maybe the laws vary by state, but i was under the impression that if you dont agree to the new terms your CC co. wants to strangle you with, you could decline them and pay off the balance under your old terms. you wouldn't be able to make any new charges to the card but hopefully most of us here dont plan on doing much of that anyway : )Any change in the terms require the other side (i.e. you, the consumer) to accept them as well. Most card companies send out a well-hidden notice informing you of the new terms along with a legal agreement stating that you have agreed to the new terms if you use the card. To prevent the rate from changing, you need to send a letter to them refusing the new terms, then never use the card again. That way, your debt will stay under the old terms. This is not something that varies state-to-state (at least to my best knowledge).Leviathan
