I know I'm a fool because I wanted to by $3500 worth of AMD last year when it was selling at $15 and I let my so called professional investor talk me out of it. Now I'm with Ameritrade. My Question is this. I don't like credit card debt and I have always paid in full each month. Last year I had the need to pay back a $7000 loan to my retirement fund and I temporarily put it on a visa. (I get miles for that). Before I could pay it off I got an offer for a new card balance transfer at 2.9% for five months. I decided to do it. When that time was up I got an offer for another card balance transfer at 1.9%. I also took that. I have the cash to pay off the card but I keep getting these low interest balance transfer offers. I am making large payments on the balance but I am also making considerably more interest on the cash. Am I crazy or just still a fool?
