31. While we are bitching....
Bank of America... with no announcement... started charging a "foreign transfer fee" on purchases outside the US. We used to use our debit card while traveling in Europe.

We were on the Alaska Highway this summer, and used the shit out of our debit card.

When we got back, our bank statement showed over 35 bucks worth of fees.

I'd move to another bank, but my whole bill-payer setup is with BofA. Besides, they're all tightening up on service to make the bottom line bigger.
