Here are a few points that were discussed:
Today, the Card Holder's Bill of Rights goes into effect and requires that banks give you 45 days notice before raising interest rates or changing your fees.
- For younger people, the new reform requires that banks may not market credit cards to persons 21 and younger unless they have independent source of income or a co-signer.
- For interest rates, they must offer the rate they advertise when you sign up for at least a year, or six months if it's an introductory rate. However, there are no limits to interest rates.
- For those people that pay their bill in full and do not pay interest on a balance, credit card companies may start charging inactivity fees.
Just some things to think about. Going paperless with many companies save you not only time, but money too. Yes, unfortunately, you are paying extra for the envelope with your bill weighing about one pound.
