Credit cards changing to variable rates

Bank of America and Chase Bank, two of the biggest credit card issuers in the nation, say they're switching some fixed-rate credit cards to variable rates to manage costs in light of the sweeping new reforms to the credit card industry.

The interest on variable-rate credit cards will be tied to the rise and fall of the prime rate.

These changes will be effective starting in August 2009 for both banks.


What do you think about that?
