I have seen a sign saying "All prices reflect 3% cash discount". This is mainly at a big gun store and such around here in GA. There is one store in particular that charges 3% more for credit cards on every item. If you go in and buy a 5 dollar bottle of Breakfree they add 3% more plus the sales tax on the subtotal. I don't shop there prices way to high attitudes way to bad and intelligence way to lacking. |
There is another store down the road from them that uses the no "Credit Card fee's" slogan and is making good money, I know the owner cool guy reminds me of John Goodman.
Old guy I deal with now is the kitchen table type, had card machine for a little over a year and it became such a hassle he stopped using it. He stated he was charged 6% per swipe. He has a 120 day layaway now. I really like dealing with him. Open Sunday evenings
I can't find it in the article, but was this class action lawsuit?
If so I doubt they people really affected by this will see a dime of that money or benefit from it.
