    As of the new year I have been inundated with credit card offers. At least 15 different banks and stores have offered pre-approved credit cards. The lowest amount of credit offered me has been $8800 and the highest amount was $50,100:)cuckoo:).

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    No, but the funniest thing is, the bank I used to work for raised my credit limit 1200 after they canned me.

    Yep and they get shredded! We had 3 credit cards and almost all paid off, they were cut up last year. This house hold won't own a credit card ever again.

    I have shredded them as well. Some people will not do it though...thinking that if they run the cards up and lose their jobs, Obama will bail them out....how did Americans become so irresponsible with their finances?

    Of course you have to mention Obama. Of course. Did you know, today, the damn light turned from green to red. I blame Obama as well.

    This is why some of us think that Americans think Obama will bail them out.
