Credit Protection???

Every credit card is pushing this LIKE crazy! Wamu is .79 cents per 100.00 is it worth it? I told them I was self employeed and he read a cue card twice to me saying if I gave them a letter from a third party such as my accountant... right now I am the accountant.. he reads again the same thing!
Hummm I said no three times and he kept going... just wondering if I made the right desision... Who eles is doing them, who isnt and what is your take on it?

Re: Credit Protection???

I look at it this way-
 
They might cover your min payment - 2% for most lenders-
 
So IF you carries a 1000 balance the Fee your be 7.90 every month
You min payment is $20 
 
So if you just saved the 7.90, every 3 months you would save enough for 1 months payment- 
 
Simple way- it's a rip-off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
