Re: Cancelled wamu/chase cc.. What is your interest rate?

To quote George Burns:  "If she dies, she dies."

 

If you are doing all the right things, then there is nothing you can do to alter the outcome one way or the other, with one exception.  Do the wrong things.  So, pay on time, PIF and let the cards fall where they may.  Worry won't have any impact, except on your blood pressure :smileywink:

My interest rate was 9.99% which was what it was when I got the card in Nov. 08, though I never carried a balance, and they canceled it a few days back.

Mine is 29.99% and they didn't have any reason other than I was a WAMU card I guess.  Never been late, perfect credit, always PIF....so I guess APR doesn't really matter.  Of course my credit wasn't perfect when WAMU opened account with initial CL of $2.5 in 2006.  Maybe they remember my formerly less than perfect credit.

 

They also don't allow me any type of BT and they limit cash to $700 of my $3.5k CL.

I think these accounts are branded. I can only hope that one day after Chase is done closing all the accounts in their pogrom that the ones that are left (hopefully ours) are marked as "rehabilitated" and returned to gen pop!
