Dear TUG,
It is with great pleasure that we extend to you an invitation to experience the benefits of the American Express® Rewards Plus Gold Card, in addition to the ones you enjoy with your current Card. All with no annual fee for the first year — a $150 savings.1

With the addition of the Rewards Plus Gold Card,enjoy:
Even More Financial Control — Pay your bill in full each month with the new Card, or over time with your current Card.

Dear AMEX,
It is with great pleasure that I tell you to stick it where the sun don't shine. I decline your invitation to pay you $150 per year to use your credit card. I also don't wish to experience the flexibility of being forced to pay my bill in full each month with some new GOLD card. I find more flexibility in having the option to do so OR to pay the minimum for the next 30 years. Nothing like knowing you are paying $5,000 for a $50 pair of shoes. If I had to payback the very next month all the worthless crap I bought it might make me experience the benefit of not wanting to buy anything else. Where's the fun in that? Credit cards are all about free money doncha know?

Oh wait, I'm not an authorized user on this. They won't accept my note so I better forge Tug's signature as I often do.

2 people are laughing with me:
