    Question What are aldi credit card surcharges?

    I was thinking of buying something big on a credit card from Aldi and I remember hearing from a friend that there's a surcharge on transactions at ALDI, anyone know what they are?

    Are credit card surcharges even legal? I know Jetstar charged me $8.50 and I wasn't happy!

    I think last time I went with Tiger it was $7.70, been a few years now may have gone up. Very annoying extra costs. Does it cost the shop anything?
    I love to shop!

    Hi there, the ALDI credit card charges are 0.5%, from what I've seen they're looking at putting restrictions on the amount shops can charge so that airlines can't charge these huge fees for just making a booking! I agree they are annoying, ever seen this song:

    This is about UK/Irish companies, but I feel it's applicable:

    Here's an article about trying to change the way they do business:

    Consumers look set to save hundreds of millions of dollars in credit card surcharges following rule changes by the Reserve Bank.

    I can't find a date on when the rules are meant to change, normally things like this would be start of the tax year, but I can't find any more information.
