Have you seen those ridiculous "Magic Happens" signs Visa is plastering
all over the place? Oh yes, it's magic all right: the type of magic that
the Con loves. It's a lottery, designed to make you want to use your
credit card more often and put yourself deeper in debt, on the off chance
that you might not have to pay for one of those purchases.
Visa, in its eternal generosity, has set up a system where each day until
the end of the year, for *one single second* of the day, any Visa
purchases made at that single second will not be charged and anyone making
a purchase at that single second gets it for free. (The exact second of
the day is generated randomly, allegedly.) Isn't that great? One second
out of a twenty-four hour day -- that means your chances of winning are
only one in 86,400! Doesn't that just make you want to run right out and
SPEND MONEY with your Visa card?
As Doug Henning says: "It's MAGIC!"
