Durbin Amendment Quick Fix Not So Easy for Bank of America and other Big Banks

November 1, 2011

Over the past few months big banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America announced new debit card usage fees in an effort to offset the increased cost of interchange fees caused by the Durbin Amendment.  After significant customer concern, the big banks have decided to eliminate these new debit card fees.

“We have listened to our customers very closely over the last few weeks and recognize their concern with our proposed debit usage fee,” said David Darnell, co-chief operating officer of Bank of America in a statement. “Our customers’ voices are most important to us. As a result, we are not currently charging the fee and will not be moving forward with any additional plans to do so.”
