AG Schuette issues alert warning of credit card charges
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Attention shoppers: you could be paying extra to swipe your credit card.
On Tuesday, State Attorney General Bill Schuette issued an alert advising consumers of changes in credit card surcharge rules.
Merchants are now allowed to charge a processing fee to cover their costs for credit card transactions, up to 4 percent of your purchase.
They're not required to charge the fee, however, and they have to post a notice if they plan to.
