    Then why are all these nickel and dime merchants trying to charge a dollar extra for using a card for a ten dollar purchase?

    They don't do that around here, I guess that is the price you pay for living in suckerville.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    They are making a profit off it is also. I used to do that when I was an E-Merchant on Ebay. I would have a 30% markup on the shipping so I make a profit from that also. I was making money hand over fist selling Webkinz. Man I miss that ..

    In some states they can't.

    I've seen on restaurant with a label on their merchant machine that states they charge $1.50 for debit, even though I thought the fee could only be for credit. They might just be trying to keep everything "cash."
