This is such garbage, what business is it of hers what a private company charges its customers??? What about the cost of gas, milk, eggs and other household items, cars, vacation. Government, get out of private business, you are really screwing it up!!!
MJK, you're a socialist, far left wing liberal who rode into DC on a wave of government resentment. That wave has risen far & high and will sweep you back out in November. Thank gawd you and your family will have those wonderful congressional health benefits and retirement perks for the rest of your life.
Steve, January can't arrive soon enough!!!!!!!

I believe it was il advised for Kilroy to make promises on a vastly complicated subject.

My wife and I do not use debit cards, but have free checking at 53 Bank. Hopefully, Kilroy won't do something that will cost me a monthly checking account fee.

Because they have a monopoly and they use that monopoly to gouge customers.

I just quit doing my processing through Fifth-Third. They charge you $20 a month, plus another fee on top of that just to be able to take credit cards, plus an additional fee because I ran my transactions through the internet and didn't use a swiper.

But what really hurt was the percentage since my transactions are higher dollar ones. If you take a $1500 payment, it costs you roughly $45 to take that payment. Now tell me it costs $45 to run a payment through their computer. It is a hidden cost you pay for and it is especially painful if yoiu are in a low margin business like selling gasoline.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
