<< Whoa!! Kelvin, are you serious?? That is unbelievable. I don't see how that can be done, unless the card issuer makes the user sign a contract prior to getting the card--similar to the way cellular phone companies work it.

You're absolutely right. I actually have an Advanta card, (it was originally Household). I am going to call them to verify what I've heard. I don't see how they can "introduce" this new fee to already existing contracts. The card is a no fee account, so there's no harm in keeping it... yet. If these guys are allowed to change the game on the fly, who knows what can happen. I'll let you know what the outcome is. I'm a person of strong principal... I cancelled my American Express over a 1.95 charge, so things like this really make me irritated.
