Analyst: Redbox Can Up Daily Rental Fee 25%

Quote:
With credit card companies possibly upping fees for smaller transactions next month, an analyst says Redbox should up its $1 daily rate

Redbox should increase the daily $1 DVD rental fee to $1.25 to offset probable higher fees credit card companies may charge retailers for debit card transactions below $10, an analyst said.

Redbox currently pays about 5 cents per debt card transaction an amount that could increase to 22 cents per transaction, according to Eric Wold, research director with Merriman Securities in San Francisco.

Thank the government for this one. They are forcing banks and credit card companies to get more aggressive with credit and debit card fees and many banks are getting rid of free checking accounts also.
