CLEVELAND - There is a lot of debate about "checkout fees" or a surcharge if you use a credit card for a purchase.
Stores will be allowed to do this starting Sunday, but the National Retail Federation says it's just credit card propaganda and it's unlikely consumers will be hit with the fees. In the weekly money-saving segment, Joe Daugirdas aka Joe the Coupon Guy discussed the issue.
Daugirdas said he thinks it would turn customers away from a business if there was a fee to use credit. Many consumers use credit to earn rewards points.
