Card Times in New York Town

November 10, 2009

Do you have trouble with plastic?  If so, you might want to check out the joint reporting project that The New York Times has been doing for the past few months with FrontlineHere’s a link to the stories the Times has published thus far. The one from today, “A Squeeze on Customers Ahead of New Rules,” is particularly good.  It all leads up to the Frontline documentary The Card Game, which will air two weeks from tonight, Nov. 24, at 9pm (probably 8pm Central).  All this comes on the heels of yesterday’s story in The New York Post that outlined plans by Citibank to begin charging its customers $7.50 for every month in which their checking account balance dips below $1,500.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but for me, that’s pretty much every month.
