Staples Charges Per-File Fee to Make Your Copies

A pal of head BoingBoinger Mark has stumbled across an unbelievable $2.49 per file ‘virus scanning’ charge levied by Staples when customers bring in documents to be printed. Another former Staples employee writes in to say that the fee is more of a document handling type of thing, with an initial $2.49 plus $99 per file charge, just because it’s more of a pain to deal with files than to copy something from paper to paper.

Anyway you slice it, it’s highway robbery. (Thanks, Danilo!)
