Capital One Automatically Lowered my APR!!

My January statement included the following love note from Capital One:

 

Good News: Because of your on-time payment history, some or all of your Annual Percentage Rates

(APRs) have been returned to your Non-Introductory Rate. 

 

My purchase APR went from 23.15% to 7.79% AND they lowered the APR on my prior balance transfer from 23.15% to 3.99%.  This was after 12 months of on-time payments.

 

...and I didn't even have to ask! :smileyvery-happy:


Starting Score (6/9/09): TU 610 | EQ 600
Current Score (01/15/2013): TU 734 | EQ 719
Goal Score (12/31/2013): TU 750 | EQ 750

NOT!

 

I can't recall the last time I saw a post decrying a CU for CC that was stuck perpetually at a low CL by design or pulling three hard INQ's for an app as a matter of policy.
