    Thanks for letting us know Propoholic.

    The thing is - most families are stretched and with the Budget more than likely announcing the rise of GST - the Banks are timing their marketing perfectly. An extra $6K would be nicely welcomed by many....and those who accept are the ones who are more than likely up to their eyeballs in debt already.

      I imagine there's 50,000 others who have been sent the same letter.
      As soon as I receive one of these letters it gets ripped up immediately!

          banks, like landlords

          want to have perpetual revenue streams

          a landlord, put his money down, buys a house and gets a perpetual revenue stream from the tenant

          a bank, offers it's depositors money to it's borrowers, and gets a perpetual revenue stream from the interest payments

          land lords try to up the rent to get more money

          banks try to increase the interest rate charged and also the amount borrowed to get more money

            They increase your limit so that you can get more in debt and pay them more interest. No free money in it for you!

            ANZ used to send out "we're increasing your limit; let us know if you don't want us to" letters. Very annoying.

              It is if you pay the full amount owed each month.
