Re: What's the Big Deal with APRs?
You just answered your own question...
Sure, it's okay to toss a creditor a bone with a few bucks in interest but say you carried a $2,000 bal on your BKE Card at 24.99%, then in a year, you'd pay something for like $500 in interest (very rough estimation). Just pif or as you are doing, limit balance carrying :-)

I love BKE btw! Was my first job ever in 2006, and I still have plenty of jeans to show for it... Ohhhhhh how I wanna get that BKE Card!! Lol but I can't app for any more accounts atm LOL!
