Ever been given a different rate to the credit applied for?

When you apply for a loan or credit card have you ever experienced being accepted, but being given a higher rate that the one you applied for (or a different card entirely)?

Thereís currently a parliamentary investigation into this issue; see the flawed credit system MSE News story.

In the last three years have you ever been given a higher rate than you applied for?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
