Another poll: what's the worst/strangest incentive that ever induced you to open a new credit card?

For my DW: getting 10% off a $30 purchase at Mervyn's.

 

For me: a golf towel and 3 Top Flite golf balls.

Our local Wal-Mart gives out 2 liter drinks to those who sign up. They always have a table full of them with a clerk trying to sign people up.
