    29.99% APR. My butt hurts already. It's an anticipatory pain. I think I'm going to work on getting this paid off pretty quickly.

    I would just walk away from that mess man... 30% is rediculous... even if you have bad credit. I've heard of people owing their soul to Lucifer himself with a lower APR :haha:

    After 1 year you would, on that $860, have paid $258 in interest..

    If there's any way you could avoid, do it..... :eek1:
