The Banks Think I'm Immortal

Lucky me! I can either save $2.4 million, or live for 2,550 years!

We always pay off our credit cards each month. But some time ago (back before the “credit crisis”) we had a 1% cash-advance offer, good for the life of the balance. Sort of like nearly free money until we decided to pay it off. Even in this stupid, scary, weird financial market, I figured I could make more in interest or appreciation on that loan.

So now, with the new credit-disclosure laws, card companies have to include certain wording on their statements. We all know how humorous banks can be, but this is by far the funniest I’ve seen.
