Customer Review: Great tent with a porch to boost!
This is a great tent for the money it is roomy and has a screened porch for sitting before checking in for the night. I have a family of six and we felt very comfortable in this tent. This is not a year round tent but goes through fair and semi-bad weather like a champ. The tent is sturdy and unlike the fellow who has a tent "from a few years back", we were as dry as you can get after a thunder storm that dumped a very heavy amount of rain. I am very happy with this product and glad I took the chance on it, even paying full price was a bargain compared to other I've tried. It is now nicely tucked away, but will be out again for early spring duty.
Customer Review: Absolute Junk
This is the worst tent I have ever owned. I am not new to camping in a tent. I was a boy scout as a kid and have spent many rainy nights in a tent. I received this tent as a wedding gift a few years ago, and it is very roomy...I'll give it that, but when the rain comes it leaks like crazy. Even if there is an excess amount of dew in the morning you'll get wet. I think the problem lies in how the tent poles come together at the top center of the tent. The connector piece touches the rain fly and wicks the water in. The top of the tent without the rain fly is screen mesh. So when the water wicks in it runs down the screen, pools up, and eventually falls through. I even added a seam sealer to the rain fly, and water still came through.

As a student looking for a credit card, everything is going to be foreign to you at first. Don't worry, it happens to all of us. The best thing about applying for a credit card online is that you're able to read all of the terms and conditions before applying without having someone breathing down your neck while getting that free t-shirt.

By now, you've probably noticed those pesky credit card tents set up on your campus. It's quite simple, you sign up and the companies either supply you with a free lunch or an extra large t-shirt that you'll never wear. America likes free things and this is exactly why these types of systems work.

Let's look at the downfall of applying for a credit card for that free t-shirt. When applying, you're not going to be able to know exactly what you're applying for. You're going to feel rushed when filling out the form and sometimes, you won't even know the APR rate, which is a bad thing.

The nice thing about applying online is that you're able to have choice. Instead of having one credit card company pushing one credit card, you can target a specific group of cards. So if you're looking for a student credit card, you're able to find a website designed for that niche. From there, you'll be able to browse each and every card carrier such as MasterCard, VISA, etc.

The nice thing about applying online is that you actually have a choice. You're able to sit down, take your time and read what each credit card is about. Every card out there offers many rewards such as gas rewards, hotel rewards, and so much more. Just because you're a student, this doesn't mean you're going to get these rewards. Most of the times you won't receive these rewards are if you have bad credit.

When you think of the kiosks, you can't really think of perk besides getting that t-shirt. Let's face it. You're not going to be able to read the terms and they always supply you with a t-shirt that doesn't even fit. So the question is, is it worth it in the end?

When applying for your first one, especially when you're a student, it's very important that you do your research and find what you're getting yourself into. Further down the road when you have established credit and you know what cards are all about then maybe that free towel or t-shirt won't be a bad idea after all.

In the meantime, it's very important that you take the time to either do your research online or ask around your family and friends. This way you'll know exactly what your credit card is all about and you'll feel good in the long run knowing you've applied for a card that will actually come to good use!
