Now you can take a trip the same way you can get a dinette set. American Airlines is advertising a promotion that allows you to buy tickets and wait six months before paying for them.
I learned of this offer from a new e-mail acquaintance. (Thanks, Steven. Not only did he send a link, but he didn’t call me any names, which is rather unusual among my e-mail acquaintances.)
In any event, all you have to do is get approved for an American Airlines credit card. It’s not one of those affinity cards through Mastercard, Visa or American Express, where you earn miles on whatever you buy. It’s more like a store credit card, good only for purchases from American Airlines.
If you pay when the six months is up, there’s no interest charge.
I’m thinking that if a doctor ever tells me I have only six months to live, American Airlines had better hope I’m not feeling well enough to fly. And even if I’m still around six months later, how is American going to repossess airline trips?
I guess they’ll just have to take the dinette set.
