Credit card companies and banks are out of control with their increasing interest rates on loans and credit cards. They have nearly shut down money lending for many people while at the same time getting billions of dollars in bailouts. Your bank wants to increase your credit card rates. How do you fight back to reduce credit card interest rates?
Things You Will Needcredit card
Step 1To reduce your credit card interest rate call the credit card company or the bank that owns your credit card. If you have been late on a payment then ask the company to remove the late fees. A lot of people don't consider calling to do this, but most companies will remove a late fee as a courtesy. But, what they don't tell you is that your late payment may have increased your interest rates.
Step 2Ask the bank or credit card company if your late payment effected your interest rates. If you are lucky it did not, but this can be a repercussion for late payments.
If you are not satisfied with your credit card interest rates then request it to be lowered. You have more control over your credit card rates and fees than the company wants you to believe. Many banks and companies can be somewhat accommodating if the card holder asks for it.
