Glad to Be Locked Out!

November 17th, 2015 at 05:03 pm

So yesterday I wanted to check my credit card account which I use for gas only (get 5% back all the time.) Only I couldn't remember for sure what my password was and got locked out.

So this afternoon I got on the site and was looking for the customer service number when the advertisements for the rewards cards caught my eye.

I for whatever reason decided to look at the different cards ... One of which was the same card I have.

I noticed something weird though .. the fine print for the card I have showed a $25 annual fee if you didn't have a qualifying account.

Say what?!

So when I called customer service to unlock my password I also asked about this. I found out that I had been grandfathered in to no account fees, but THIS was the end of the grandfathered period! (November!)

In the end I opened up a money market account with $25 so that I could keep a no annual fee (and the 5% - otherwise it would've gone to 3%.) I can withdraw the $25 from the money market account with no penalties. So stupid the shenanigans.

My sinuses are killing me, even with allergy meds. I'm beginning to wonder if I don't have a sinus infection. ugh!

Just 3 more days of work!!!!!!!!

    Try a neil med nasal spray and neil med nasal gel. I have constant sinus infections, and spraying out my sinues gently with distilled water and saline really helps a great deal.

    I'm suffering from sinus on the other side of the globe too. Let's hope we both recover soon!

    I am so glad you noticed that. I will never pay an annual fee for use of a credit card. I am surprised that anyone would!!

    If you have a lot of sinus problems, a MyPurMist is a great relief!

    Miz Pat - Sorry you have sinus issues too. I'll have to look those up.

    VS - It's the pits, isn't?

    Ima - Yep! It makes no sense (cents!) at all.

    CB - Um wow. ... I'll have to look more into that, but my eyes bugged out at the price. But if it really works ... might be worth it.
