Companies that charge you for stupid things should never be trusted.  You are only to embark on agreements with them out of necessity.  If they’re not smart enough to think you’re smart enough to call "B.S." on a "convenience fee" or a "franchise fee" then they do not deserve your business.  The very least they could do would be raise their base price and forgo the entire "nickle and dime" experience and labeling.  If they charge you a first time set up fee to even enter into business with them, they do not care about you and you should consider yourself warned.  As a people, we will never see the standards of customer service raised until we demand it.
