It could soon cost you more to shop with a credit card at some stores. As of this Sunday, Jan. 27, merchants who accept credit cards issued by Visa and MasterCard will be allowed to add a service charge to the purchase price.
They've been doing that here in Oz for years... adding fees to the purchase price when a credit card is used. F**k that, I'll never ever use a credit card... they cost enough to operate without more charges being added. Nope, it's cash only for me, and my debit card, which is like spending my own cash when I shop online, but electronically.
