Discover APR reduction!

So I decided to chat with Discover today about my APR, I just asked what I needed to do in order to lower it.  She came back and said she'd be happy to lower it from 22.99% to 18.3%, Its still a bit high, but certainly better than 22.99%.  I thanked her and she said come back again in 3 months and they'll reduce it again.  Discover sure wants me to use their card, and I'm more than happy to do that!

Very nice, congrats!

 

I'm waiting until next month when my 0% APR offer expires to ask. Fingers crossed for similar results. Smiley Happy

Thanks Wanderer, it sure does.  This is all very new to me!

 

And Irisa I hear you there, I just noticed my account has an offer for 0% for 12 months on balance transfers...might move my last two account balances to Discover and use it exclusively (been enjoying the categories).  Good luck with your reduction request next month!   And thanks for the reply.

Re: Discover APR reduction!

I just logged on to my discover account just to check what my apr from my most recent statement was. It was 3.99% i think that is part of their intro apr when i applied last year. I couldn't find anywhere where it says how long that intro apr lasts for. On my amex and chase i remember it saying their intro aprs lasted until january 2015. I am kind of curious to find out where i could find out when my intro apr expires. I have an feeling its going to skyrocket to 22.99 %.

mongstradamus, I'd hop on their online chat real quick and ask when/if the 3.99% ends and what your APR will be afterwards.  Good luck and let us know!
