  • I believe all/most of them were MBNA. This was almost a decade ago, and for all I know they may have been the only significant affinity card shop back then. I really can't say much about the company one way or the other as I'd not made any significant use of the cards.

    I'd gotten sick of getting credit card offers in the mail. It seemed that every day at least one offer would arrive. Most of the offers seemed very familiar, as though the compaies had nothing better to do than spam my mailbox every week or two. I thought maybe I could get them to stop by accpeting their offers.

    For about two years I accepted every credit card offer I got via mail. They did finally stop sending offers after I'd collected a few dozen cards over about a year and a half

    My wife and I would joke about charging them all up (to a sizable six-figure total) for cash advances and/or jewelery or other liquid assets and then starting a new life in another country.

    Never happened. When we started talking about buying a house one day (three or four years back), I spent a day canceling the cards. I never paid a penny of interest on any card, or even used the majority of them so there was no ill affect on my credit.
