Congrats! I am still in my intro period, Do you have other accounts with them, and what is your time with AMEX?

 

Should a member call months and months before the regular rate goes live, or do you think its better to call right before?


They won't entertain an APR decrease until the promo rate is over.


Not entirely true - I contacted them about the APR on my EveryDay card during my intro 0% APR.  Was able to get them to reduce it (like 2%) really not much at all, but at least now I'm below 20% once the real APR kicks in 2016. 

 

Others may be able to get larger reductions.

I see that you have edited your APR reduction from 12.25% to 10.24% - did you get it reduced again from 12.25 or was this just a correction?

Just ask. It never hurts to ask. My BCE started at 16.99% back in 2012. And now it's at 7.24%. I ask them to reduce my APR every few months. Sometimes they reduce it, other times they say no offers are currently available.
