Yea even if they would have waved the AF for a year or given me a substantial CLI I would have kept it.  But all they offered me was to half the AF even after I told them what other prime cards I had now and what CL's they had. Next on the chopping block is my bank who's never done anything for me expect been convenient on my way to work. I've just opened a Virtual Wallet account with PNC and I'm checking them out before I switch. I'm tired of banks taking my money and doing squat for me! No more!

I just went to the virtual wallet website and it looks like a cool way to manage money, let us know how it works out.
