My Citi card jumped to 19.99% for no reason whatsoever. Well, maybe it's because they're on the verge of collasing or something...
Anyway, I called them up and asked them to lower it and they did. In fact, they changed it to an even lower APR than I started with! I went from 13.99% to 19.99% to 10.99%.
I called Chase up for a reduction, but they were only willing to from 23.99% to 21.99%. I guess I'll keep a zero balance on that one.
Capital One denied me a APR decrease outright. Also keeping a zero balance.
My FICO's are mid to high 600's, and my last late was over 4 years ago.
Hope that helps!
