My bank just sent me an email that says they are going to start charging me for using my debit card. If I use the debit card at an atm, that is still free. But if I use the debit card to pay for food, or shopping, or gas or anything like that then I have to pay them $6 a month for non atm use.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I did not get the debit card to use at atm machines. I got it to pay for gas and other purchases instead of having to write a check. In fact, some places will not take a check any more. You have to pay cash or use a card – no more checks. So that is totally not fair and I am really pissed off about it.
