I must be moving up in the world! (Merrick Bank)

These last ten years I've spent with never a late payment to anyone and the multiple large lines of credit I've cultivated have really elevated me in the eyes of Merrick Bank, which I've been with since about 2003.  They must recognize the excellent credit risk I am, and they've rewarded my loyalty.

 

I got a notice from Pageonce that my APR decreased by 2%.  It was 32.45% and now it's 30.45%

Re: I must be moving up in the world! (Merrick Bank)

Few lates (few days) yes but that was over a year ago and when it used to be WAMU card, I don't know how to lower it, it was around 13 at one point and went up and up to around 18 and bam to 29.99 when Chase took over !!! I recently converted old Chase card to Freedom.

 

I do PIF each month now NO WAY IM paying that APR grrrrr. 

Lots of cards and counting !!

My wife's Freedom is 29.24%. Perfect payment history in the 12 years she had it (former Providian / WAMU and now Chase). The APR was always high (24%?) but when Chase took over they raised it to 29.24%. Needles to say, we never carry a balance.
