The Craigslist Credit Card

No, not a reality, but something I dreamed about last night and thought, how awesome would that be? I'm sure maybe one day Craig will figure out he can make a few billion dollars off his site by commercialising it.

Re: The Craigslist Credit Card

What would be the point of it?? It would be treated pretty much like any creditor does a store card, atronomical APR and lackluster rewards.

My question as well. Craigslist does not actually sell anything or take payments do they? So they could not offer a certain percentage off of anything. It may be a way for them to get more money, but I do not see why a consumer would have a need for it.

All I'm saying is that wherever lots of cash is changing hands credit is never far behind.
