When using my USAir VISA card, I was given a sales pitch to apply for the USAir M/C. I fell for it. Big mistake.

Not only was there an $89 annual fee charged instantly to my new account (and this was no where on the application screen prominent enough that I noticed it) -- they did make prominent enough an offer to transfer a balance and earn 10,000 points.

"Earn" ??

Nope. I got a $180.00 charge for this. Again, no where prominent on the application screen was mention of this hefty $180.00 fee.

Barclays Bank and USAir M/C was not at all accommodating in understanding this concern and/or reconciling.

I've closed my account -- I refuse to do business with companies who are so underhanded that they slam you with surprise fees from the get-go.

I kept my USA Visa which I've had for years, and will continue to use it.
