Don't just read the fine print, read the finer print. Barclaycard gave me a financing option without clearly stating how long the deferred interest would last... in the end, I had $120 left, which I was going to pay off on the 1st of new month and be done, but Barclaycard charged me over $200 of interest, which was based on my initial credit purchase (of $1590), not the remaining balance (of $120). That is not what Apple promised me when I was buying my laptop. Thinking that I had more time to pay off the card based on my purchase summary (which qualified for 18 months, instead of 12), I was shocked to find out the $318 statement. In the end, I guess, it was my fault.... but I wish there was some sort of warning before charging over 100% interest on my remaining balance of $120. Barclaycard goes out of its way to misguide their customers and hide the "hidden charges" I would not recommend it to any of the people I even remotely care about.
