Zodiac cards: Capricorn
What a credit card for a Capricorn might look like
By Jay MacDonald | Published: March 26, 2008
CapricornCard: Your cash sherpa
Color scheme: Dark green with garnet goat's horn
Chief feature: Generous line of credit
(Dec. 22-Jan. 21)
Your goal: The mountaintop. Your plan: Steady ascent. Your tool: CapricornCard. There's no room for error with a mountain to climb. One false step and you're a made-for-TV movie about OxyContin and broken dreams. You deserve better, don't you? But it's going to take more than stamina to reach the top. You'll also need lederhosen and a sherpa with local currency to get you over the rough spots. CapricornCard's generous $100,000 line of credit will be that sherpa. Sure, our 24.95 percent APR is a little steep. But so are your dreams. Reach the top with CapricornCard. Metaphor not guaranteed and may lose interest.
