Bank Of America Dropping Plan For $5 Monthly Debit-Card Fee
Bank of America just confirmed that it is dropping a plan to charge many of its debit-card customers $5 a month if they use them to make purchases.
"We have listened to our customers very closely over the last few weeks and recognize their concern with our proposed debit usage fee," David Darnell, co-chief operating officer, says in the statement BofA just issued. "Our customers' voices are most important to us. As a result, we are not currently charging the fee and will not be moving forward with any additional plans to do so."
Last week, JPMorgan Chase & Co. said it was dropping plans for a $3-a-month pilot project. Other banks, including U.S. Bancorp, Citigroup Inc., PNC Financial Services Group Inc. and KeyCorp, also decided not to try to impose such charges.
