    Would you shop at a store that charges you more to use your debit/credit card than they charge if you pay with cash?

    Sure, if the cash price is lower than their competitors. Credit cards cost the vendor money with every purchase. However, I find that in most cases paying with cash is the same as using a credit card, so I use my CC.

    Probably not, I don't use cash any more (except for change).

    I would not buy anything from anywhere if there was a charge made for a Debit card.

    Only for gasoline for my car.  The price of goods, I believe, has already been adjusted for the cost of a customer using a credit card.

    They do it all the time in gas stations and even in places like dentists offices. Sometime , they'll let you write a check and treat it the same as cash. The reason they don't want credit or debit,is b/c they have to pay a fee for that. That's why you're paying more if you use credit or debit. You're paying for their fee.

    Well said Umbriel...in some cases the banks are charging a service fee for the use of the bank card already.

    Could that be why most places ask if it will be charge or cash before they even start to ring you up ?
