The consumer-friendly CARD Act is saving credit card holders hundreds of millions of dollars and almost as many headaches, but it has some flaws. For example, it made life more difficult for roughly 5 million stay-at-home spouses by making it hard for them to get credit. That's going to change soon.
The Card Act was passed in 2009 to protect consumers from unfair and deceptive credit card practices. But some stay-at-home parents complain that one part of the law has made it harder for them to get credit cards.
