I would question every AA action, perhaps more that once. At best you'll get something, and at worst you'll get a "NO".


 

I have to agree with Matt when he says: I'm not gonna bother fighting rate hikes.

 

It's not worth the effort. I have better ways to spend my time. I've finally reached a point in my life where I don't care what the rates are. I don't pay interest.

 

Just my 2 cents.

Feel free not to. I question everything and get results.

Agree especially rate jacks to 20%.

This is pretty good for a rewards card.

I've had them almost 15 years each.  They steadily kept raising my credit limits over the past several years. Actually those limits are reduced amounts. They were higher before but I can't remember what they were.  I never get anywhere close to the limit.  The bulk of the raises were about 8 years ago when I was doing very heavy travel for work.  Buying first class international tickets and traveling every week.  I got reimbursed by my company so I paid the credit card bills off each month. They kept raising the limits.

 

The past 2 years they cut them down a bit but not too much. I also bank with those 2 banks with the high limits so I think that might help.  No debt, house is almost paid off and very high income.  I get my salary direct deposited into my checking accounts so I believe the banks can see how much I'm making and kept increasing the limits. 

 

I mostly use my AMEX and been happy with them but the annual fee is high at $550 a year.  I agree with some of the other posters. I think banks will continue to decrease credit lines - especially unused lines of credit.  I do use my MC and Visa but typically only when the place doesn't take AMEX.

Yep, the fee on AMEX Platinum is kinda steep, that's why I've stuck with AMEX Gold despite their numerous attempts to upsell me.  If I did a lot more travel it might be worth the larger fee but I don't do enough to justify it.
