Will credit card companies waive interest
Yes, you could ask them to waive your interest and penalties provided that you are seen as a valuable client to them. I always ask for a waiver since I always pay late but in full amount.
What percentage will credit card companies settle for
Credit card companies may settle for a negotiated amount equal to roughly 40-60 percent of the balance owed, according to the BBB. Credit card companies tend not to publicize settlements, so there are no hard statistics on success rates or settlement amounts.
Do credit card companies ever lower interest rates
If you currently carry a balance on your card and want to avoid incurring more debt, lowering the interest rate on your card can help. You can negotiate with your bank or credit card company to get a lower interest rate on your card.
