I also intend to accept another Discover Card offer at the end of this month for 0%APR, life, $15,000, no fee, $50/m minimum purchase starting in May.

Joel,
I recently took Discover up on a similar offer in the mail, but instead of requiring $50/month I am required to make 2 purchases on it per month. I am sure that they are banking on you forgetting to charge two times a month on that card, so I figure I will set up my cable bill($13.92) and Netflix($15.79) to use that card for autopay so that forgetting to charge on it is not a problem. My concern at this point is what will the interest be on the monthly purchases that I am required to make. Will they be charging me the max interest rate on those purchases, while the balance transfer portion is still 0%? And then on top of that the payments that I make will go mainly towards the 0% payoff instead of the monthly purchases that I am required to spend. I am required to start charging on this card in February, so I will find out then how the interest is charged. If you want I can let you know, otherwise you may have a big suprise come May.
