Re: CNN Money story about "Credit Cards From Hell"

I don't like it when cards get called out based on APR. I get the annual fee, processing fee, whatever fee... but really, the APR?
Almost any store card is going to have an APR of 25%+. That's a given. Don't carry a balance. Simple.
I wish they did an article with "Mainstream credit cards from hell". Some of these are so off-the-wall and I'm sure most "knowledgable customers" wouldn't touch those with a 10 foot pole... then again, there is a reason they still exist.
And why are all these articles nowadays making me click 9 times to read the whole thing! Argh!
