    Thanks for your concepts. One thing really noticed is the fact banks and financial institutions know the dimensions and spending behavior of consumers plus understand that most people max out there their credit cards around the getaways. They wisely take advantage of that fact and then start flooding the inbox and snail-mail box with hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers shortly after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that if you’re like 98 in the American community, you’ll rush at the possiblity to consolidate credit card debt and move balances for 0 interest rate credit cards.
