Nothing to say either way, but don't make the mistake I did. Saw an application for their "Star Trek" credit card at a convention. "Cool, a Star Trek card! All my friends will be jealous!"

%18.9 and a high balance later, "Damned Star Trek card..." I cut it up earlier this week.

I'm quite often given a "Payment Holiday" by them, which I Foolishly avoid. The very small print at the bottom of the statement says what the minimum payment has to be if you decide to Foolishly pay.

I wish I had found the Fool a few years ago. Debt sucks, but with the advice here, I'm formulating my plans for it's departure.
