Credit Card Tips from the Military

Real Estate Agent with ADT Security Services

I received this link from a friend about secrets the banks do not want you to know regarding credit cards.  Some of these practices I was not aware of and I am sure that many others are not.  I just wanted to get this out there and hope it helps some of you and your clients.

The information is provided by the Millitary Spouse Career Center on and describes the problems followed by solutions.  The article is titled, "10 Secrets Banks Don't Want You to Know About Credit Cards."

I love the fact that credit card companies just randomly raise your credit limit without ever letting you know.  Suprise now your credit report that you have an excessive line of credit even if you never even get close to using it.
