OMFG!

Did anyone else get a notice in the mail recently from Capital One?

The notice I got said that they are bumping their rates (supposedly across the board). My new rate would be 15.9% as of some date in September.

15.9%!!!!!! Are you kidding me?!!! I haven't had double digit interest on a card since my early 20's.

buh bye C-1

Well Keith, they have to do something to keep those cool commercials on TV ;)

I pay my card down to zero every month too. I haven't paid interest on a credit card for over 25 years :)

I carry a balance, but we carry it on a 0% card. I just get miffed at a rate hike whose rational is, "cause we wanna".

That's the beauty of having choices. They have the choice to bump their rate for carried balances and you have the choice to pay it or find another company that offers a lower rate. I choose AmEx and will have the low interest balance on another card gone soon.

Same thing Chase did. I had the same card at 6.9% fixed for 8 years and they closed it out and re-opened at 14.9% adjustable.

fook Chase and Fook Capital one to!

I opened an Advanta card and so for they have been great, and Customer service speaks English;-)
