Could they throw in Greenspan and make it a hat-trick?
#1 reason gas prices are high is that the dollar is down the crapper.
Irod, you need to learn to read and not try to put words into mouths. I never endorsed credit cards, quite the opposite. If you can't afford to buy something, wait until you can. Have you heard of the housing crisis? This mentality is what caused it. Not a bully, just my opinion.
Keep sipping the kool-aid. How about just saving money over said 4-8 week period and paying for said item without making said credit card argument? It's not that difficult.
What is up with layaways? People, if you can't afford to pay for it, don't buy it. Simple.
I don't understand all the thumbs down. $0 down was/is a substantial part of our housing crisis. Too many people with no skin in the game gambling then walking away when they didn't like the hand they were dealt.
