BofA dropped the debit fee!

Your voice was heard! Bank of America announced that it will not charge its proposed $5 monthly debit fee.

So, stop and give yourself a pat on the back.

Help us pre-empt new fees with a quick “Thank you” message to Bank of America’s CEO — “Thank you for dropping this fee, but don’t plan on gouging me in a different way for holding my money for me.”
