The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Selective editing

It's no particular secret that you can block most of those unsolicited credit-card offers with a phone call: 888-5-OPT-OUT.

Unfortunately, what I want is to block one particular card issuer who has cheesed me off more often than I'm willing to endure, without necessarily killing the flow from other issuers who might have favorable deals. I suppose I'm going to have to write them and complain.

At some point, inasmuch as I've overhauled my plastic portfolio twice in the last six years, I ought to sit down and write a summary of my experiences with the Big Boys in the industry — which is almost all of them now.

Tried the opt-out, and still they bug me.

Yes, you ought to write about your credit card experiences. So commence, already. Stop procrastinating or we'll have to start charging initerest.

Or we'll start losing interest. Whichever is funnier.

I'd be really interested to hear about your experiences.

Is the bad credit card company Capital One? I swear to God I feel like I'm being persecuted by Capital One. I must hear from them a minimum of twice a week.
