Tricks, lies, and 0% interest.
I save all the *decent* 0% offers that come through my mailboxÂyou know, just in case. Well, Saturday, I got a "0% for life" offer. No balance transfer fee. Saw the asterisk next to the "0% for life"; searched through the fine print to see the detailsÂand found out that the 0% transfer will expire in September 2005 unless I 1) use the card twice in September and 2) spend at least $50 a month on the card every month for as long as I have the card. And of course all monies I pay will be directed to the 0% balance first.
Extortion, thy name is VISA. I canÂt believe this is legal.
