    *fuck them!

    http://www.futonexpress.com/creditcard.gif'>

    When did the banks start to think that they are the Gods of men?
    And what makes them think they can jerk us around like monkeys?

    :heated: :heated: :heated:

    so why am I so mad?
    I head down to the [i]Bank of ***[/i] to pay my bill.
    Well I've got a [i]Bank of ***[/i] credit card, and a [i]Bank of ***[/i] bill,
    I'm standing at a [i]Bank of ***[/i] ATM and $250 in hand....
    but I cant fucking pay! [b]What the fuck![/b]
    are they trying to make it hard to deal with?

    Now I'm going to have to walk down there and deal with a teller
    on Monday morning to avoid being late with the payment.
    I swear that banking carters to soccer moms and doesn't give a damn
    about anyone who doesn't fit the suburban cookie-cutter mold.

    From now on I'm keeping all my money in a mattress.

    not always.

    on my main card (the red one) I can just go to any ATM of that bank,
    slip in the card and then deposit cash towards the balance. easy.
    I dont have an account with that bank, just the cc.

    grrr.

    why cant they all work like that?

    I thought you were trying to pay your cc bill with your bank card....which you cant do unless its hooked up first. if you put your cc into the same machine you could make payments straight to it. but my experience is limited to that OTHER bank (the one with all the hyphens) so I cant be too sure bout it

    here's the problem...

    the cc goes into the ATM.
    I sellect 'Bill payment' but it only offers 'from checking' or 'from savings'.
    The other one offers 'pay credit card from account' and 'pay credit card enclosed'.

    That's why I'm angry at the Light Blue guys and happy with the Red guys.

    comprende. I'd say go with the red guys. the light blue guys will screw you as much as we will. red has good rates. they are also running shit on the merchant banking end of things....much to our dismay. but thats a good indicator of service and rates, if the merchants will use them to get equipment and support, they must be easy to deal with.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I know that the LightBlue guys have gorged me!
    I mean my first transaction was a $120 cash advance,
    and then I get the bill for $129.50 Seriously... highwayrobbery.

    and you know by light blue I'm thinking of Underpressure and Smoked Meat.

    They always say that eliminating your consumer debt is the best thing you can do with you money.

    I'm trying my hardest, and might be free by July.
    Damn that's a long time. I'm really looking forward
    to the day when I pay off the entire balance and have zero left for me.

    I'm willing to be completely broke if it means totally out of debt.

    please make your payments! even if its just the minimum. cause if your trying to get a limit increase, or apply for a card, and we get that Equifax report back with a "collections" item listed it really hurts your chances. It reduces your "beacon score" unless you ofset it with valuable, stable assets.

    Banks suck. Debt sucks. Credit is dangerous.
    I get around most of these problems by using a more primitive form of consumerism, called "saving up enough cash until you can afford to buy it". That way I don't pay 18% (or more) extra for the item, and I don't go into debt.
    They should teach kids money management in school, like junior high and up. But of course there would be a big corporate objection to that curriculum. They want you to owe them.
