Capital One 1% APR increase LOL!

I opened a capital one student visa cash rewards march of 2010 and I just got a notice that they will be increasing the APR from 22.9% to 23.9% I called and asked and they told me that 22.9% is a promotional offer. What a joke! I only use this card once a month and PIF but seriously what kind of a promotional offer is that? I've had the standard platinum mastercard since december of 2009 and no rate on that one. Capital One is a weird company

Insert "crappy" for "weird" and yes, I agree.

When I opened my Student Visa from Cap 1 on October, my APR is 24.9%. I don't have a promotional rate.
