"Character" is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.
As Slim Pickens said in "Blazing Saddles", what in the wide wide world of sports is going on here?
Did I stumble into the Bodda Getta by mistake? I'm pretty sure I didn't. My screen does say Bama OnLine. So what's the deal?
Bama fans are supposed to be smarter than this. Okay, maybe some are just college kids. So let me explain it.
As one poster said, pay the $100 with your credit card. Now you might ask, why would you want to pay the interest? I'm glad you asked.
Let's say you have a really crappy rate. Let's use 24%, just to make it a nice round number. 2% a month on the unpaid balance.
You pay $10 a month. That's what you're currently paying Lucky, right?
The first bill comes in January. No interest yet. You pay $10.
Your February balance...the $90 previous balance, plus 2%, is $91.80.
You pay $10 again.
You do this every month the rest of the year.
Not only will you get your precious text alerts...YOU WON"T HAVE TO PAY IN DECEMBER!!!
That's right. Instead of paying $120 a year, $10 a month for 12 months, you'll pay the balance of your credit card charge of in only 11 months.
That's right...by paying Lucky $10 a month for 12 months, you're effectively paying him a HIGHER INTEREST RATE than the credit card charges.
Microsoft Excel...it's your friend. Don't take my word for it...makes a spreadsheet yourself. Start with $100, deduct $10 a month, then add 2%, do it for 11 months and see what you end up with.
