Is Barclays Crazy??

Got some checks from them yesterday that I can use to pay bills.

 

The kicker:

 

Now I can pay my bills with checks that have a low APR of 20.99%. Thats what I think it said. They considered this to be low 20.99%

Yeah, that's a good one.......And I'm guessing they would be considered a "cash advance" so interest would start accumulating immediately......

They sent me a check with the card they issued me. I quickly tore it up and threw it away.

Shudder to think all the card holders who may not quantify the real cost in advance and use the checks for the convenience factor.
