[UPDATED: Monday, Jan. 28, 11:10 a.m.]
New Jersey residents using credit cards to pay for purchases may be digging a bit deeper into their wallets beginning Sunday, according to a report on CBSlocal.com.
The report says retailers may start adding an additional fee of up to 4 percent if a credit card is used to pay for a purchase.
WINS’ Glenn Schuck reported reaction to the new fee was swift and angry.
According to a report from 7online.com, stores must prominently display signs saying they are charging customers for using a credit card. Debit cards are not affected by these new measures.
ABC News is also reporting retailers WalMart and Home Depot have announced they will not take part in charging the additional fees.
