[CAUTION: credit card finance fees]

Using your credit card for cash advances is extremely costly!
You may be charged a 3% transaction fee; plus the finance charges of
as much as 22% APR are calculated immediately - there's no grace period.
Remember, too, your bill payments must be received by the due date;
or you may be charged an additional late payment fee - it adds up!
