Back to School

Now that summer vacations are nearing an end, and we’re all in the midst of late summer, with all it’s heat and humidity, it’s time to start thinking about that next big hurdle. Getting the kids ready to go back to school! Not only is it stressful, what with all the lists of things they have to have, but it’s also very expensive.

From new clothing, new shoes, and, of course, ALL of those school supplies, you can spend a small fortune before they ever set foot in the door of the school next month! (And this does not even include all those book fees, lab fees, classroom fees, and the cost of extracurricular activities! What’s a parent who is strapped for cash to do?

Here’s an idea! Why no do what our parents, and even their parents, did? Instead of trudging through the big box stores, the mall, and the outlet stores, why not order most of what the kids need online? With the right catalog shopping site, you can get almost everything they need AND you don’t have to shell out all that cash at a time when most of us are broke from summer vacation!

Catalog shopping… I know you remember it. Your Mom would get these great big catalogs in the mail, and you’d spend hours looking through the clothes, shoes, toys, and stuff, dreaming of all the things you wanted. Then, she’d place an order, either over the phone or by mailing in a form, and in a couple of weeks, the order would be delivered. Opening those boxes was almost as good as Christmas morning! Of course, now you can place your order online, and most places deliver within DAYS instead of weeks, but the excitement is still there and so is the value. These days, most catalog sites have competitive pricing, free shipping, and LOW interest rates… all the things you need when you’re trying to save money and get the kids back in school!

Think this might be your back to school solution?

Worried that your credit is not perfect? Many of our catalog shopping vendors will work with you to ensure that you’re able to buy what you need, and even better, you just might be able to improve your credit score in the long run!

Back to School Shopping Starts Soon!

Even though it’s only been a couple weeks since school let out for the summer, it’s no secret that summer vacations keep getting shorter and shorter.

Fall is just around the corner!

In fact, there are already schools in our country that go year around.  That’s why you might want to start thinking about this year’s back to school shopping expenses sooner rather than later!

Let’s face it, it costs a lot of money to get the kids back in school every year – between all the fees, books, and other required gear for school, there usually isn’t much left for new clothes, shoes, or even that computer that your oldest needs to start college this fall.  What’s a parent to do?

Well, here’s an idea… Why not start your back to school shopping now?

Rather than wait until the week before (or even the day before) school starts, you can go ahead and get some of the necessities out of the way now, then maybe your expenses won’t seem so insurmountable later on, when it’s time to pay those hefty fees to the school.

Especially if you shop online, there are deals EVERYWHERE right now!   All of the major retailers are running specials, sales, and promotions galore… and you can take advantage of those savings to spend less or get even more for your money.  And if your money is tight?  What then?

Well, if your cash flow is limited, you might want to think about opening a Fingerhut account, so you can still take advantage of their online specials and sales but you’ll have plenty of time to pay for your purchases.

Worried about your credit score?  Relax.  A Fingerhut account might just be easier to get than you think!  Fingerhut has a reputation for working with those of us with less than perfect credit  – so don’t delay, open your Fingerhut account today!

Back to school shopping is a huge expense for most families… what with getting the kids new clothes, new shoes, new electronics (computers, tablets, phones), and then there are all the fees that you’re expected to pay.

Did you know that Fingerhut carries brand name clothes, brand name shoes, and the latest electronics? That’s right… if the kids want it or need it, chances are Fingerhut has it! Everything from backpacks to school supplies, even things that college kids need when they head off on their own for the first time… comforters, bedding, bath accessories, even dorm sized refrigerators… if you’re looking for it, chances are you’ll find it online!
