Home Depot - Interest on Promotional Purchases
Dishwasher - Complaint
OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA -- The first thing is I bought a dishwasher in December 2011 but didn't realize it was on a no interest for 12 mos promotional purchase. Granted I have a large balance with HomeDepot so I would have chosen not to take the promotional rate.
When I got my statement this month January 2013 I had an additional $94.00 interest charge because the promotion had ended on 1/6/2013. My complaint is from January 2012 to January 2013 ONLY $25.00 of my payments for the year had been applied to my promotional balance I have other credit cards that have promotions and when I make payments that payment goes towards the one promotional purchase that is getting ready to expire. I would have rather paid the interest each month for the 12 months than to get an additional $94.00 which put my account over the limit.
I am getting ready to pay this account off and I can assure you I will not open it back up.
