From Clark Howard's Show Notes:
The credit card industry was patting itself on the back when the new bankruptcy law it has been pushing for finally got passed recently. But the banks and credit card companies may soon regret what they wished for. The new bankruptcy law has gotten so much publicity that people are scared and they’re paying down their credit card bills at an unprecedented rate. People are realizing that there is no second chance with this new law. If you borrow a lot of money, you’re going to have to pay it back now. And people don’t like paying money back, so they’re being more careful with credit. MBNA, for example, has already had a decline in profits of 94 percent. Capital One has also seen its outstanding balances decline. As a result, these companies are going to flood your mailbox with solicitations for cards. It’s a move of desperation, and you don’t want to get involved. So, keep paying down your debts and let the credit cards reap what they sow.
