As some of you may already know or already be affected by it, many credit card issuers, including Bank of America, MBNA, Citigroup, and Discover card will soon be raising their minimum monthly payments from around 2% to 4%. I wonder how many of you will be negatively affected by this change? I know that many people can barely pay their minimum payments as it is. I think that this policy will help a lot of people get out of debt by paying down their credit cards faster, but some people will not be able to keep their head above water. I would be interested to know what everbody thinks of this new policy. Thanks!
