In the Wake of Sandy, Chase Bank Has Your Back
Just got this email from my credit card company, Chase Bank, titled "We're here to help you after Hurricane Sandy."
So in the week of the largest storm to ever hit the US East coast, Chase will grant me a one day extension (until Nov 1) to pay my credit card bills that are due Oct 31. No mention that playing into the decision is that due to downed computer systems and delayed paper mail they would be unable to process the millions of payments made on time anyway. So really this is just them looking out for themselves.
Earlier this week, we announced we will waive or automatically refund a number of fees through October 31st for our customers in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the District of Columbia. As the storm cleanup continues, we are extending those waivers through Thursday, November 1st, and to customers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
Absolutely pathetic. I terminate all business with Chase effective tomorrow. If my wife were a banker I'd be kicking her in the nuts at this moment.
