In America I don't know if you could pull that off. However we do get "free stuff". To entice people into using the cards they give you things such as airline miles, Hotel and resteraunt credits etc. We have a Sony card that gives us points towards Sony stuff. i keep getting them to up my limit and then max it out with needed buisness purchases every month. Then the company writes me an exspense check to cover it so i'm not paying any interest. In the last 16 months I've gotten a 27" and 32" TV, A CD player , dvd player,clock radio, portable radio, and a Playstation and some games About 2100.00-2300.00 bucks worth of stuff FOR FREE!!!. Now I'm working towards a big surround sound system. I think this will be killed soon though either buy the card companies or the IRS. If you think about it that's like a 2grand TAX FREE raise!. Think they'll put the brakes on this soon.
