debt based fundraising?

Listening to Morning Edition, I was surprised to hear this story about an interesting fundraising scheme being used in Michigan:
Michigan's Democratic Party will ask caucus goers Saturday to apply for "affinity" credit cards as a way to raise campaign money. The party will receive $45 for each person who signs up for the special card, plus 1 percent of the value of purchases made on it. Rick Pluta of Michigan Public Radio reports. ["Michigan Democrats Turn to Credit for Cash"]

I'm amazed that they'll be handing out applications at the caucus, but I guess it's a party activity.
