Merchant Credit Card Fees
May be a bit off topic, but what's the deal with so many merchants requiring $5/$10 minimums to use credit cards. And charging an additional $.50c or $1 to use credit cards. I understand the merchant is receiving fees from the card companies, but wouldn't it be better to just reflect the fees in product pricing (those who use cash would say hell no, but don't the majority of consumers use credit/debit cards now?).
I remember hearing that this practice is illegal, but it seems that the large majority of merchants now implement such a policy.
