Most of us have heard those stories about how cable companies, if pressured over the phone and threatened with a customer's cancellation of service, will offer up special deals / offers to retain the customer.
In short, I'm interested in knowing if one could achieve similar results with a credit card offer.
I have a credit card that gave me 18 months of 0% interest. There are no other significant benefits of the card.
My question is: Is it likely that if I threaten to close the card, they'll extend this intro period, if I ask?
I don't currently carry a balance, but like the option of doing so at no interest if anything comes up. This is the only thing that actually motivates me to keep the card open.
So I'm interested to know whether anyone has succeeded or tried this before (?), and what their results / experiences were.
