do not use every bank.

Getting $20 or $50 all the time is not convenient, so I'm loving it.
This is something I think that is a real benefit and convenience, and I wish it had been implemented a long time ago.

TD has this for quite a while, love selecting the bills I get instead of mix of $20 and $50. Also allows withdraws of odd amounts, like say, $45, exactly.

Haven’t seen this at RBC, have to try now!..

OK Thanks, so I guess they are just following the competition and I was ignorant it had come to other banks first.
This was the first time I had seen it. I don't like TD though so I haven't used their ATMs in ages.

^ is right, from what I know, TD is the first one to have it.

Cool that RBC/CIBC has it now also, benefits us all.

I remember when I was younger us kids all had RBC account because the minimum withdrawal was $5. Looks like them days have re-appeared and I might have to start putting more money into the RBC account...
Why can't we all just get along?

Nice! No more going to the teller when I need specific denominations!

I haven't seen a Scotia ATM have this. Scotia will probably be last of the Big 5 banks, and HSBC and Canadian credit unions will bring up the rear of all financial institutions, @Shawguy. Kind of ironic since CUs basically invented the ATM yet they're among the last to implement innovations.

Not surprising. RBC and CIBC basically use all the same ATMs and software, just customized for each. Although I like RBC's implementation better in this case.

Scotia has had this for at least 2 years. Not all branches mind you.

CIBC and BNS have their own variation of this, but I agree RBC's offering is best, with more denominations.

My local RBC branch with the new ATMs still only has $20 and $50 as the options.

My bank is RBC and they always seem to be the last to accept new technology`s. It took them forever for the phone check cashing feature.

Scotia does have this too. I used it a few weeks ago with my Tangerine card at the Danforth/Woodbine branch.

None probably west of Ontario, or at least those outside of the major urban centres (less than 250,000 population) west of Ontario, I'd say.

RBC was still one of the first to offer totally free Interac EMT.

Yes, I have seen it also.
The new options at the banks are not all the same.
e.g. CIBC/Simplii gives you 4 options to pick from, they are not always what you want (e.g. 220 will be $50x2, $20x6, etc... but no $100x2, $20x2).
However Scotia (and from the above screenshot, RBC): offer a more functional menu to choose the exact breakdown on cash denominations. This is awesome! :)
