Banks began instituting monthly fees in response to last year's Dodd-Frank legislation that limited the amount of money banks could charge merchants for individual transactions. Banks skirted the legislation by charging a flat monthly fee to use debit cards in order to recoup some of the losses.

Public uproar has now sent many banks retreating and backing off the new fees. Thousands of customers called service lines, bank managers and took to social media platforms to express their distaste for the new fees.
