The Unsung Hero of Finance

Contributed by:

Free checking is so ordinary that it’s often taken for granted. It’s hard to imagine it even having a genesis.

One blogger – in a more than 4,000-word manifesto on free checking – offers 1982 as the debut date of free checking services. While services tagged “free checking” may have existed before then, a few web sources indicate they were still mostly conditional.

Car Buying Made Easy

Contributed by:

There are a few things in life that truly make me cringe. One is the thought of major dental work, another is sitting through a calculus class, and yet another is shopping at a traditional car dealership.  The cheesy and pushy sales pitches, along with some crazy sticker prices are certainly nightmare worthy.

So what’s an alternative, you might ask?  The Credit Union Auto Buying Service (CUABS) is the perfect option!  CUABS is part of Truliant, and you’re able to shop for a new, or new-to-you, vehicle with peace of mind.  You can’t beat the prices either! Take a look at their website to see the listings that are almost always under retail value.
