That Makes Cents: Hidden fees
Always check for maintenance fees on your bank accounts, some charge up to $25 dollars on checking accounts that don't meet certain requirements.
If you request copies of canceled checks, be ready, you may be charged between $3 and $10.
And international purchases can cost you an extra 3%.
Making a payment over the phone to save time? Be careful, some companies charge as much as $15 for that service.
And you may think all texts are equal, but sending a picture or video text could cost you an extra $.05 per message.
Remember, read the fine print and always check your monthly statements so you know what you're paying for.
Now that makes cents.
