    The player plus and vintera models are so good you don't HAVE to buy american.
    However, it's tough to drop 1100 on a mexican fender.

    I had the brad paisley tele on day 1, but then eventually moved it on. I think I got it at 1150, but it was Brad! Now they're asking 1500!

    Crazy!

    They were going to IPO IN 2012, but pulled the plug.

    Unless you increased the amount of the auto-pay, all that does is prevent you from being late.
    If you only make the minimum payment, you'll have only paid off 25%-50% of the balance, and then you get hit with ALL of the accured interest from the original purchase.

    If you already had a balance, the payments go to that first, THEN they start going to the promotional balance.
    That balance has to be absolute ZERO at the end of the 6/12/18/24 month promotional period... check your account balance and make sure the remaining automatic payments are going to be enough to bring that down to zero, because the minimum won't do it.
