Expires 10/09

Old credit cardOne of my credit cards expired at the end of last month. It happens to be the one I hang most of my automatic payments off.

My ISPs (internet access and web) emailed me to ask for new details. So too did Citylink and the after-school care people, so I updated all of those.

The Age just stopped delivering. Revising my details online didn’t seem to work. Eventually I rang them up and discovered in fact it was an unrelated problem — I’d suspended deliveries for a couple of days, and they thought I was still on holiday. Whoops.

Most of the charities and the health insurance people haven’t been in touch. I’ve got a bit of a case of CBF calling them myself, but it appears that Oxfam and Medibank have just kept charging regardless.

Will be interested to see what the others — Greenpeace, Amnesty, Salvation Army — do. If they can’t figure it out for themselves or ring me to ask, I guess I’ll have to get in touch with them myself.

  1. That’s a lot to have hanging off a credit card, esp the charity donations. You must have been paying a mammoth interest bill!

    Not necessarily – I charge EVERYTHING to my credit card, so that my cash stays in my offset account to SAVE interest off my home loan. I pay the credit card as soon as the statement arrives.

    Thus I use it heavily to make me money – I don’t pay a cent in interest or fees.
