HSBC (Household Bank) Rush Payment Fee Ripoff Due Date Salinas California
*Consumer Comment: Columbus Day?
So here I am paying my bill 4 days before the due date and yet because their system is so screwed up and archaic I'm forced to pay $15 to avoid late fees.
On the evening of the 4th I called HSBC to see if they would be willing to waive the $15 processing fee due to how the weekend fell and such. I was told I'd have to call back and talk with a Supervisor. I agreed to do so.
On the morning of Friday the 5th I called and spoke with Erin, a supervisor and was told that it could not be waived because it's a "processing fee" and then she proceeded to tell me that this was my "error" and it's my fault. Yes, my fault for trying to pay my bill 4 days before the due date. After back and forth arguing over it for at least 15 minutes she still would not waive the $15 processing fee.
I think this practice is really uncalled for as I have no other credit card that tries to pull one over on me for paying on time.
I plan on paying off this card, tearing it up and will not do business with HSBC or Best Buy again with practices like this.
