Re: Discover More auto APR decrease

Makes me want to go online and check my statements also.. Even though I pay in full every month so I guess it really doesn't matter. Many carry a balance with the department store cashback rewards though.

Re: Discover More auto APR decrease

I just got an auto CLI, but I won't be able to check if there's a change in APR until the next statement cuts.  It would be nice, because I have the worst APR they offer: 22.9%. It doesn't matter, because I always PIF on this card, but I'd like to see some progress that reflects my improved credit situation.

You can check your current APR in real-time by checking balance transfer offers, which will reveal your current APR. My APR also went down 4% but still too high.

Thanks for the tip.  Mine is still 22.9%.  I guess they are still skittish for some reason.  Oh, well.

Re: Discover More auto APR decrease

We never carry a balance, so it doesn't matter...but it IS frustrating. Just got an online CLI to $14,000k. Been a cardholder since the 80's. Interest rate 20.99%.

 

They are not very good at rewarding long-time successful cardholders. They called us once to ask why we don't use the card more. I had all I could do to not say "duh".

Re: Discover More auto APR decrease

Just checked mine and it is now 14.9%. It used to be 22.9% last I looked.
