11.49%. Sure it is only a drop of 3.5%, but it was the principal of the thing. The irony is that I normally used the AT&T card for business related purposes, whether it be expenses I atrribute towards re-employment or Fuskie Island Productions, my video editing side business. On the latter, I just spent about $325 on materials to produce a DVD of my nephew's middle years school play (3 cameras, 4 shows, 24 hours of video, 2 120min DVDs), for which I have 4 confirmed orders at $25 a pop, and expectations of up to 20. It will take me 13 orders to break even, and don't expect to make more than a couple hundred in profit, but I did it for my nephew and to make some connections with potential future customers, not to make money. The point being, the $325 in costs would have been on the AT&T card had they not been in the doghouse.

Who was fully prepared to close this account and had intentionally zeroed the balance, but encourages anyone in a similiar situation, regardless of their current rate and balance, to wait a month after a rate adjustment rejection and try again with a little honey...
