Pawnfree: /Paw-n-fr-ee/ Now that the credit crunch is well under way many people will be forced to turn to buying on credit from those pawn-free credit offers.

Etymology: Pawn(a person who is used by others for their own purposes) + Free(Something given for nothing. OR IS IT???) Created by: TJayzz.
