I just saw that my Citi Smith Barney visa card is now charging me 15.99% on standard purchases.
Last month my rate was 8.99%.
I just got of the phone with a Citi representative. She said there was a notification that went out with last month’s billing statement, but I didn’t notice anything.
She told me that I could opt back to the 8.99% rate, but that I would not be able to renew my card, when it expires, that the account would close.
They take a big tax payer bailout then they screw their tax paying customers.
I’m fucking livid.
