Rate jack for Saks store cards

[ Edited ]

I just received an email from Saks saying there is a change of terms with my account.  I called customer service and they informed me about a change with payment due dates, late fees and a change of APR.  I didn't pay attention to the details about the payment due dates and late fees because I pay my bills on time.  I wanted to know how much they are going to rate jack me.  My current APR is 22.9% which has a 7.5% prime rate...WTF?  It is going up to 20.74% + prime = ~28%

 

I thought the prime rate was 3.25%

I contacted Saks customer service today, and was informed that I should be receiving a letter regarding this issue sometime next week.  The representative told me that this change of terms will affect all accounts.  I've had a Saks account since 1978.

I just received my letter today.  My rate will also be 20.74% + Prime, or 23.99%.
