Re: More Stores Requiring Minimum Purchase to Use Debit Cards

"Stores arent allowed to set a “minimum purchase” amount.Lauren Zeichner, an attorney with Consumer’s Union...says that by law, you’re allowed to charge any amount on your credit card - even a penny. Since retailers have to pay a fee on credit card transactions – they want you to spend more to offset that charge....You’re allowed to charge as little as you want, no matter what the store says. So if a retailer tells you otherwise, call your credit card company–they’ll want to know. (John Tesh)
