This week: 'rip-off' card surcharges, pawnbrokers and online food shopping
This week, we need you to pledge your support for the new Which? 'Rip-off' charges campaign. If you've ever booked a budget airline ticket only to find its price massively inflated at the last moment by credit or debit card transaction charges, this one's for you: we're taking a super complaint to the Office of Fair Trading, to ask them to make these fees fairer for consumers.
To help us get the law changed, all you need to do is visit our campaigns page and enter your email address. Almost 10,000 people have already, so you'll be in good company!
Elsewhere this week, would you ever borrow from a pawnbroker? Which? researcher Cathy Neal gives us the lowdown on pawnbroker loans, explaining their appeal and how borrowers can ensure they get the best possible deal.
And don't miss this week's money saving tip: how you could cut the cost of your first ever order at Which? members' favourite online supermarket.
