    I read about that. Bummer. I'm looking into the Starwood card Michael Coley mentioned. Anybody else have suggestions?

    DANG, that's indeed a shame. I had signed up as soon as you announced it and have been happy with the card since the beginning. I used it for a LOT of purchases, never carried a balance and enjoyed receiving a "cash back" check every quarter. I guess me not paying interest on balances didn't help add to their bottom line.

    My bank has been trying to get me to sign up (for the last year or so) for a similar card that they are offering. I suppose now is the time to take them up on that offer.

    No, I think I read another article (can't remember where) that said you just cannot charge any more to it. You will get time to pay off the account. (Unless things have changed since I read that article.)
