    Walmart CLD

    I doubt they CLD'd because you didn't carry a balance or as you say "owe them money". You were CLD'd for non-use. You didn't use the card.... why are you surprised?? Why am I surprised? I did use the card I just havent used it this year. If that is their methodology then close the account dont use the CLD bit because that to me serves no purpose they still are paying to maintain my account no? Dont give me the BS and jump all over me...Im really not in the mood and sick of some of the people on here who are nothing but negative...I guess I wont post here anymore....BYE!

    Walmart CLD

    I am really getting tired of these banks...I had a walmart card for like 2 1/2 years a mere $400 limit..I was gonna go there today and use my card which I havent used in a long time to get tires...I log in and they chopped my limit to a strange $124...I am just fed up I called and the guy says you havent used your card this year...yeah so? Bc I dont owe you money you decrease my limit? CLOSE it I told him..I am just finished with all these crazy banks..Forgive me for not being in debt to you, thats a good reason to lower my limit. I said I was going to use my card today but you just lost a sale so hope that works out well for all the customers you screw over...SO soon I will be rid of Amex completely too...who is next? hmmmm time will tell! stay tuned!
  3. Yes I am sure my clear card will be next...Well I had 51K with AMex...so I already lost about 26K...and assuming I lose clear thats another 10 they will likely cut off I have a 3100 balance on there with a 15K limit so I expect they will drop it to 1000 above my balance...I will have lost 36K give or take by then...I am really going to get whacked big time...I may be knocked into the very low 600's bc of this and will prob lose all my accounts..I have high balances on other cards...Amex may very well be the reason I file for BK down the road...I hope it never comes to that but it very well could if citi and chase come after me....
  4. Sorry Dena. I had the same experience last night talking to an AMEX CSR. All she could talk about was my EX CR and how my score was too low and new accounts (just 1 new account btw). She told me there was nothing that could be done and no chance of reinstating my CL. I calmly said "well thanks anyways, I will never use AMEX again and my christmas wish is that you go bankrupt, goodbye." LOL ....That is a good xmas wish...I honestly hope Amex goes bankrupt too..It would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...I find it strange bc when I used to call Amex their CSR's were top notch, always polite..always...The past 2 times I have called I have been met with hostility and rudeness and basically a we dont give two craps about you as a customer attitude..Something is going on there I dont know what but something is definitely up
  5. aww Thanks guys...I am hoping it doesnt get much worse...At least when Juniper cut my limits I was able to call and speak to someone in their credit dept who put my lines back where they were...Amex you cannot reason with at all...I mean all this guy kept talking about was my EX credit report and I kept saying to this bozo why did you give me cards 2 years ago then? He had no response to that just told me to clean up my credit report...I mean is he kidding? I really wanted to cuss this guy out but I restrained myself... I just wanted to add if you guys with an Amex have any derogs on your reports whether it predates the amex or not expect to get a CLD I think thats the criteria they are using...Anyone with no negatives I dont think has to worry all that much..altho this is just my theory...
  6. Yup they really suck...I am not surprised by this..I expected it..My score is going to take a hit big time from this..I will likely be Ratejacked by citi and chase bc of this..Im sure of it
  7. Well I think I am officially done with Amex..They slashed my Blue card last week and I just logged in and they slashed my starwood card to 1K over my balance My card went from 20K down to 9600...(How nice of them) I called of course, not expecting any resolution and I was met with the hostile CSR telling me about my EX credit report and how they will keep reducing my line as I pay it off bc of my EX report..I have a Tax lien (filed in 2002 and discharged) and a serious delinquency (BOA CO from 2003 long since paid off) Both of these events were there way before I got an Amex card in 2006 which I pointed out..I further went on a rant (merely to make myself feel better) and told the guy he should pass this info onto the high ups at Amex..I stated you know when you cut peoples limits down like you do you tank their credit scores which leads to ratejacking by other companies which in turn pushes people into bankruptcy and in the end Amex is simply screwing themselves bc alot of these accounts will become uncollectable and you have noone to blame but yourselves...I said have a nice day and hung up...Didnt help any but made me feel better...I am BT all my Amex balances and closing all my accounts..I will not ever deal with them again..They are pathetic at best...
  8. Toz...sorry to hear...They hit my Blue last week 16K to $1700 (583.00 balance) I paid off and closed...not worth the aggro...They have definitely gone over the edge, Im sure of it...I got my letter the other night..there were a whole host of reasons on there (none citing derogs or anything) mostly my payments were not high enough...(Last month I had a $15 min payment and paid $150.00) and this has been the case since I got the card ALWAYS pay 10 times more than I have to...Also some other bogus reasons including I used to much of my credit line..Lets see 500 bucks out of 16 grand? preposterous...all I can say is RRG!!!!!
  9. In your case since you only lost $500, I would keep it open...I lost aLOT so decided it wasnt worth me keeping it..You can always ask for a CLI later on but I doubt they would have ever restored my limit so I figured why bother.
  10. Thanks Tax..no worries I paid the account off and am over it..Now if they hit my clear or Starwood I will probably have to reevaluate my now calm demeanor...we'll see...
  11. Thanks all..I have managed to muddle through my day (still working actually) and I have to say I think that in spite of everything...I will survive the wrath of Amex...
  12. Sara I did ask that..I said what can I convert it to she said nothing it wasnt eligible...HUH? As if its a subprime card..its a visa signature card with a 12K limit...Did this suddenly become subprime? cause I just dont get it... OK Just to update**** I just called AGAIN...I was told the same thing. The SWA visa sig card cannot be converted..period...Perhaps this is something recent but since I was told the same thing 2 times I tend to believe it...I was told the system doesnt allow conversions for this card and to just apply for the one I want (as if I would be dumb enough to do that with 3 chase cards already)..The rep said this never happened to her either that she couldnt convert..baffling!
  13. Breeze you are just so polite as always...I unfortunately cant be that polite to OP so I will stop after I say WOW!
  14. Yup..maybe Amex will go bankrupt next...I have to say it couldnt happen to a nicer bank
  15. Thanks..Yea I know I have backups its just annoying when you are a good customer and get treated as if you arent...
  16. did this just happen last night?? Amex sucks
  17. Not when you are dealing with the devil...
  18. I wouldn't shop costco if that were the case - and would write to the CEO to tell them why i wasn't. Sam's takes mc and discover and has most of the same stuff for about the same prices. there is some place else i've been that is amex only, but i forget where. I won't close my dillards card, but i usually only use it at dillards and consider it a 'store card' (as is my target visa). Closest Sams Clubs is close to 2 hours away. I dont like costco and I like Amex even less..so no reason for me to ever get a costco amex..or any amex after last night...The more I think about it the more I feel like closing my other 2 cards..Its just a matter of time b4 they are hacked too..I wonder how many people have closed their amex cards over this? I wonder why they didnt cut me down to 1K on the card and thought I was worthy of $1700? I kinda feel honored..I had under a 600 balance they could have cut it to that.
  19. I should have called this the Amex on the warpath thread..Or perhaps the Amex is trippin but in a bad way thread...
  20. Agreed...Let the boycott begin...First it was the F/R fever..now its the CLD attack...enough is enough
  21. I called but I wasnt given any explanation..I just said to close my card and the rep could not have been happier to do so..Back in the day they would have offered you statement credits or something to keep it open. but today, nope...sure I can close your card...I told him if the lower my other 2 cards they will be closed as well and he just said I understand...that was it....Apparently Amex has huge financial problems...Thats my guess

    Thanks for the update...I guess I have to wait until November...Only a few more weeks..I WANT that petsmart card...
  23. Sorry this happened to you , Dena. They CLD my Amex Blue from $20,000 to $3600. I closed my card. Who needs this type of aggravation? Besides, I would be afraid to use it anyway. Exactly. You are afraid to use it and afraid to not use it. Afraid to carry a balance, afraid to pay off your balance..Who needs this? I never worry about citi or chase..I mean I am so over sitting there panicking over what Amex is going to do next. Now I just honestly dont give a hoot what they do..In the end they are only hurting themselves by driving away some of their best customers... Exactly how I feel about my Amex Blue. I don't know if I should use it or not, if or when I should make the payment or how much. And I just got the card back in August lol. My CL is fairly low, so I don't know if they will hit the lower CL holders at all. But I still keep checking everyday just to see. I am about to just call them and say TAKE IT, I CAN'T TAKE YOUR AMEX GAMES ANYMORE They are hitting everyone...high limits and low limits..see the other thread on here..last night someone with a 1K delta got cut to $600...How bad is amex hurting that they are worried about $400? pathetic if you ask me...I can see them worrying about my $16K but I cannot see the rationale of cutting a 1K card to $600..thats just assinine That's nothing. They took my Blue from $10k to $800. Went from my highest CL to one of my lowest. Oh I know I was just responding to the previous poster who was wondering if they would bother with low limits but noone is immune..Thats obvious...I see there are many that got hit...I was over on FW and lots of people there have had CLD's recently too...Go figure huh? They pick on the best customers....
  24. I will call them back later then and try that...thanks
