My mailbox had a sleek black envelope in it today. Curious, I opened it to see what could be lurking inside (high dollar coupons!! free samples!!!?).
It was an application for "The World's Most Prestigious and Versatile Credit Card" that only 1% of the population carry. Hmm. What are the perks? OOH, a credit card made of carbon (whoopdedoo.. I'm made of carbon, my dog is made of carbon), 24 hour concierge service, and a nice annual fee of only $495. Well, for only $495- heck why not make it an even $500 since that special 1% is dumb enough to buy a credit card?
Me? I'll stick with the card that pays me back 1%. It may not be made of carbon (or platinum or playtex or spandex whatever) but it does have a nice Seurat painting on it.
I am planning on re-using that nice envelope though. I unglued it and flipped inside out and it's ready for a homemade card - Thanks Visa Black Card.
