Finally a decent BT offer.... or not?

[ Edited ]

Cap One just sent me two blue checks (and two reds).  Of course they do this weekly, but this week the blue checks have a 0% BT for the life of the transfer w/ their standard 50 fee. 

 

Not bad!!!

Re: Finally a decent BT offer

That's an outstanding offer!

 

I haven't received a life of the transfer offer in a long time!

Re: Finally a decent BT offer

I swear I have no idea why CapOne likes me.  Card turned 1 in Jan.  Started at 3k, now sits at 5250.  APR is 10.4 (or 10.14 -- can't remember). 

 

I've paid 1 BT fee, 2 AFs (19 each) and about a dollar in finance charges.

They send me the no BT fee and reduced or regular purchase rate APR's.  I don't think I have gotten the 0% checks.  But they have never charged me a BT fee.  APR is I think 10.24.

Re: Finally a decent BT offer

I have one CapOne that is about at the end of the first year 0% interest on BT and purchases. It does not state what rate is after that but if it is 2 digit, then it gets PIFed.

 

Other CapOne is about at end of 1 year 0%, 3% fee deal then goes to 5.99%.

 

I think both are reasonable and am pleased with Capital One.

Received the same 0% for life of loan checks today.  Card thas been stuck at $4500 for a couple of years though, and right now I have $1800 parked on it at 3.9% for life.

Re: Finally a decent BT offer

Soo...  if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

 

I rec'd a letter from Cap1 yesterday that the blue checks I recently received contained an error and are now invalid.  According to them they should have said, "Zero APR for 6 months, then your regular purchase APR".  I was really irked, as I was planning on going to the bank today to deposit one of the blue checks.

 

Cap1 -- you're skating on thin ice.

 

They did mention that I should call if I've already used the check (sadly, no) or destroy the unused checks.  What a bunch of jerks.

I received those checks a few weeks ago and I also received that letter yesterday.  Good thing I didn't use the checks.  Anything that's too good to be true, usually is.

It kinda had to be. In this economic climate, a bank who just reported a default rate near 10% is not going to hand out potential multi-year loans at 0%. :smileyhappy:
