    I have been a silent observer on this board for nearly a year. I've found a lot of your information very valuable.

    Today, I finally got up the nerve to call the retention dept. for my Aria account. (I've had the acct for 8 months) I explained that I didn't "really" want to close my account, however, I think 23.99APR is a little hard to swallow. She offered to lower my APR to 19.1% and also gave me a $1000 increase.

    I would not have known this could be possible if not for the helpful souls on this site. Again, I thank you.

    Good work! I'm glad you were able to get the interest rate lowered. 23% is pretty outrageous!

    I'm curious to know, did you have any negatives (i.e. late pays, over-the-limits) in the last 8 months?

    Congratulations, Angel! It doesn't hurt to ask. The worst they can say is no, but as you now know, you can be pleasantly surprised. :)
