TD Bank Has a Pretty Dumb New Idea for a Credit Card Product

Doing what I do, I've seen several new credit card products come down the pike in recent years. Some of these are fairly boring (like 2% flat rate cards — they have a use but they're not exciting), others as more interesting but not for me (see: Ness Card), and...
