I received a 0% BT offer from GM MasterCard. I applied and was accepted...with a $500 credit limit. Next to useless as a BT tool, not to mention borderline insulting. I have not had a $500 credit limit since the very first credit card I ever got. I think my highest-limit card is $15,000.

I never even activated the card. I sent them a letter requesting cancellation of the account, and I told them exactly why. They must have thought I was stooopid. :-}

Thanks!
Joe
