In this week's podcast: card charges, mortgage tips and how to save on pet medicine
This week we investigate the costly credit and debit card charges some retailers impose when you choose to pay with plastic. With fees increasing the cost of items by up to 200%, we ask why they're being levied, whether they're fair and if there's anything you can do to avoid them.
Also in today's podcast, Which? property and mortgages expert Cathy Neal offers top tips for anyone looking to purchase a new property or find a re mortgage deal. Does a fixed rate or tracker mortgage make more sense right now? We also reveal which lenders performed well, and poorly, in our recent mortgages satisfaction survey.
And don't miss this week's money saving tip: how to save money on pet medicine by shopping around, or even shopping online.
