Le théâtre de l'absurde

There's a reason they've been hit with multiple class action suits in the past few years

Outsourced AMEX Blue: You really screwed up your payment last month, so we jacked your APR.
Me: Wow, that's a drag. Is there anything I can do to get it back down to a reasonable rate?
OAB: Sure, how does 10.72% sound?

Chase, the Evil Empire: You really screwed up your payment last month, so we jacked your APR.
Me: Wow, that's a drag. Is there anything I can do to get it back down to a reasonable rate?
CtEE: No. Eat late fees, white boy!

ETA: As of a few minutes ago, Chase stopped being my primary creditor, and once I've verified that the balance transfer has been completed, they will cease being a creditor for me at all.
