Re: LOL @ First Premier

First Premier got me where I am today, but sadly I will be closing my FP account later this year.. I just can't pay the AF anymore when I have 3 new CC's with no AF and rewards. My girlfriend will also be closing her's later this year too, as she just got approved on a Cap 1 card Smiley Very Happy

Re: LOL @ First Premier

I can't even believe it is legal for them to do that. I understand that  if you mess up your creit it should cost you some. $175 AF is just greed.

Re: LOL @ First Premier

About a month ago I requested a CLI from FP and was denied due to prior late payments (almost 3  years ago)... so my limit is still $450.     I just applied for NFCU cash rewards and was approved for $10k.   Proof that FP is a truly a joke, but they did help me recover, but at a cost.

Re: LOL @ First Premier

Haha, I actually got the same offer a couple of weeks ago, I kept it because it was so off the wall... 

 

$700 limit, $175 annual fee, and.... 35.99% (!!!!) interest. I'm half tempted to mail them a photocopy of my terms for my 5k limit discover with 14.99% in the return envelope. The envelope had these colorful baloons on it and it said I was pre-approved for a REAL, GENUINE MASTERCARD@!, it looks like it's geared towards a 13 year old... seriously, this should be considered corporate robbery.

Re: LOL @ First Premier

I can't remember where I read this, but we know since the CARD Act, they cannot charge an outrageous fee for a low-limit card but what I think they've been doing is hiking up the initial credit limit to $700, so their fee is still within a certain percentage but then out of left-field, they will reduce your credit line -- because they "can" at any time according to their Terms & Conditions.  Therefore, they just collected on you without breaking the rules -- just worked around it.

 

I'm not sure if it was this particular ccc in the article or news, but it sure sounds like it.
