Irish Banking Institutions
God, no wonder these guys are going under. They are so stupid and rigid. My Permanent TSB Credit Card interest just went up 2% from my original agreement with them. I rang to say I was thinking of switching to Tesco Credit Card (0% for first 6 months) unless they returned to the better rate. Nope, they said, they would rather lose a customer who runs up her bill and pays monthly interest. Of course we do know that if I was mega rich I'd have a preferred interest rate; but, as in the airline business, it's not the minority of the rich clients who keep things flying, but the moderate income earners like myself. The idiocy of greed over reason.
