Im a college student and have a part time job with about 25+ hours a week and im getting paid a decent amount every 2 weeks. I want to purchase an Ipad 2 ive seen a few refurbished ipads for cheap and i wanted to buy one. I saw the credit card option and was wondering is there a monthly fee for the card? I saw there was no annual fee but in my situation i have already 1 credit card that i dont use unless its for school only and i dont want to have a 2nd one if i have to worry about paying a monthly fee. Any suggestions?

Anyplace wanting you to get a credit card so you can get the iPad is a place to avoid. Save and pay cash. Beware of all entry level credit card offers as they will have high interest AND yearly fees.

You are very wise to be skeptical!

I can certainly understand the allure of owning an ipad, but as with the others, I recommend you do so only when you have some spare cash lying around. He probably just needed a 2nd opinion to dump the idea. :)

Gotta agree with the others on this. Don't buy luxuries like an iPad unless you've got the cash. Save the credit for emergencies.
