Credit Card Surcharges

Under Connecticut law, a business may not charge a customer a surcharge for choosing one payment type (usually credit card) over another payment type (usually cash).  However, the law allows a business to offer a discount to induce a customer to use one type of payment (e.g., cash) over another type of payment (e.g., credit card).  Many customers often believe that not receiving the discount is akin to adding a surcharge, however as long as the final accounting of the transaction on the receipt ultimately shows a discount, it complies with Connecticut law.  (See Connecticut General Statutes § 42-133ff.)
