    Usually £20, but if money is short then it's a tenner - or nothing at all!
    just passing through.... Nothing to see....
  • £200.

    I couldn't be bothered going to the cashpoint every day to be honest.

    Since I got ripped off by an ATM in Stansted six years ago, I've stopped using them.

    I can't understand why people bother taking out less than £50 from a cash machine.

    Strange poll..... what about how often you take the amount out?

    I take out about £50 every couple of months, hardly use cash anymore.
    Some days you're the dog..... most days you're the tree! :D
  • Normally £20-50, depending on what it's for (if I am in London for the weekend for example I'll get £50 to tide me through, if it's for the bus home then just a tenner).

    Loose = the opposite of tight (eg "These trousers feel a little loose")
    Lose = the opposite of find/gain (eg "I'm going to lose weight this year")

    Usually about £250 twice a month.
  • I have to go into town to use one so I'll withdraw £200 which saves me making a special trip and that does me for cash needs. The length of time it lasts varies as it depends what I need cash for - to cash pay a bill at the post office or pick up a small item while I'm in town for example but that amount might last two months.

    I take out £80 each week as I no longer use my cards for day to day purchases. That way I know exactly how much money I have left to spend for the week. That weekly budget includes everything that isn't direct debited / standing ordered.

    £17,700 / £20,000
  • Usually £60 lasts me a fortnight.
