Now as much as I LOVE the eye-candy at Lowes (Power tools? Check! Appliances? Check! Building Materials? Check!) we usually use our debit cards to pay for things and I AM NOT tempted to use this card other than to build some credit with small purchases.

Tuscani, I find you guilty of threadjacking!

So the usual stories tend to be kids breaking windows or teenages speeding (sad this makes this paper, I know). However, the recent story had me laughing hyterically. It reads:"Indecent exposure: An officer saw a naked man and woman having sex on pallets outside Lowes about 2:45 a.m. June 24. The 27-year-old woman and 22-year-old man were cited for indecent exposure."

It seems common that places like Lowes, Home Depot advertise a lot to buy new $1000 - $4000 worth of appliances and apply for their credit card to get special financing or discounts but then they seem to give out tiny credit lines and waste the customers time. I need 3 new appliances next month but am afraid to apply and only get $300 and then get dinged for a new inquiry and account that won't help my purchase. Anyone else found this out?
