Zodiac cards: Taurus
What a credit card for a Taurus might look like
TaurusCard: Nah, you'll never need it
Color scheme: Turquoise green with bull's horn graphic
Chief feature: Low credit limit
(April 20-May 19)
A credit card for solid, conservative Taurus? Don't be absurd. And yet your practical Taurean nature keeps whispering maybe, maybe just one card wouldn't hurt. Just for emergencies. Or places that don't accept cash. TaurusCard is that one card. With a thoroughly sensible $250 credit limit, no annual fee and 0 percent APR for 96 months, TaurusCard really is just like cash, only harder. In the unlikely event you ever actually use your TaurusCard, we'll send a free coupon for a lube and oil change with your statement just for the inconvenience of having to send us a payment.
