As of Sunday, January 27, 2013, retailers are officially allowed to add a surcharge of up to 4.00% onto your bill if you opt to pay with a credit card.

Should the maker die, lose a job, or otherwise fail to make payments, all responsibility for meeting the terms of the loan transfers to the cosigner. An often-overlooked aspect of cosigning a loan is the fact that the loan appears on both the maker’s and cosigner’s credit reports.
