    I just paid my Providian card down to $0 balance (had the card 1 year). I called to cancel the card, and the retention rep offered me this:

    1. Abolish annual fee forever!

    2. Lower apr from 24% to 16%!

    3. Generous credit line increase(without a fee)!

    4. Upgrade to gold status!

    I took all 4 with a big smile on my face :0)

    That's a 4 bagger!

    Nice going!

    Call again in 3 months, ask for Retention & try to get a grace period.

    You are doing great guy!!

    Hey did you ever decide to apply for a Nordstrom card? As I recall, I believe you were at least considering it.

    Congrats. Way to go! I'm pretty surprised they offered so much to you in one call. Maybe they are starting to realize when they have a good customer? Well, I will be sure of that when they respond to my letter on better account terms. :)
