Your Life Choices: Unfair charges: should you have to pay to pay?
Consumer group Keep Me Posted says it’s simply not right that consumers, who choose not to (or can’t) receive bills digitally, should have to pay to receive a paper copy of a bill in the mail. Do you agree?
Keep Me Posted, which according to its Executive Director Kellie Northwood, is not an anti-digital but rather a pro-consumer campaign that firmly believes consumers should have a choice and should not be charged to receive paper bills.
With charges placed on bills varying greatly, some as much as $3.50, is this a fair cost to the consumer?
