    Nah, it doenst cost that much. All yuo have to do is be unfunded, have a heart attack requiring emergency open heart. Then the hospital is required by law (EMTALA). Sure, they will bill you and then report it to the credit agencies, but if you don't care about all that, it is basically free. See? TINSTAAFL is not always true.

    Yes it is, it is used by every single online retailer, just google the word "free"... But is Sirius actually (or any of those retailers) giving anything for "free" ? I do not think so. Not even the "free" trial subscriptions that comes with new cars.

    Still. Not free. It may not cost you right away but whenever you will need credit it will...unless you are a millionaire and never need credit... but then again, if you have the money, why not pay right away ?

    aha! We have a winner! Well, on the other hand, is it really free if it costs you your life?
