Cool, But What’s The APR?

user submitted pictureA credit card that won’t work on Shabbat is scheduled to launch sometime this month in Israel. The creators of the shomer Shabbat card hope to counterbalance the shops and businesses that are choosing to remain open on Saturdays rather than observe the day of rest from handling money and shlepping shopping bags. If the haredi population can make their voice heard through the cash register, perhaps this will inspire more businesses to get back to Shabbat.
Observant or not, it would behoove all of our finances to give the plastic a rest one a day a week, nu?
A Peaceful Shabbos to all, Jmerica!
