Using your credit card in New Jersey could cost you an additional 4% checkout fee, as of yesterday. New Jersey is no longer from the states which ban the extra charge on purchases.
The surcharge which could now be passed on to the consumer, stems from the surcharge retailers are charged for credit card purchases.
The fee only applies to credit cards.
The added surcharge is still illegal in New York and other states. TLS.-------------
