Received Notice of Important Changes to Credit One Bank

[ Edited ]

I just receievd my bill from Credit One and there was an insert showing important changes to my account as of 8-1-2011


  • Annual Membership Fee - $99.00 (billed at $8.35)
  • Cash Advance Fee - Either 8.00% or $5.00 of each cash advance, whichever is greater

I don't care about the cash advance, since I don't do that anyway.. But, now they want to charge me $100  a year for a $500 limit card.. I don't think so.... 


Did anyone else get this?  I've been carrying a zero balance for the last few months (always paid in full each month).  As of 7/1, I'm closing this card..


After that, the next to close is FP!

Probably (I toss the envelope lol).  I see that monthly fee on every online statement.


I just stuck the card in the drawer two weeks ago (zero balance).


BK to fall off 2/12 - DONE!

Credit One sent me a pre-approval for a card with a limit "up to $1500", which makes me wonder what they were looking at when they "pre-approved" me.  However, it says that the annual fee is $75 for the first year and $99 thereafter.  Is August your 1 year anniversary?
