Re: Discover APR Reduction

After reading this thread, I logged in and checked my IT account.

 

They gave me a rate reduction (auto) from 16.99 to 10.99%. Nice...

 

Guess I will give them some business!

So I've been working on my credit for the last 3 years and have made great progress!  Thank you "My Fico" Smiley Happy  I applied for Discover last year at the end of July and was approved with a $1500 cl and APR of 20.99%.  At the time I applied there was a 12 month 0% promotion as well.  This is also the last cc I've applied for and I have been in the garden since.  So anyway I've never received an auto cli and I waited till August to call and ask for an APR reduction as I have high utilization and figured they wouldn't do a limit increase.  The agent I spoke with said she could NOT reduce my APR w/o pulling my credit report but that she could extend my 0% promotion for another year.  I took it!  Well got my statement today and the APR was changed to 15.99%, I panicked and thought they didn't honor the 0% so I called.  Well the agent said yes I am getting the 0% promotion till next Oct (2013) and that the APR was changed October 1st from 20.99 to 15.99%.  Woo Hoo!  It may still seem high but its certainly better than 20.99%.  I just wanted to give back to my fico by sharing my story!  Good luck my fico comrades and there is hope, it just takes time and patience but the results get better eventually. Smiley Very Happy

 


UPDATE:

OMGosh!! Smiley Surprised

Went to do some online shopping thru shop Discover for the extra 2% and my account said this!  I immediately logged out and logged back in and it said the same thing! I then restarted my computer to be sure there wasn't a glitch of some kind and nope still had the same info!  Auto cli!  Unbelievable!

Last Statement Balance$605.34

Do you think Discover realizes they did this for me???  I'm sure not calling to confirm, why ask the devil to dance?  BTW if they did this based on Transunion then that's my best report with no baddies, no inquiries, high utilization on 2 NFCU cards (50%) and a Fico of 725 according to WM.

Re: Discover APR Reduction UPDATE

Not much probably anywhere from $100-$400 but in September we went to Sea World and I charged the down payment for 5 Disneyland passes for the 5% themepark category which by the way they didnt count for 5%. Disneyland coded it as an annual payment and not amusement parks but I did call and ask about that and the CSR adjusted my cash back for it. So in September I ran about 1085 thru it.
