    Post ‘Flabbergasted': Chase Bank forgives all credit card debt for Canadian customers

    ‘Flabbergasted': Chase Bank forgives all credit card debt for Canadian customers. Chase must really have wanted to escape Canadian regulation?

    I have two cards with Chase. I pay them off monthly, although the Wife makes that hard.

    Cheaper to take the hit, which they might be able to write off a portion of, then to comply with regulations? Lucky Canadian customers! Now lets wait and watch if they jack fees and interest rates on US customers to help off-set....

    If that last part comes to be, it won't get me in the wallet as I carry no revolving debt on principal. Credit Cards are an emergency money source or used for convenience on vacation for me. I like the purchaser protection they add when you're ripped-off by a vendor too.

    But some people are good at borrowing within means and paying it off profitably. THose who don't are limiting the choices of those who do.
