Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
While perusing the web the other day, I ran across an amusing story about a drunk guy at a Vikings game that was eating ice cream with a credit card. Someone nearby captured the moment in a photo and shortly thereafter it went viral.
Here’s the pic:
It’s kind of hard to see, but he is indeed eating ice cream with a credit card.
This got me to thinking… What’s the strangest non-financial thing that you’ve done with a credit card?
I’m pretty boring, so I haven’t done too much beyond using one to scrape frost from my windshield in a pinch. I guess I’ve also use one as a straightedge when drawing something. Oh, and I’ve used one to slice open the tape on a package when I couldn’t find a key (my usual go-to tool for such things).
What about you? What’s the weirdest (or most creative) thing you’ve ever done with a credit card? Have you tried to jimmy the lock on your front door with a credit card? Sliced food with one? Used one to play guitar? Eaten ice cream with one? Or something else entirely?
