    Looks like a pretty good deal to me and it looks like it might be an easy back door into a citibank card too.

    HOLY BOOK BINDINGS BATMAN!!! 22.9% APR?!?!?!?!

    How soon do they want your first born? And if you change your mind later, can you exchange your own soul for said First Born??!?

    No thanks! I'll continue to go to Borders, buy a Latte, choose a book, read as much as I can, note my leave off page, then continue where left off with same book a few days later. All for the price of a Coffee. :)
