Money Talks News: The Woman with the Award-Winning Debt

The Happy Ending

With her debt wiped out and a modest savings account, Francine knows she needs to rebuild her credit – and ironically, credit cards are the easiest way to do that. She also knows they have other advantages. So she recently got a cash-back card. But she’s a little nervous about sliding back into old habits.

“I’ve been using it like a debit card,” she says. “Every time I buy something, I automatically deduct it from my checkbook.”

So what happens now? She doesn’t know. But she knows this much: “I was afraid because I didn’t want to have to work till I’m 80.” Now she knows she won’t have to.
