So like so many others Chase closed my account last month without any prior notice. I received the same generic letter saying it was because of something from my credit report. Anyway today I went online to make sure my payment was received and I noticed the credit limit they listed was different from the one that I had before the account was closed.
I called and the rep said my account was reopened today but with a lower credit limit. My limit before they closed my account was $1,300 and now its $600. I honestly don't want the card anymore. I will be nervous when I use it not knowing if Chase has closed it again. Has anyone else had their card reopened by Chase and if so what have you decided to do? Once I I pay my $300 balance I want to be done with Chase. I don't trust them and I can see them pulling this same madness months down the road.

I closed my Amazon Chase back in May. I never used the card after making the initial purchase on Amazon.com. I received $30 off my order, and I received another $25 for enrolling in some type of plan. I made $55 off them. They made $0 from me.
I will never apply for any of there products againt. BOA, Chase, and GEMB are all on my do not apply list.

I'm not sure why Chase reopened my account. I didn't ask them to. When I first received the letter saying it was closed I sent in a letter to the CEO of card services, and filed a complaint with the BBB, and the Controller of Banks maybe one of these letters had something to do with it. Oh well too late I'm done with Chase.
If you made the effort to file two complaints through proper channels and get the relief sought why would you turn it away? CLD's are on the menu being served by Chase this month and there are going to be a lot of them. Just put the card aside and let it rest. In another month or two you may be very happy that you did.

I doubt if I'm going to sit around and just wait for Chase to close the account again. Once I pay my balance I think I will close it myself. It's not my oldest account. When this account was with WAMU it was my one with the highest limit and I really loved the card but now considering Chase closed my account than opened it back with a lower limit I HATE IT!!! I will never do business with that company again.
I salute you. I feel the same way about B of A. I know these too big to fail banks don't give a hoot and couldn't care less whether we as individuals do business with them or not. But 2 can play this game and I'll be darn if I'm going to do business with an institution that treats me improperly. Perhaps if millions more stood for principle and took the bull by the horn. Ain't gonna happen but at least we can feel good about our decisions. Good luck to ya!
