by Vaughn Aubuchon

Here is a table listing the companies who have sent me direct mail credit card offers in recent years.

I was interested in just how many offers I had received, so I counted them.

After being beaten over the head by that nasty, obnoxious, teed-of black guy on TV for how stupid I am because of what I don't have in my wallet, they think I am interested in getting their credit card.
Their marketing dept. is INSANE.

Chase is the MOST AGGRESSIVE marketer, which fills me with suspicion. They look "hard-up" to milk me for my cash.

Counting all the options from each vendor is not easy. For instance, B. of A. lists the same 77 cards for both the "Student" and "Alumni" categories, although they are SEPARATE credit cards. The other companies also list the same card in multiple categories. Some credit cards having the SAME NAME, are offered in different categories, but with different interest rates, purposely adding to the confusion. I grew tired of trying to count the ACTUAL options.
