I just need a place to vent off some of this frustration. So after my night class last night (at Nicholls in Thibodaux), I noticed a few little pieces of paper underneath my windshield wiper. One was a FREE sub from Subway, and the other was a free large pizza from Pappajohn's. They said it was only valid for 3 days and available for college students only, and must have a valid college ID and License. So I on my way home I decide to stop at the Subway right by the school to get my free sub. The girl told me it ended at 8pm ( it was then about 9pm) and she told me how to go about getting the 6in sub the next day. Here's what I find is very messed up. They had a guy in front of Subway (prior to 8pm) with credit card apps. You had to fill out a damn credit card application to get the sub, or the pizza for that matter. I just find this highly ridicules for them to be promoting free pizzas or whatnot to broke college kids and forcing them to fill out a credit card app to redeem it. Sorry about my little rant, just needed to get it off my chest.

yeap, I remember when I started college, you got lots of freebies for signing up for credit cards. If you are smart and can use it wisely then a CC with a 200 - 300 CC limit can really help a college kid, but usually that is not the case. They end up with several with that small limit, and very high APRs.

Yeap, they got me like that too about 9 years ago. I managed to get into 8grand in CC dept before I was 20. While not working, with just playing and a little College mixed in it is very easy to get out of control. Add that to finally living on your own is a making for disaster.

I think that's why you needed to have a license with you to get the freebees

In my day, and that wasn't too long ago, the 80's, the only way they would give a student a card was if your parents cosigned. I had one it had a measley $500 limit on it. Thank goodness. Because I would have racked up some bills.
