  1. Thanks for the info. With all the crazy credit card websites out there giving bad information it is good to see someone that knows what they are talking about.

    I see you’re going through what I’m going through. I dont’ have a huge amount of credit card debt but I used to keep none tile this past winter when the gas bills in the new house were MUCH higher than expected (think 3 times higher). Now I’ve got $1000 balance on a card that just raised it’s interest rate to about 20%!!! GRRR…. so priority number 1 is getting that paid off.

    Dolphin, I sympathize with your plight. “GRRRR” is right.

    Mysteriously, I received a call from one bank of which I have 2 cards with a balance. The call came on the day of the stress tests. This bank offered to cut my rate from over 25% to 5% AND they cut my monthly minimum fee in half. I suggest you call the credit card people and see what they can do.

    I’ve reduced the first card, Citibank to half of what was owed. They also cut my APR rate in half. Not as good as the one previously mentioned, but it’s a good start.
