If you're going to tack on cashback at your local Kroger grocery store, you will start seeing a fee tacked on for the perk.
Like using a foreign ATM, the grocery chain is adding at least a 50-cent fee for debit card cashback transactions, WXIX reported.
Our cash back program allows customers to get up to $300 cash back, and that’s a convenience they can’t get at any of our competitors. When customers scan their Kroger card, the .50 cent fee is waived for cash back up to $100 and the fee is $3.00 for the amount higher than $100.— Kroger (@kroger) July 24, 2019
The amount will increase in steps depending on how much cash you ask for.
For an amount 99 cents and under, there will be no fee. For an amount of $99.99 and under, the fee will be 50 cents.
For amounts between $100 and $150, the fee will be $1.50. For $150.01 to $300 it will cost you $3.50. , WXIX reported.
The fees were instituted because banks charge Kroger a fee, according to a tweet by company officials in response to customer complaints.
We are sorry to hear about your feelings about the cashback fee! We have a fee due to banks & other retailers raising ATM fees & limiting the amount of cashback. We want to offer our customers a convenient, low cost, way to get their money. We hope you understand!— Kroger (@kroger) July 29, 2019
