Archive Observations: The Power of Choices
February 19, 2009

With the recession and credit crunch in full swing in November, it didn't seem very likely that credit card marketers would be all that enthusiastic about offering customers, or prospects, a wider variety of choices. Yet, two offers that popped up in the mail show that some were, indeed, quite willing to be flexible. Capital One's letter to a "valued customer"-mailed in a 4-1/2" x 9-1/2" OSE with a "DATED MATERIAL" notice on the front-puts the ball firmly in her court. It simply notes that she is eligible for upgrades to her card account, and directs her to a toll-free number "to tell us which free upgrade option is best for you": more rewards, lower APR or other improvements. No reply forms, buckslips or brochures were used in the crafting of this message (Archive code #550-329024-0811).
