Another fun story along these lines...

My sister and her husband bought a new minivan this last weekend. When they went to pay for it, they put their $10,000 deposit on their Discover card and told the dealership that they would be back the next day with a $19,000 check from their money market fund for the rest of the car. The financing guy said, "Well, if you are going to finance $10,000 of this car on a credit card - I bet I could work up a better deal for you."

My sister said, "Oh, don't worry, we plan to pay that in full at the end of the month." She said the look on his face was priceless.
