You can’t spend more than $50 on your debit card!

Filed in: Industry News |

Chase just release information that they are considering capping all debit transactions to $50 maximum.

This is in response to the $.12 debit card interchange regulation battle that is waging between banks and retailers. I will refrain from commenting on the debit card regulation at this point. I’ve made my views and concerns known to the federal reserve board. What I will end with is that the entire debit and credit regulation concept is far more complicated that many would like to believe. It cannot be simply capped without major repercussions perhaps large enough to hurt the entire US and world economies. Something as important as this should not be attached to major bills and should be voted on separately as this specific regulation was not.
