EVERYONE is paying more to cover the fee for those whose convenience is worth more to them than their money or privacy.
Yes, I said this originally.
We are all paying more. But since at each INDIVIDUAL purchase, RIGHT NOW, I am paying the exact same price whether I pay via credit card or cash, I will take the one that is cheaper (later) for me, AND more convenient, credit card.
In fact, today I paid with cash for something for the first time in a long time (except quarters in pinball machines), since it was so much less than a dollar I felt sheepish paying by credit card. (Was using up CVS rewards they gave me.. Not the rewards bucks, they just gave me $2 off grocery, no minimum requirement.)
