At least they're thinking in the long term about something, it's rare that companies do that

The long term they are thinking about is their pockets. They get a cut of everything. Use your card and pay it off every month you are fine except for the fact they charge the merchant around 3% of the privilege of you using their card, and of course the merchant passes that on right to you. So you pay anyway.

Every time I go to cash my check the teller always tries to sell me an account. My employer banks there but I dont care to. The teller warns of an 8 dollar fee whenever I cash my check if I dont get an acct and gives a few more pitches before finally taking the hint. In the end, I've never been charged the $8! Its just a scare tactic or something but its annoying that its a near a battle just to cash a check at a bank. I dont understand why that is treated as strange.

They are the digital financial highwaymen. Pay the toll or heads will roll.

No small business will willing convert to cashless. Too lucrative dealing in cash fudging the numbers for the taxman
