WSJ: At Banks, New Fees Replacing Old Levies

Wednesday, January 5, 2011 - 6:03 AM
From the Wall Street Journal:
Banks, in an attempt to wring more revenue out of customer accounts, are conjuring up new ways to raise fees on basic products like debit cards, cash machines and checking accounts.

Even with the new regulations, it’s interesting to see that banks are reportedly planning fees for debit cards such as annual fees. Also, they’re considering limits on the number and size of debit card purchases. That’s opposite of the way it is now.

One bank I use has instituted a fee for using deposit and withdrawal slips that are not pre-printed with your account number, your name. etc.. Like it takes a lot of work for the teller to type-in you account number!
