Have you ever looked at a bill or a receipt and thought, “15 cents for what? What’s a landing fee? A $2.95 convenience fee? Why?”
We asked you for photos of your crazy transaction fees or charges, and you sent us some great ones. Los Angeles Times consumer columnist David Lazarus joined us to dig into your receipts and tell us why we pay these fees.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
