Contact Creditors to Adjust Late Charges

I was ill for some time and unable to keep up to date with my finances and the organization of my bills. I incurred several late charges over the period of one year. I would pay my bills, but they would be between 1-4 days late and I would receive a late charge.

I wrote to each creditor asking if they would adjust these late charges as a one time deal. There were some who just did the adjustment and others I had to contact via phone. When I combined all the late charges that were adjusted it came to a total of over $500.00.

This was such a great break for me. It was worth the effort of writing and detailing each charge and the exact amount of days the bills were late.
