Atleast its safe against losses.
True, but you know a money market gives you about .3% now. ING is the best, do not remember what I get there. And with vintage cards there is no inflation in prices like there is in modern cards. But I agree with you, smart investing in a mutual fund will give you a 8-10% ROI every year, doubling your money ever 8 years.
