That's a surprise they must really like you. When I dumped mine the CSRs were only too thrilled to close them and never asked why 10 seconds later they responded closed thank you sir! You'd have thought I gave them 100 rupees or something.


Can't say I've EVER regretted losing them. Not for a second. The only person more thrilled than them at closing it is me at being rid of them. I mean let's face it once you get better and move on, what the hell do you need a loser outfit like them for except to mock their script reading joke CS.


I seldom get those offers. I've gotten one in the last almost year, from Citi, a very unimpressive offer. Even if I wasn't going for a mortgage soon, I couldn't see a place for it in my wallet.


As far as junk mail goes though man is it overwhelming and obnoxious. It's like someone has littered your mailbox, and it's a non-stop barrage of armfuls of the garbage every single week. Here you need a trash bag to hold it (and that's right where it goes). Anyway we can get back at the people who do that, I'm all for, cost them money, let them pay for junk going back to them. I'm just returning the favor, you don't like it, too damn bad I guess, blow me, I don't like the fact I have to deal with the crap you send to my mailbox that I didn't ask for and don't want either. Life's a bitch I guess.

They're not quite as eager for me as they are for you- yesterday, I got a 6 month 0% interest offer from them alongside a CSP offer from Chase.
