    YEa, folks better check their credit card rates.

    I got a rate increase and they said it was due to the economy, I told them i guess I wasn't that valuable of a customer.

    They dropped it back to the orginal rate and gave me a refund on what they charged me from the high interest rate.

    yup, I just transferred my balance to a 7% card because they wanted to jack it to 24% even though I have never been late.

    I told winnie-the-pooh to take a dump in his honey pot;)

    I'sent that irony. They took our money in the bailout and now they want to take more. Something not morally right with this picture. But, they are all in bed together and nothing we can do about it.

    Sure there is, live w/i your means and don't barrow any money!

    It's that simple!

    Years ago when I traveled for the old APGreen Refractories Co., I used 100 percent CASH! And when I had to show a D/L or C/C, I didn't stay at that Motel again!

    I paid up front and left the key on the nightstand when I left!

    They can raise whatever the hell they want. If they try sticking me because of a bad economy, I will cancel my cards, just like I canceled all the rest of the leach type bills.

    There ya go. And that is the way I am heading with my life. All this fluff that people think they need is a facade and a waste of money. Try getting rid of just one of the things you can't live without. Give it two months time, and you will see that you really don't need it.

    I need those to protect what few things I have left. My internet service will be the last to go. My satelite TV is next. I pay by the year, so in Dec. it's gone. Man my son is gonna be pissed!

    I agree totally. If they choose to raise my interest rates and use that phony excuse, I'll give them back their credit cards. I haven't used a credit card for over a year now because I've switched to using my debit card instead. This way there is no chance of paying interest, fees, or penalties.
