<<The persons I spoke with said they could not comment of the policy, only that there will be a notice being sent out to all card holders informing them of the change. I asked if a cancellation now would incur a charge to which they replied 'no.' So I cancelled.>>

Very Foolish, Kelvin! Good for you!

The only way the little guys like us can get our message across to companies who do things like this is to act with our wallets.

You made your point to them, and believe me, when they realize this is a wrong direction to take (and I hope they do!) they will come-a-courtin' to get you back.

Meanwhile, now you can shop around for a card that doesn't have hidden gimmiks and rewards you for your business.

And incidentally, as Roy pointed out, any change that a company imposes, must be preceded with a written notice explaining it. The problem with that though, is that so many people don't read these little legal-eze inserts. I admit I usually can't be bothered with them myself.

Could this be what they're counting on? Hmmmmmm.
