Two years ago Wachovia promoted their credit card with overdraft protection. In case you ever over drafted your account, the remaining money would be charged directly to your Wachovia credit card without any overdraft fees.
Today I receive a letter from Wachovia telling me what changes they will implement on June 1st, 2009.
Now they instituted an Overdraft Protection fee of $10.00 per instance. Can anyone please tell me why they need to apply this charge now? They would still receive money if a person didn't pay off their balance at the end of the month.
I don't understand how this cost the company $10.00 to electronically process the overdraft amount to their credit card department. Especially when it didn't cost the consumer anything for this protection for two years.
Shame on you Wachovia!

I love the Yankees but this stadium has pushed me over the edge. The best seats in the house are priced for the worst people in our society and in baseball. Why can't management develop the stadium with both type of fans at heart.
Make the luxury suites up in the top levels. The people spending $2600 don't care about the game. They care about status. Put all high level tickets up in luxury boxes with TVs, kitchens, and bars. Have a current player go up to their suite after the game to say hello and sign some autographs. When you pay $2600 for a ticket you are helping that players receive their overpriced salary anyway. Oh I forgot about camera time. Make sure sometime during the broadcast you show the luxury suites with the people so they can feel important. Remember rich business executives, it always feels better looking down at people.
For the field level seats only allow kids 17 years old and under. They wont start any trouble, and they will enjoy the game ten times more than any adult. Also the players would want to go over and sign autographs more because they don't feel people are asking for their John Hancock for eBay.
My Yankee game of choice is the Scranton/Wilkes Barre Yankees. For $14 dollars a ticket I can get lower level seats right where the action is and watch a high quality baseball game. SWB Yankees all the way! oh by the way they are 11-0.
