    My Chase United Milage Plus Credit Card is now a year old. The $60 fee just came due. I called to cancel it. Was switched to retention specialist. They credit account $60 to cover the fee. I was not looking for that, but I guess I'll keep it open a little longer, since it is not costing me anything.

    I have the same experience with my CO credit card. They gave me a credit for the annual fee when I called.

    Have you been heavier users of your cards? The $85 annual fee for my CO MC is due now, but I am wondering if they will make me a similar offer as I have not used the card much. But I've been using my Chase PC Visa a fair amount.

    I charge about $2,000 each month on the CO card. When I called, the agent did look at my usage before waiving the fee.

    Thanks for sharing. That would explain why they want to keep you.

    I have Not been a heavy user of the Chase United Card. I applied a year ago mostly for the bonus points. I do have another Chase card that I use more. I didn't ask for the statement credit, I just called to cancel. I they offered , and I don't see a down side, except that this leaves me with 3 Chase cards.

    Good luck. I have heard stories of CSRs just saying OK you are canceled , Bye. YMMV
    But if you just signed up for the bonus , go for it .

    Yes, when I called to cancel my Chase UA MP card, they just cancelled it for me quickly. I have heard of Citi offering retention (and I've received), but rarely Chase.

    When I called, I asked if the annual fee could be waived without saying that I wanted to cancel. But, if they hadn't waived it, I would have asked them to cancel it since I now have a BA credit card.

    I agree that Citi almost always tranfers to you retention.
