My small business gets charged a 3.5% fee everytime someone uses a card whether it's credit or debit. I absorb that fee and it's illegal to charge more for using a credit/debit card over cash.
So I've decided to just up all the prices (cash or card) to cover that fee.

They do it here. The only problem with debit is they decuct more than purchase and then refund the rest a few days later. My bank told me to run debit cards as credit to avoid that but now it is a charge to use a credit card so i guess i will go back to cash.

My bank doesn't do that. I have never had a hold for more than the charge.

If you look at the pump some gas stations say they can authorize up to 75 or 100 dollars. They authorize that amount but in the next day or so will release what you didnt actually spend.

Only at hotels, gas stations, and car rental places.....I can't think of any other debit purchases that require a "deposit" type of withdrawl. Prepaying inside the gas station with a debit card will also eliminate their "deposit"

I haven't heard this. I know Dave Ramsey has always said to run your debit card as credit. You will get the protection from visa for anything fraudulant. I havn't listened to him in a few weeks on the radio though. I could have missed the news.

Closest thing to a credit card I have is my debit card.

I don't use those gas stations. \:\) If I am going to be traveling for weeks or shopping at several different stores, I get a prepaid debit card. If someone steals the number, they don't get much and have no access to my bank account.
