>> Did you ever consider asking the card company to up the limit? Not sumthing I would normally recommend, but atleast if you get it above the balance level that 18 fee would not post... Just a thought.<<

Yes, my brother had asked them to increase the credit line just so the $18 per month would go away. They refused. So, $18 per month, plus the $15 or so finance charge, and CCCS has him paying $20 per month. Yeah, that will work - ON BIZARRO WORLD! Seriously though, he can only afford so much each month and they've got it split up among all of his cards, but with this one, it's just not working out.

Right now I'm thinking of getting him a loan by co-signing it so he can consolidate all of this debt.
