Should I take advantage of credit cards offered on campus?

High Interest Credit Cards

Beware of credit card offers on campus, especially when they give away free t-shirts, frisbees, etc. You`ll pay for those "free gifts" 10 times over with the interest and finance charges you get on the card. If you get a card, pay it off at the end of the month. Credit cards are not free money.
