Re: Chase SUCKS

Okay just got off with the rep, luckly her english as quite good. Smiley Happy  Well the ap is 23.24% she said she could run my credit and try to lower it, i declined. I'd rather wait untill I have little to no debt before getting my credit ran. I still have about 2k in CC debt, and about 16K left to pay on my car. oops getting off track....Well the 47.41% is the apr on the transfer fees and cash adavances as someone stated earlier in the thread. I completely forgot but beginning of this year I did a balance transfer of  $200 to this account. The 47.41 is the TOTAL for the YEAR. *sigh* guess I was a little to worried over nothing. Well this is all cleared up. I do  want to THANK Smiley Happy  everyone for their very timely responses was real fast love this place. Thanks again everyone

Re: Chase SUCKS

Yes, that effective APR will sure make you jump. Once you become a PIF'er, you'll see something like this instead:

FINANCE
APR CHARGES
Effective Annual Percentage Rate (APR): 0.00%
Finance Charge Transaction
Daily Periodic Rate Corresp. Average Daily Due To Fee / Accumulated
Category 30 days in cycle Balance Periodic Rate Service Charge Fin Charge
Purchases V.05271% 19.24% $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
Cash advances V.06915% 25.24% $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
Total finance charges $0.00

(The formatting is a mess, but this is from my Chase statement, showing a purchase APR of 19.24% and an effective APR of 0.00%.)

Someone once posted a screenshot of a statement where their effective APR was something crazy like 120%. They were actually asking about something else, but I saw that figure and my heart nearly stopped. That's when I found out about effective APR --whew! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Chase SUCKS

The effective APR reflects just how profitable fees are for the issuer.

 

Financing a scoial life on carried CC balances is a bad plan,

Get your current GF on board with you. Get her to join the forum.

Barely. I hung up on two of them. The first CSR thought I was nuts, the second CSR sounded just like the first one.

 

BTW - All of them answered my question incorrectly. I got the right answer later on at a branch! (This was not a CC question. It was a bank account question.) Pretty shameful performance.
