Some banks charge fees for things that just do not make sense. For instance, my boyfriend’s bank charges a fee of 50 cents for each time he uses his debit card after the first 5 times per month.

See what hidden fees your bank is charging, and if they’re a bit ridiculous, you might want to change banks.
