Convenience Fees for Credit Card Use
Cruz, I use them all the time. I pay my balance every month. There's just something really annoying about convenience fees or what ever they wish to call them. It's as if you're being punished for using your cards. Kinda like when your insurance company raises your rates because you need it.
I had AMEX 20 years ago and I made reservations at a Jersey shore hotel for one week using my card. When I arrived the manager told me I was being surcharged $40.00 for using my card instead of cash. When a friend told me they couldn't do that I called AMEX and they charged back the hotel the 40 bucks and I got an immediate refund.
Very well may be but in general I'll be comparison shopping for prices anyway and that's simplest if only the sales price needs to be considered without having to factor in additional fees on a per merchant basis. Of course restaurant comparisons are more subjective anyway for various reasons but can still be ball parked.
