Quicksilver is adding a new fee to its card purchases: a charge for the amount of money left in a credit card after you’ve already used it.
The credit card company announced Friday it would start charging consumers for this charge starting in the first quarter of 2019.
The change will be part of a broader effort to get customers to use more credit cards.
It is expected to be one of several features that Quicksilvers card will offer customers in the next few months.
Quicksilver declined to say how much the fee would be, citing a nondisclosure agreement with Chase, the credit card industry’s main rival.
But the move is expected, as other major card issuers have begun to raise fees to encourage consumers to spend more.
Quicksilt is one of those companies, which also charges customers an annual fee for a credit limit and annual fees for annual transactions.
The fee for this new charge is expected in the spring, Quicksights chief executive officer Kevin Johnson said.
Quidsilver said the fee is aimed at getting customers to spend less on the cards they have already used, rather than for paying off old ones.
Quinnsilver’s fee is the third major charge it is raising to encourage people to use credit cards more frequently.
The company raised a fee last year for its first annual fee of $75 for new accounts, a $25 increase over the previous year.
And in February, Quinsilver raised a new annual fee that is the second highest of its size in the United States, at $1,200 for new and new combined accounts.
Quinsilver is among several credit card companies that are raising fees to attract more customers.
Quirksilver and Discover, two of the nation’s biggest issuers, each raised fees for the first time in 2018.
QuikTrip, which is also part of Quicksillers parent company, Discover, has also increased its fee.
The new fee is expected not only to raise more money for Quicksildest and Quicksilon, but to help Quicksilkers balance its balance sheet as it tries to expand.
Quillsilver also is planning to raise other fees for its customers, including fees for overseas transactions, which are expected to go up in the coming months.
In February, a Quickslime spokeswoman said that Quinsilvers fees are “based on the consumer’s annual spending and are not a change to the terms of their card, or to any other Quicksavers terms.”
The fee increases come as Quicksily is trying to turn around a troubled business.
Quizzers, based in Fort Wayne, Ind., has been trying to cut its debt by raising more money from investors.
In the first nine months of this year, it raised $20 million from investors, according to a regulatory filing.
It also raised money in a private placement in April.
Last year, the company said that it had made a net loss of $1.2 million.
Quinsiles debt is about $9.8 billion, according the filing.
QuikToys declined to comment on the new fee.
In addition to charging for the remaining amount of the card, Quizzers said it will begin charging customers for the cost of all fees and other costs that it incurred during the period.
In 2019, Quizys fee is $15.
Quizzly has said it expects to charge an additional $15 for annual fees, plus a fee for transactions beyond the first year of its cards.
Quiksilver has said that the fee will help the company balance its books and get ready for the launch of the next generation of its credit cards in 2019.
