The World Best Credit Card

Check out the specs on this baby:
https://www.cfcapply.com/classic1mc/fbd-terms.htm

Oh and the credit limit is $35
Here is a summary of all the charges to be a proud owner:
Account setup fee: $99
Program participation fee: $89
Annual fee: $49
Account maintenance fee: $120 (charged @ $10/month)
Purchase APR: 19.92%
Authorized user fee: $30 (great! seems like $53 credit is a bit too much for a single person to handle)
Credit limit increase fee: $25 (and you don't even have to ask for it!)
Internet payment fee: $4 for each authorized internet payment.

Tell me about, the van just crapped up on me this weekend on route 66 heading to my VA digs. The transmission let go and I had the thing towed to Bawlmer for three hundred smakers. I am expecting another two Ks to make it road worthy. I am guessing I will have to put off the attic insulation purchase I had planned for this fall. Such is life.

Too bad you didn't leave it in that alley a few months ago. You'd be money ahead.

Not really, it still shakes when I hit the brakes but it's drivable and right now we will use it for low speed city driving to haul the kids to school. I am going to pull the Rx7 out and drive it to work.
