Citi PC Not as Rep Said

I recently called Citi to switch my Platinum Select Visa to Forward and two reps told me my interest rate would stay the same. Fast forward to today, I got the terms for the card, and my interest rate actually will go up 5%. I think I'm going to cancel the PC unless anyone has any ideas?

I knew something was fishy when they told you that.  The APR has changed for everyone I know that did a PC.

If you normally PIF then i say stay with it if its the Forward with 5x benefit... but if its the 2x benefit decline it.

FICO: EX: 756 (8/14); TU: 758 (9/14); EQ 732 (8/14)

In My Wallet: Amex X 5 | Barclays X 3 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 2 | Citi X 6 | DCU X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 1 | PenFed X 1 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1 = 33 Cards

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!

They told me on the phone it was 5x, but the disclosure I got doesn't say anything about that. With my experience with the APR, I'm assuming they probably told me the wrong thing and it will be 2x...
