Access to Banco de Chile from Argentina

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Sat, 1 Oct 2011 18:40:55 -0300

We're visiting Mendoza, Argentina and have spent way too much time trying bank
after bank in an attempt to extract money from a cash machine using cards from
Banco de Chile.  Nothing works.  Including several banks listed on Banco de
Chile's own page as "associated banks".  The only one that looked remotely
hopeful was Citibank, which paused and then gave an error (the rest all have
the same canned message - that the bank is not allowing the transaction; this
seems to be a generic issue rather than related to one account as we tried two
unrelated accounts).

A Santander card does work (both at BBVA and Santander branches).

Banco popular

You may want to try Banco Popular, it usually worked for me even in the =
tiniest villages, as long as there was some cash left in the machine =
(another problem). My Banco de Chile card also yielded money at Citi =
Banc fine in NY. They even display my account balance, it was something =
like $345,762,382 an amazing amount and unfortunately unrelated to my =
real funds.

Finally we have a solution!  We couldn't find a Banco Popular but here in San
Juan (having moved today) there's a Banco Credicoop (La Banca Solidaria!) with
a "Link" sign instead of "Banelco".  And the Link cash machines work - you
just need to select the Cirrus network.

A quick search suggests that Link and Banelco merged, which might explain why
this is the first Link cash machine we've found.  But it's a disaster if all
the new "merged" Banelcos don't include Banco de Chile...
