Bank of America nixes $5 debit card fee

NEW YORK (AP) - Bank of America is nixing its plans to charge a $5 debit card fee.

The news comes after other major bank s, including Chase and Wells Fargo, said last week that they were canceling tests of similar fees.

Bank of America had said last week that it would stand by its decision to roll out the $5 monthly fee starting next year.

The about-face by the banking industry comes amid growing public anger over higher fees.

A movement to get customers to switch to credit unions and community banks had marked this Saturday as "Bank Transfer Day."
