Recently, Wells Fargo introduced a button on its ATM interface that allows customers to set a monthly target amount for withdrawals. Each time they take money out, the system will tell them how close they are to that target.

If they exceed the amount, of course, they can still get the money. It's a tracking system, not a punitive system. Customers can see not only how much they've withdrawn in the current month, but they can get a 12-month average, as well. In a press release, bank officials state that Wells Fargo offers this service in the spirit of helping its customers succeed financially.
