The other day, I was in one of the department stores near my house, and I noticed that they’re already pushing school supplies. Row after row of school supplies, as a matter of fact. Then, it dawned on me. Once school starts, the stores will be putting out Halloween and even Christmas decorations… in less than a month, we’ll start to see them. And Christmas is now only five months away.
Have you figured out how you’re going to pay for this year’s Christmas gift giving?
Wait, you’re still trying to figure out how to put the kids back in school, right? And now we’re talking Christmas? Yep, Christmas really isn’t that far away, is it? And if your money is as tight as mine at times, just the thought of having to come up with the money for Christmas triggers a sick little feeling right in the pit of your stomach, doesn’t it?
So, how will you afford Christmas?
You know, one of the best ways that I know to do your Christmas shopping when you don’t have a lot of money is to use a trusted catalog shopping site, with a credit program like the Fingerhut Credit Account issued by WebBank.
The thing that I like about Fingerhut, to be very honest, is the simple fact that when my credit was bad and no one else would even work with me, Fingerhut issued me a credit card for their site, and not only was I able to afford Christmas, but they also reported my regular payments to the credit bureaus, then rewarded my responsible monetary behavior with more available credit. In fact, I probably have more available credit with Fingerhut than I do with any other creditor (and now that my credit score has bounced back, I actually have other credit cards, too).
