    Sign up for a Giants Mastercard. Decent APR (which is moot if you keep your debt low), and 10,000 points after your first purchase, which can be used as a $100 statement credit. Free hundred bucks, you can't go wrong. Plus, it's basically memorabilia.

    You should know what your talking about before you post. They count part time equivalents in the 50 people number.

    So what is the standard for the requirement to pay for health care insurance?
    Is it your view that Obamacare requires that part time employees be supplied with health insurance?

    No. In your example 49 FT and 26 PT, if the FT people were not insured the PT equivalents would put you over the 50 person amount and make you subject to the penalty. If the 49 FT are insured then there is no issue.
    Engage brain before speaking.

    Isn't HSBC and mastercard like linked up, together? Usually when you get a debit card from HSBC, they have mastercard on them.

    And I think Visa is with Chase.

    lolwut? I think you have a profound misunderstanding of how this works =P

    Banks can really choose to contract plastics with whoever they want. You just made it sound like there are only 2 banks in the world. lol

    Plus, I'm fairly sure HSBC was merged with First Niagara...

    my place uses visa, but we USED to offer mastercard credit for a short while.

    No I didn't? I used chase as another example... I'm saying, isn't there a contract between these credit card companies and their banks?

    Like you'll see mastercard on most or all HSBC debit cards and VISA for Chase.

    I am not sure about the other banks because I never used them.

    Never liked HSBC as a bank to be honest. Every branch I've been to sucked and had horrible employees.

    Chase is nice, awesome people.
