    So far we have only had two orders - Grof142007's and mine. After all the enthusiasm for the idea in this thread I am disappointed that a few more people haven't ordered.

    I'll see what happens over the next few weeks, but if it doesn't pick up a bit I'll probably close it.

    Am I right in thinking that there's no guy's tank top or guy's thong? Seems like the women are winning out here :slight_smile: which is totally fine by me. It's just funny.

    (And no, I wasn't gonna buy an EC tank top or thong... I just thought it was weird there weren't male equivalents.)

    Because when you use a credit card, you get to use the credit card company's money interest-free for at least 21 days and you aren't charged service fees, whereas debit is a total scam because you are paying the banks (unless you have an unlimited transaction package) to use your own money, which then isn't earning you any money from the moment you make the purchase.

    Paying everything by credit card and then paying off your credit card balance each month is the absolutely smartest way to make purchases in the modern world, especially if you have a credit card with some kind of reward option on it. The problem is that most people treat their credit limit as if it represents money they actually have, when in fact it represents money they can borrow at a really excessive interest rate. So people max out their credit cards and then end up owing a shitload of interest on their balances. If you use your credit card just as a charge card and don't put more on it than you can afford, you win.

    Hmmm, well I have been brought up to think that credit was to be used as a second option, like only in emergencies. My parents rarely use their credit cards, instead they use their debit cards. I don't have a credit card, and will only be getting one for when I go overseas, or move out so that if there is an absolute emergency, such as needed to pay hospital bills etc I can have the money (well, the ability to loan money) and just pay it back later.

    Please don't close it Paul. My parents owe me money, so I'll see if I can come to an agreement with my mom. But there's a limited amount I could buy. But I'm definitely trying.

    OK, so I'm talking to my mom tonight. For now, it'll probably be just a couple EC shirts, but I definitely want more.

    Excellent! Do post photos when they arrive!

    I'm still waiting for my mug, mousemat and teddy bear to arrive (they were despatched a week ago). I will definitely do photos of those, maybe with the teddy on my shoulder like Martin's toy dog in his avatar.

    Would it be possible to get boxers with just the "ec" on them?

    I have changed the logo on the boxer shorts from "emptyclosets" to "ec" for you.

    PC Financial Mastercard FTW! I also find having the bill at the end of the month lets me see where all my money's going, where cash vanishes into thin air.

    Another thing is in the US it's quite common for debit cards to have Visa or Mastercard logos and they can be processed as such. Handy for online shopping if you're too young to have a credit card (all security risks aside). However in some places like Canada such systems don't exist. Credit cards and Debit cards are always processed separately, with debit transactions being treated as a normal bank withdrawal. A handy thing with debit is getting cash back. My mom does that with her weekly groceries to avoid an extra trip to the bank. I so rarely withdraw cash I just go when needed.

    Most of the place in Vancouver don't do cash back anymore. I think it was too much of a hassle for them.

    Yeah, we don't have debit cards that are credit card-branded here... for which I thank the gods because that's just fucked-up confusing!

    Most major retailers around here still do it. Grocery stores, Wal*Mart, etc.

    What's even more confusing, in the States there's about 45 different bank card networks, so it's roulette about whether your card will work at a given retailer if you want to use debit as debit and not as Visa / Mastercard, where Canada we only have Interac.

    Though as far as fucked up confusing, we were in the states at a grocery store and my mom was paying with her Visa and the machine asked whether it was credit or debit. It kind of confused my mother, unaware of how debit cards go in the states.
