Credit card good news!

Just thought I'd share...

I had a credit card with a 0% introductory rate. Well, I had been late paying it for the past few months so they took the 0% away. I pumped myself up to declare it wasn't my fault and just sucked it up and called. I simply asked why my rate changed, and the guy said it was probably a late payment.... "but let's see if I can change it back." So I didn't even have to complain or anything. Oh, and he waived the late fee for me. I've found that unlike phone companies and the like, credit card companies just want you to call and talk to them. You usually don't even have to do much convincing to get them to do what you want.

Keep your heads up. I was totally bummed to have it taken away because on $4900, 0% was saving me a lot. This changed my day around.b
