    ...free due to the generosity of credit card companies back in 2006.

    Back then, you opened a bunch of credit cards and 'balance transferred' promotional 0% money into your 5% high interest savings account.

    Back in the glory days, you could pay $500 or less in transfer fees to control $100,000 for a year, making 5% APY.

    Now the offers are mostly trash and interest rates suck, but then again, a buddy of mine just got a 12-mo no interest no fee offer recently. There may be hope after all...
