Biggest Headlines of 2009: Family Receives 445 Credit Card Offers in One Year

It was a big year for credit card companies in the news — mostly because of ridiculously high interest rates — but, in any case, they remained a hot topic all year long. Still, maybe nothing was as shocking as the news of one family who received an outrageous total of 445 credit card solicitations, weighing over 23 pounds. Isn't that timely? Just when we're all working hard to keep our credit in check along comes not just one or two card offers, but a whole slew of credit solicitations, including a couple for the family's 8- and 11-year-old children. It sure was one crazy year.

What else wowed us this year? Check out some of the biggest headlines of 2009 and cast your votes in my Best of 2009 polls!
