Earlier this week, Verizon announced that it would start charging customers a $2 fee for paying their bill with a debit card either online or over the phone. Naturally, this caused a huge uproar among customers -- sure, it's only a couple bucks, but it's the principal of the thing. Charging customer to pay their bill? The very idea doesn't make sense. It's just whack.
So, after enormous customer backlash, guess what Verizon did? Changed its mind. The $2 fee was killed before it even started. Good call on Verizon's part, for sure -- but the real credit goes to everyone out there who decided to raise a voice a put a fist in the air.
