(WTVG) - Many people rely on cash back at the register to get the cash they need without racking up ATM fees. Grocery chain, Kroger, is now offering those customers a way of receiving that cash in larger dollar amounts, but they'll no longer be able to get that cash without a fee.

Customers will now be able to receive up to $300 in cashback on purchases made with a debit card. Amounts between $1 and $100 will be charged a fee of 50 cents. Amounts between $101 and $300 will be charged a fee of $3.50, that's according to signage seen at the registers and posted to social media.

The first 50 cents will be waived for Kroger Plus members, according to the company's Twitter account.

Kroger has received backlash from customers for the move, but the company maintains that the new service will allow customers access to more of their money at a rate that is still lower than using an ATM with fees.
