Betray Me and I Get Bitter …


For those following my blog, I’ve been having a dilemma. What credit card do I pay a chunk of money to? Yesterday I chickened out and cancelled the payment to Credit Card #4 because I started thinking the money was better off going towards Credit Card #2.

And guess what was in the mail today? My statement for Credit Card #4. The buggers raised my rates up to 15.74% (up from 14.99%). Not a huge leap, but an increase. I did get something in the mail last month about the card now having a variable rate, but I put it in my “to do” pile and didn’t look further into it.

I’m a little disappointed. I’ve had this card for about 8 years or so, and it was the “steady eddie” card. It always has been 14.99% – until now that is. My other cards have pulled me through a loop, but not Credit Card #4.

If I sound like I am getting mushy here, I am. I feel like I have been cheated on by my credit card. After all of these years…

So, decision made. The money is going to credit card #4 because I don’t like feeling betrayed. Credit Card #4 – you are the weakest link…goodbye!

    Thanks! I just completed the transaction, and it feels VERY good. And, it’s going to get even better Monday – maybe even Friday if I’m lucky.

    There’s a tax refund coming with Credit Card #4’s name on it ๐Ÿ™‚

So, what do you think ?
