Inflation hits tooth fairy

Days of finding a quarter under your pillow are long gone. The Tooth Fairy no longer leaves loose change. Kids this year are getting an average of $3.70 per lost tooth, a 23 percent jump over last year's rate of $3. That's a 42 percent spike from 2011, when the Tooth Fairy gave $2.60 per tooth, according to a new survey by payment processor Visa Inc., released Friday with an update of the company's Tooth Fairy personal finance app.
