They constantly send me those bozo convience checks.Now inconvient of them?

You can request that they stop sending you the checks. It took me a few tries with various CC issuers, but they stopped. I just told them it was a security issue -- didn't want someone taking them out of my mailbox and going on holiday with them. Another good reason to buy a shredder as well.

Of course, after about a year, the company "forgets" and starts sending them again ("Reward yourself with transactions fees up the wazoo...you DESERVE it!") -- so I call them and ask them to stop again.

It's a fun little game...sort of like the "Congratulations! You've earned a PAYMENT HOLIDAY!"*) game we play with MBNA.

* interest will continue to accrue (evil laughter).
