All together now -- H-E-double hockey sticks YES!

I got this in the mail:

>> In light of rising interest rates over the past few years and your current rate, the APR on your account is about to increase. Your new rate for purchase balances will be as follows:


*cough* *sputter* My current purchase APR is 12.90%.

I called and spoke to a very nice man in India. After he assured me that it was nothing that I had done to cause this rate increase on my Platinum account I asked him to pass a message to The Powers That Be: "Do they really think I'm going to want to use the one card in my wallet that will now have highest purchase APR? Are they crazy?!"

I could hear the smile in the voice as he said he would pass on my message.

Since I'm no longer adding to my credit card debt what they do to my urchase APR is a moot point, but their actions still gall me.
