    Since you have paid, may not be able to get a waiver. However, no harm trying.

    Late payment charges will definitely be levied when payments are late, it would be a kind gesture if they are willing to waive that. Remember to pay on time next time.

    Late payment fees are able to be waived. Had tried before.

    As for annual fee well you can ask for waiver if they dun waive simple la just cancel the card.

    Applied for another card, if they want to retain customer they will waive it off. All my cards are waived off the annual fee.

    Yes, but you need to call before they charge it, to waive, and make sure they don' deduct your points for this, happened to me once

    Yes. All you have to do is to call up the customer service and say that you want to cancel the card due to the high annual fees.

    Most of the time, Citibank will waive the annual fees in order to encourage you to stay on as a cardmember.

    As for the late payment fees, even though you have already paid for it, you can always try to ask them to cancel it by calling up customer service.

    depending on banks. but usually late fees and annual fees can be waived but financial fees (interests) cannot.

    You can try it for about twice a year.. but any more than that, I think they will not. Based on what a friend told me.

    when you missed your scheduled payment, the bank will impose a Late Fee and Interest on the amount. both of these can be waived, but it's up to the bank.

    missed my payment while overseas. called the bank up and got both waived considering the amount is rather small.

    If the bank wants to, they can waive just about anything. I have asked them to waive the late payment fee, waive the annual fee after it was posted on the statement, waive the annual fee after I have paid for it.

    For the late payment fee, as long as you have a good past payment record, most banks will waive it if you put in a request.

    Waiver of annual fees is so common now, some companies like UOB even has it automated (press button, no need talk to officers), then send you back an SMS when it's "approved".

    Only exception I know is Amex, but even that has changed (got sent a mail with waiver for first year, which is a pretty good deal considering it comes with Feed At Raffles card)

    Totally missed out on one of my Citibank CC bill; only realized when they sent me a 'final reminder' notice yesterday for failure to pay for 30 days. Late payment charge is around S$100..
    Called in and asked for waiver, approved on the spot.

    I told the officer I really forgot to pay on time due to busy work schedules. She said she will waive the annual fees. Happen for all the 3 CC i have.
