Credit Card Commercials

There have been some pretty funny credit card commercials. One of my all time favorites was in the mid to late 90s where Jerry Seinfeld was pumping gas and is trying to achieve the perfect pump. The perfect pump is filling your tank until it is pretty full and then stopping on a 0. For instance you are pumping and then you stop on $20.00 would be considered a perfect pump.

Anyways the premise of the commercial; Jerry is pumping and he achieves the perfect pump, but when he removes the nozzle he accidentally pumps a little bit of gas and losses the perfect pump. All is not lost though since he pays with his American Express he doesn't have to worry about the change.

Another commercial I liked was the Capital One, What's in Your Wallet. Recently I saw a Capital One Card Lab commercial. The commercial is decent in my opinion, but it doesn't really have the stand out factor that really catches your attention.

American Express Blue Review

I finished writing a review for the American Express Blue card the other day. I don't want to repeat myself too much so I will just say this; it has an excellent introductory APR offer, a decent interest rate, and a mediocre rewards program. If you are interested in reading the full review you can check it out on squidoo. Except now squidoo is shut-down and my review is lost.
