Hey all!

A couple days ago I received a letter from Fleet Bank saying they made a mistake and gave me too low an APR and had to raise it. I called them today about it, and the first rep basically told me that they would be able to fix it. She transferred me to the next person in the chain, and she basically said the best they could do was a fixed 12.99% APR (I was at a 9.99% fixed APR). I told her I was at 9.99%, and that I would have to transfer the balance to one of my other cards with 9.99%. She pretty much ignored me and asked if I would like the 12.99% offer. I told her fine and hung up. (The DOH! of my story)

The next call I made was to MBNA which I haven't used for about 6 months due to their interest rates being higher than the rest of my cards. I get the first rep transferring me to the second rep again. I told the second rep, "I enjoyed the service that I received from them, but I had to transfer my balances to other cards with lower rates. If you could give me a 8.99% fixed rate I would be willing to transfer the balance on my cards." She said sure! So I transfered my Fleet account and the balance on another card too. (Happy, happy, joy, joy)

A "I don't get mad, I get even" Mouse!
