Um, fool530, chances are your purchases between Nov. 27 and Dec. 25 would not show up until a bill sent January 1. Typically that bill would not be due for 3 weeks after that, so ordinarily you would pay 0.00% interest until Jan. 25 or so. So the offer is to give you an extra week!

I have to admit this is a better deal than the payment holiday I am offered every so often which keeps interest accumulating while I don't pay 2% of my balance, which is the alternative.

fool530, please don't think I'm making fun of you. For that sort of stuff, go over to the Fool Cafe folder and look at the Hype, Hysteria & Runkle board.
