Re: What causes the "app itch"?

For me the app itch gets really bad when ever I am faced with a large purchase. I am usually able to hold out on it, most of the time, till I can save up enough till I can PIF. However, there are time when I need the item ASAP and I will start looking for a CC with a promotional APR Smiley Happy
