Hi there,

I have a Signature Visa, opened June 15th. Statement cutoff date is June 4th. Will the annual fee be charged on the day of the anniversary or do I need to cancel before the June billing cycle starts?

Thanks!

Feedback from the call center, fee will be charged on day of anniversary. Tried to push for a reduced fee or any other incentive to keep the card but they didn't even blink. Mentioned the reduced earn rate and the response was "well, all your other cards will have the same issue". Fair point I guess.

Talking to myself here but maybe of value for someone. Finally got around to cancelling the card, was offered 5k bonus points or 1.5 points per $ on all spend until October 2017 or a free balance transfer. Politely declined and asked for a reduced annual fee - was directed towards a fee free card instead. Put around $20k on the card in the past year.

Yes, you should be able to (assuming you mean legitimately cancel, rather than threaten it and get to keep it).
