Chase humor

I was logged into Chase to check on an ACH payment I made and noticed this:

Balance Transfer  
Are you paying too much interest? Transfer your balances from high-interest credit cards and start saving with great low APR offers.
:smileyvery-happy:
My APR is 29.99%.  Yeah, I'll take some of that!  :smileytongue:

Amazing.......ok, not really (considering all of the posts re: Chase).

 

With your scores and credit history it is indeed astounding that they are not doing anything to retain you as a customer...

Re: Chase humor

Whew!  I had to go back and look at my Chase account.  I have a Freedom MC and the interest rate is still 14.24%.   At least it is today.

Re: Chase humor

I just got that message today, too, when I signed on.  When I clicked on it it said 'Balance Transfers are not available for your account at this time' even though there is a zero balance on this card.

Chase ad:  BT Transfer your high interest cards to a low APR. 

 

CLICK - NO BT AVAILABLE
