Do they typically give higher rates? Or are they extremely harsh on delinquent customers?

They are classically a charge card PIF only type company. When they started issuing more revolvers, they started to get cold feet when people were carrying balances, so if you revolve too much, they will take AA even though you haven't violated any terms.

Is this true even during the promotional 0% APR period? Because I do intend to take advantage of that promotion, otherwise what is it for? Maybe 50% util on a 7K line (overall util would still be at 10% with that).
