<<A lot of companies offer 4.9% promminently on the front of the envelope and on the front of the letter, and then BURY in fine print under "Oher terms" on the back in 8 point type the fact that this wonderful rate is only good until October 1998. MBNA is one bank that I received a communication like this from lately. I find this practice a little deceptive.>>

FoolishVenturist,

I find this practice A LOT deceptive. It's tantamount to the tiny print that car ads use. You know, the stuff that no one can read and doesn't come to light until you're actually in the process of buying.

I agree with you. The details on credit cards should be upfront and clear. In fact, any company that doesn't follow the rules should be held seriously accountable.
