So starting today retailers are allowed to tack on a 4% surcharge fee to your bill if you choose to pay with a credit card. Now this fee is avoidable if you use a debit card. There are 10 states that actually have laws prohibiting these charges… sadly we here in Pennsylvania is not one of them. So congrats California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Oklahoma and Texas.
However it is rare that retailers will add these charges seeing how it will probably drive away business. Who wants to shop somewhere were there gonna charge you way to much just for wanting to use a credit card?
Anyway you can find out more information about this in Time Magazines article here: http://business.time.com/2013/01/25/a-4-surcharge-for-using-a-credit-card-legal-but-not-likely/
So awhile back I wrote an article on the Auroa shooter James Holmes. You can see it here. Now we are used to getting spam here at project flipside for example….
