I believe I was not the only one received this nice offer for AARP's credit card. The introductory benefits offered for AARP credit card including 5% cash back on all purchase for the first 6 month and 0% APR for the first 12 months. So I got the card and paying the card on time.
After I used the card for 5 months, all of sudden, Chase decided to revoke my card without any reason and failed to notifying me and forfeited the cash reward I have earned( all my other Chase credit cards too.） I had to call the customer services and they could not figured out why either. ANd the worst thing, Chase closed all my three other credit cards without any reason either, nor notifying me. After numerous phone calls and run and around, and inconsistent and invalid excuses. I was finally told they closed all my other credit card because of AARP card. They said I did not use AARP card as intended.So Chase had to close all my other credit cards. And Chase forfeited all my cash reward which I believed was the real reason for Chase to close all my Chase credit cards. My excellent credit history is ruined and caused me great inconvience to reset auto payments, etc.
I am a long term customer witn Chase. Bankers all know my by names. They told me the relationship between AARP and Chase went sour. And this was the real reason, taken it out on customer.
I do not know what kind of business relationship between AARP and Chase for this credit card business. But I feel they got my information from AARP and becasue AARP's endorsement, I accepted the card. Now I am poisoned by those "nice introductory" offer and got my credit ruined.
We are senior citizens and having great trust in AARP. But after what has happened, there is a shadow on AARP too. I have been upset since Feb. My blood pressure is very high. Chase refused to give me a letter saying I did not do anything wrong. (I always paid on time and in full too. Now all my accounts are 0 balance。）
If AARP does not respond my SOS. I want other senior members know about this.
