My wife or I would like to pickup a new CC with 0% interest. We just purchased a new home and are going to have some items to purchase. Our question is, should she apply alone, or joint, and what card do you all recommend for 0% interest that isn't TOO hard to obtain.

Personally, I can't reccomend Penfed enough. They gave me a good limit, and their credit products are great. I think they will give you a good 0% off the bat, but you'd have to check. www.penfed.org You have to become a member though.
If you should apply joint or not, I really couldn't speak to that.
