    4.5B. Oh, that's just what 88,105 Oregonians make in one year put together (If ALL of those people make the median 51.075K). Pocket change really...

    Can't say I didn't see this coming, it's been in the rumor mill for a while now. Kinda crazy. I have a Club VISA card as well, and they are selling their rights to Capital One. I haven't heard much about them, just hoping that nothing needs to change. Honestly I should probably just consider changing cards anyway, find something that's more practical for me, since I haven't really shopped at Cabelas since I left my job there.

    Dunno where you are at now, but they might roll that puppy over to "market rates" which can be in the ballpark of 30% interest nowadays. Keep an eye on it, pay it off and cancel as necessary, lol

    If you bank at a credit union (basically everyone should run away from the big banks), they generally have good rates (dependent on history, D to I, and all that good stuff of course)

    I've been with a credit union that my family's been with since I can remember, which has been great. I was planning on applying for a credit card with them prior to getting the Cabela's Club VISA, so I might look to go with them again. Ultimately I'd like to get a good card that is worth using, but seems like they all have their catches one way or another.

    Worse case scenario i'll be dumping them and trying to find another card. I've got about $15 in points that I need to spend before I cancel it, but I only use it to pay a bill here and there and always pay it off immediately. It's helped me build credit the last couple years at least.

    All CC are about the same. Get Amex Blue for daily purchases and REI MasterCard(or an airline card) for the rest where Amex is not valid.
