Maybe even less fee’s for them to pay. But I think the tide has turned for banks. They are being squeezed to stop risky investments and loans and they are now turning to fee’s to make up that difference. Frankly, their is not much people can do but shop around for a bank who offers less fee’s. People are probably better off using debit cards more wisely and using credit cards and private store cards for purchases. Many offer cash back,or discounts.
This is probably a unpopular opinion but I do not blame banks for the fee’s. People don’t save like they used too. Banks are more of a money transfer service. Money goes in,money goes out. Where is their perk in paying people for you? Since banks do not pay anyone decent interest on savings anymore thanks to Ben Bernanke virtually eliminating the rates. Who really wants to use the banks for anything but a money transfer service?

Wow, that says alot about how foolish the average consumer is. Great propaganda for the financial industry though.
