Pros: Glides Smoothly, Lightweight, Ink Dries Quickly

Best Uses: Taking Notes, Everyday Use, Professional Documents

Describe Yourself: Value Oriented

Primary use: Business

This is a great pen that I never would have purchased. I got a pack as a Freebie when I ordered Bic Correction Tape. It creates a bold line, is incredible smooth and doesn’t skip. It’s a liquid ink that always works and dries almost immediately so it doesn’t smear at all. It comes out of the pen looking very wet, but it dries as quickly as my Sharpie pens. I love this for everyday writing.

You have probably noticed in recent months that you get fewer credit card offers. If you do receive offers of credit, long gone are the 0% APR or lower interest rates offers. If you have applied for any credit recently, you likely found it harder to be approved.

Why is it when Americans are so in need of credit are banks less willing than ever to offer it in the form of credit cards? They say that now is the time for them to be prudent. Wasn’t one of the main points of the bank bailout – the American tax-payer funded bank bailout – that credit needed to be kept in tact?  After the banks were saved from going under they ceased funneling money to customers. They’re sitting on trillions of dollars of tax-payer money and now the Government has called for additional Financial Reform. Will that make the credit crunch even worse?
