Pronunciation: Paw-n-fr-ee

Sentence: 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. This means that you are entitled to free gifts and 0% for the first six months, then when you are completely hooked the rate goes up to 19% therefore having great difficulty keeping up the repayments.

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