Credit Card Debt is Creeping Back Up

10 minutes

From the blog this week, we shared an article about a recent survey from Bankrate that says that 3 in 10 Americans have more credit card debt than emergency savings.  Which leads to the question, what are your financial priorities?  Is it saving?  Paying down debt first?  Saving, then paying down debt?  Send an email and let us know!

Finally, make sure to follow along on social on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as deals and savings will be shared there that don't always make it to the site or podcast in time - such as this week's eHarmony deal for Valentine's Day!
