svetlana's review: Callout Comment Terms and conditions state that Platinum Plus Credit Card will be with 9.9% APR and Preferred account with 15.99%. I was approved for Platinum Plus with 9.9%, and received one, but only instead 9.9% I received 15.99%. And now nobody can give me an answer - why in their Terms Platinum Plus has 9.9%. I actually had one answer that they don't know anything about this lower as 9.9% APR. Here I am - I have to cancel the Credit Card, because I think if they can't keep their word and change conditions anytime when they want - it's a very bad business.
Only one what I can say - their Customer Service is very friendly, polite and nice to talk to.

Remarks Hi Svetlana, there are many factors that can be the reason why you received a higher apr rate but the main reason will be how the creditor rated your credit background. When you apply for a card at a low apr, it does not neccesarily means that you are guarnateed to receive it. That is the lowest they will offer to those with good-excellent credit backgrounds. Don't quote me wrong or anything, I am not familiar with your credit background and I am not stating that you have flaws in them, I am just giving an example of why you probably received a higher apr. Congrats on your approval and I am so sorry to hear that you went through such crisis with them.
