Happy Memorial Day! You all spending some quality time w/ the friends and fam? Well, if not (or if you’re bored and/or just sneaking away to get your finance on) here’s a freakin’ BRILLIANT video courtesy of ABC’s upcoming 1 hour special – “Un-Broke” (Friday, May 29th @ 9pm EST):
Via ABC’s site: “Schools teach us almost everything, but not “Money 101.” For the basics on finance, turn to UN-BROKE: What You Need to Know About Money. It’s an unconventional look at the fundamentals of everyday finance with all the facts about credit cards, mortgages, stocks and bonds, investing and 401(k)’s, in a fresh new format combining information and humor.”
Hell yeah! You gotta love that. About time people realize mixing entertainment w/ financial education is a smart move ;) Happy Holiday everybody, God bless. (Big thx to Mrs Micah for finding this gem!)
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
