As a free American, I have zero.. ZERO problems with any private business that helps our military. If it provides them cheaper rates or great service or HELP. Good for them, our military personnel deserve every single break they can get.

Off topic, sort of, my daughter bought a large tomato plant at Costco last spring. When it didn't do well, she threatened to take it back, since, apparently Costco takes anything back, even after you've used it for months. Somehow they can afford to do that.
Right on Glenn, I bought as a surprise for my wife a new washer and dryer at Costco on Aug 1, she hated the washer, tangled the clothes, didn't get them clean. Took the set back yesterday, no questions, and no problem with the fact Costco Canada has switched from Amex to MasterCard and I don't have MC, they just put the $1400 right into my bank account

Amen to that.
And, thank you, Donna.

It's a pretty common practice for companies that once served a specific, and exclusively limited, clientele to eventually open up their memberships. Credit unions are a classic example around here, and GEICO was once limited to government employees (Government Employees Insurance Company). That lizard will now sell to anyone!

So anyway, we got approved today using Costco/Essex Credit. APR was 4.29, not bad I guess.

Golden 1 Credit Union. Credit unions give better rates in general. I checked Golden 1 in San Antonio

Golden 1 of course is in California. Their co-op affiliate here is Security Service FCU of which I'm a member. Security Services' rate was around 6%, much higher than Essex. I'm also a member of Randolph Brooks FCU, and their rate was 5.39%. Credit Unions aren't always the best bet.

Why would a 48 month loan from Penfed CU for a new $30k car run 2.5% , but spending the same price for the same time period for an RV run 6.5%?

Do people default on toys that much more then cars?

At least the interest on an RV is tax deductible in the US - considered a second home!
