I recently joined Qvisory as an occasional contributing blogger. You can find two of my recent articles reposted at the Tools for Life Blog, or read my contributor profile. Qvisory is a new nonprofit organization that supports the health, financial well-being, and career goals of young adults from 18 to 34 years old.
Advocacy is a core part of Qvisory’s mission, and the group is already off and running battling a critical piece of legislation facing Congress any day now: The Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights (HR 5244). This bill would stop abusive credit card company practices like:
- Raising your interest rates when you are late paying an unrelated bill.
- Forcing you to pay your least expensive debt first.
- Setting arbitrary due dates and times.
- Raising your interest rates any time for any reason or for no reason at all.
Let your representatives know what you think! Take action on this bill now.
Qvisory provides free content to help you become financially fit, but they also offer a $36 annual membership which gives you access to confidential financial and credit counseling from Balance; You Need a Budget, an online budgeting tool; career and salary information from Eureka and more.
If you enjoy this site or other personal finance blogs, I highly recommend you bookmark Qvisory today!
