Discover card is jacking my rate up!!

My fixed rate of 12.99% is going up to a variable rate of prime (as of Feb 09) + 13.99% = ~17.99%??  

 

I don't have a large balance on this card and I normally pay it off in full.  I'm never late on this card either.

Sorry to hear it!

 

With Discover, after your account has been opened a year, they allow you to request a lower APR. Have you tried this? 

Here we go again...

Re: Discover card is jacking my rate up!!

I've had the card more than a year and they did lower the rate to 12.99% fixed.

Re: Discover card is jacking my rate up!!

I called Discover and they actually lowered my rate to 12.24% variable and they said my rate won't get jacked up in June.  It will only move with the prime rate.  Discover is no longer offering fixed rates at this time.
