Tune in to this week’s installment of The Credit Line, hosted by Credit.com’s chairman and co-founder Adam Levin on Los Angeles’ KFWB 980 AM this Saturday, October 1, at 9 a.m. PST/Noon EST.
The show is co-hosted by L.A. radio personality Jeff Levy.
“Fee for All” Fees for Using Your Own Money
This week, Adam talks about the current trend by big banks to slash rewards and raise fees on debit cards. More people are dusting off their credit cards and keeping a tighter reign on their spending. Free checking accounts are going the way of the dinosaur. We have seen the birth of bundled products and services at banks as they try to increase their customer footprint while testing, and in some cases, significantly raising fees on checking accounts. People are beginning to flock to pre-paid debt cards. How’s that really working out for them?
Even if the simpler, easier to understand, less-than-fine print is becoming bigger, bolder and better placed, it means nothing if you don’t read it … and there is much to read in order to protect yourself.
