Bank of America Adds $5 Monthly Fee for Debit Card Holders

Ouch. Looks like you BofA customers that always brag about how marvelous your bank is might want to start looking elsewhere. Ha! (I’m gloating, yes. My bank is small and relatively unknown because it’s only in NJ but it is AMAZING and I guarantee you it has better features than yours! Hehe.) Bank of America will now charge $5 a month to debit card holders who make purchases with their cards. Don’t fret just yet though.

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul took her talents to New York City for a special performance powered by Budweiser x Tidal for their Made In America festival. After the concert goers all loaded onto a ferry to get across the Hudson river to the Statue of Liberty, Mary hit the stage for an intimate hour-long set. She performed her classic hits including “No More Drama,” “My Life,” “Real Love” and many, many more (looking and sounding the same as she did 20 years ago… amazing!). Budweiser provided free beer to all of the privileged guests along with complimentary burgers, popcorn, cookies, assorted nuts and more along with cool Budweiser gifts such as drawstring bags, beer holders, bandanas and so on. The whole day was an absolutely amazing experience and if anyone who attended wasn’t a fan of Tidal prior, this concert definitely should have made everyone a believer (including myself).
