Banks are Adding Debit Card Fees

A lot of banks are starting to charge debit card fees. Bank of America will start charging $5 per month in 2012. Chase and Wells Fargo are testing a $3 monthly fee in some states.

Are you willing to pay a monthly fee in order to use your debit card?

Short answer: No, and I will go back to checks or cash, if necessary. We do not pay for our checks.

no, and I don't use my debit card, only my credit card (except a few times a year at costco, so I can just use cash for that). I hate carrying cash, but I'd rather do that than pay fees.
