|2011 Credit Card Fee Survey|
A year after the Credit CARD Act's major provisions went into effect, predictions of an onslaught of fees haven't come true.
Despite industry analysts' predictions that the Credit CARD Act of 2009 would cause issuers to reinstate annual fees and introduce a host of new fees, that hasn't happened. The survey shows the vast majority of cards reviewed (95 percent) had no annual fee and there hasn't been an onslaught of new fees.
