Providian has been good to a lot of people. My one beef with them is their high interest rate. It has been over 6 months since I used them and still no low rate offers.
Profit from the experience.
I concur. I have had a very positive experience with Providian. I have been with them for over 4 years. I can't remember what my starting limit was (approx. $500). It has since increased to over $6,000 & my interest rate is 16% (this includes cash advances). I can withdraw up to $500 per day for advances & it is only limited to my available credit (I never use this though). Customer service has been very cordial & helpful whenever I have called. They have also waived annual fees. I know some people have had problems, but I never have. Experiences with ANY company is only as good as their customer service representatives. I work for a major telecommunications company and believe me, there are many representatives who sincerely attempt to help customers everyday, but unfortunately you always have a few bad apples in the bunch. Providian has there negatives, but what large credit card company doesn't? Overall, I have been very satisfied. Good luck to everyone!
Dean and Miles,Did Providian charge a fee for credit increase?
I called them after they raised me to a gold card and raised the limit to 6000. They were
"at first" well we don't usually do that. I asked to talk to a credit supervisor and he lowered my rate by 5.5 %. I have always had a good experience with them.
Not too sure about the others, but some had a fee and others just showed up on my monthly statement, stating due to my good payment record they had raised my limit.
Most increases were at no charge. They just apppeared on my bill with a message stating my limit was increased for "excellent account maintenance". A couple of the larger increases had a fee attached, but when I refused to pay for the increases & told them I would close my account, they completed manual adjustments. I would not recommend this step unless you are prepared to actually close your account. They may call your bluff. I also think waiving the annual fee, lowering the interest rate & large increases without a fee are based on your overall credit report (which most credit card companies monitor regularly). I was also upgraded to the gold card so this may also be a deciding factor. I know that my credit has improved tremendously & is almost perfect (alot of hard work!). Hope this helps. Good luck!
Yes and no...
They increase the credit limit at regular
intervals (3 months) by several hundreds,
free of charge.
And they offered me a 1000 increase for
a $99 fee, which i declined.
If you have patience, you'll get there
eventually, so i don't see why anybody
would want to pay that fee...
Is this the Aria card? Or does Providian have another card?
No charge if u decline the off
No charge if you decline their offer and take whatever they offer you automatically. I took only whatever they automatically inccreased. Recently, they want to offer me $1000 more with $49 fees, I declined the offer.
RE: No charge if u decline the
My Son has had great experiance with Providian. He's had the account for over a year now with out any problems.He alsways pays more than the minimum, and always a few weeks before the due date. He started out with a credit line of $500 and is now well over $2,000 and has never been charged a fee for any increase. I think it's better not to give them any money for these fee's, you'll still end up getting the increases you deserve with out all the extra fees.
RE: No charge if u decline the
From posts above ,Providian increases credit limit much fast some prime bank.I have Fleet card and you can require limit increase online.But it states very clear you can apply limit increase only every nine monthes.
