Worst Credit Card Experience Ever

I recently was credit card shopping as I had a lot of upcoming expenses and wanted to get a new card that offered 0% APR introductory rate. I chose the Delta card with a current promotion, but after one month I was charged an outrageous interest rate. After calling every few weeks, for months, I was finally able to get the case reviewed, but after all of this it was denied. I was stuck paying very high interest amounts on a card a didn't even necessarily need and nothing was done about it. I paid off the card ($25k) in a few months and am cancelling the card. I wasted time and money on this card and will never get another American Express card after this experience.
