Hooray, and about time too.
In a time where the move is towards a cashless society there should be no surcharge for the use of a card. The credit card companies already charge the card holder and are making billions out of them.
These surcharges are also applied to debit cards by some retailers. My local Chinese Takeaway hits me for a £1 on every debit card transaction.
I know that there is a cost to handling card transactions. How does that compare to the time and effort consumed during cash transactions which have the inevitable end of day cashing up and bank runs.
Next the retailers, if they can’t charge us for card usage, will begin charging us for handling cash.
One thought on “Not A Minute Too Soon”
Yeah it annoys the hell out of me that so many places charge us extra to use a card
