Stop Refund Madness

February 21, 2019

So you’ve already filed your income taxes. Good for you. Now you’re just waiting around for that big, fat refund check that you get every year. Do you have a plan for it besides going on a spending spree? If you do have a refund coming, why don’t you do something with it that you won’t regret?  On this MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore have some ways you can put that money to good use before it disappears into your checking account. 

Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following:

  • If you're getting married soon, should you share accounts or have separate accounts?   
  • I’m you're a full time college student and have to get a co-signer for everything you buy, how can you increase your credit? 
  • If you go to a finance company and borrow $5,000, do you borrow an extra 10% to pay tithe?
  • With 0% interest rates, is it still better to buy a used car instead of a new one?
