WAIT! Don’t cancel your cards before you read this

PC Master CardI have been receiving emails from my credit card company that I find irritating. Not saying that this is the one, but I wanted you to see a card.

YES, I know I have to pay you, but some of them don’t tell me how much I owe. So, I have to log into see the balance…grrr.

I have 3 cards and well, I only need 2, one for business and one for personal. So, my PC MasterCard has to go. So, I called the company asking them what I had to do, but before she would close it, she said…”Did you know you had $190 accumulated in grocery money?”….Ahhhh, NO!???

It’s weird, I get emails regularly from them telling me my bill is do, but nothing about the points I accumulated and what I can use them for. She said that if I cancelled my card today that i would not be able to use the grocery points. So, what do you think I did? I said “I will gladly use them first and THEN, I will call you back and cancel the card”. Thank you.
