Baraclay Bank/Airtran Visa Complaint - AirTran Visa Rip Off

Review by Average Guy on 2009-10-08
Applied to this card because I got a mailer stating that there would be no 1st year annaul fee plus you supposidly get a free round trip with your first purchase. Well, I don't know about the free round trip, but the first thing I see on my statement is a charge of $39.00 for the annual fee.....You just can't trust anyone anymore. I can't believe that Airtran does not research the companies that represent them. I'm cancelling the card!

You're right about not trusting anyone. Everyone seems to be out scamming to make a buck.

I went through the same thing with them this past summer. I didn't even really want the card, so when I got the bill I just called and told them to reverse the charge and close the card. They immediately changed it to a no annual fee card, and gave me some other perks.

Last month I got the letter from them about the rate changes and higher fees. Since I had still never used the card, I called the opt-out line. Once you choose to opt out, they can't give you the big pitch about why you should stay. If you are able, I would suggest doing the same; opt out and get away from those bottom feeders.
