When Pinkie Pie gets a credit card, she wants nothing more than to use it to buy lavish gifts for her friends.
So, that's exactly what she does.
This story was written in October 2012, which is roughly the same time I got a credit card of my own (a decision which I still regret to this very day). I wanted to write something with Pinkie, as I never really use her all that often in my stories, and this seemed like a good way to finally make use of her in my work.
This was also the first story I submitted to Equestria Daily, back when they had their 'three strikes' system. Each time I submitted the story, it was rejected with a list of things that needed 'fixed.' I made the necessary changes and sent it in again, only for a different pre-reader to reject it and give me a new list of things needing 'fixed.' As a result, three versions of this story exist; you can find each of them here.
I have nothing against this story, but I feel that I could have done so much more with it. In hindsight, I probably should have used Rarity instead of Pinkie Pie.
That's all for now, folks.
Sound off in the comments if you have any questions, and stay awesome.
