Credit card purchases may cost you more at the register

Retailers may not add “checkout” fees for credit card users in 40 states within the United States. These “checkout fees” can be up to four percent of the purchase price for goods and services. While seven states have ruled the credit card fees to be illegal, forty of the states are allowing retailers the discretion of adding this fee to the total bill. The fee must be disclosed to the consumer. The fee is a result of an anti-trust settlement.
