Our Mattress Card was reported as a revolving account. I am not sure if that will be helpful, though, since it is a totally different type of account.If you don't get any responses on the forum, I would call their CS and ask. Never hurts.

I think getting future withdrawals are rather expensive (although I should dig out the agreement to confirm) I needed the money at the time and it was the best option. I do not plan on tapping it again. If you need the money go for it. If you don't . . . maybe not.

I have a Wells Fargo Cash On Demand Account ( $7,000 Limit ). Basically, its a personal loan that they issue you via an ATM Card.
However, what I like about it is that they don't give you a check for the amount that you are borrowing which instantly putting you into debt for whatever your credit limit is and then having monthly revolving payments.
Basically, when you want to access cash you just go to any ATM and withdrawl it. Be careful, if you don't use a Wells Fargo ATM you will get charged an ATM fee. Be advised, each time you do withdrawl cash you will be charged 3% of the your withdrawl.
You can also access cash by calling them and asking them to deposit available funds for your credit limit to your checking account. This is for large amounts such as $1,000. You obviously can't withdrawl $1,000 from an ATM. Again, you will be charged 3% but by having them do it it can take a few days.
They also have access checks that you can request and use but again remember the 3% fee.
This card comes with a very high APR ... we are talking probably in the high 20% which is the reason why I don't use it much but I do like knowing that I have $7,000 available to me.
I used it about 2 months ago ( $500 withdrawl ) to help defray the cost of my getting a new garage door ( $890 ) but I had no choice as my old door was practically falling apart and could have damaged my vehicle or killed somebody should it have decided to fall at any time.
Bottomline, this card is worth it, just be careful and don't get too high of a balance because it can take forever paying it off with the high APR.

How is this different than a Balance transfer? I could have Citibank put up to $11.3K directly into my bank account and pay either 0% until March 09, or 4.99% until it's paid off (BT fee is 3%, max of $99).
I personally took the $11.5K at 3.99% from Chase (3% BT fee, max of $75) to pay off my 9.24% car loan, but I'm still waiting for the check (since October 1), so its not really "on demand," you need to plan it out.
