USAA should waive interest charges on credit card balances if it "really wants to help" the membership. Job losses are going to skyrocket in the coming weeks, and not making money on the backs of folks who are suddenly out of work woiuld be a great place to start.

I can help you I have a USAA Amex. I was told yesterday that they will be doing a 3 month deferment. I call this morning at 0830 ET to be told it was submitted and I would get a letter in 7-10 days what was going to happen. So here is your list.
1. USAA is vague Can you not say what you are doing over the phone.
2. Why do you need to approve. Do you need someone to tell you that Covid-19 is affecting us.
3. Do you really need to check credit to see if they can do the payment.
4. If someone has no late payments in years why would they call you to resolve the issue.
USAA YOU ARE NOT CUSTOMER FRIENDLY.
We understand there may be instances because of the impacts of COVID-19 that members may find themselves facing financial difficulties. We encourage members who may be impacted to reach out to discuss how we might be of assistance, including:
• Special payment arrangements on auto and property insurance premiums and waived late fees
• Special payment arrangements on life and health insurance policies
• Waived and/or reimbursed deductibles or co-payments for Coronavirus-related testing for members who have USAA Medicare supplement plans
• Special programs for consumer loans and credit cards

Why do I feel this way? As a 40 year member, I experienced rate increases on my auto insurance every 6 months. All it took was an hour to shop around for me to find auto insurance 30% cheaper than USAA for better coverage. So much for USAA's loyalty to me for 40 years of paying USAA.
As USAA's all out drive to increase membership under Stuart Parker's leadership, USAA's auto insurance rates became less competitive and the customer service went down the toilet. (just look at the posts) Maybe, instead of increasing membership, USAA focus should have focused on its core values to provide excellent insurance at rates no other company can beat and superior customer service. To me, when USAA lost it's focus, USAA became all about USAA and no amount of commercials can change that. I wonder what General McDermott would think of USAA now if here were alive? USAA really needs a General McDermott to put it back on course. However, I do not see that happening.
