VANCOUVER, Jan. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Vancouver Gold today announced a unique program in the cash-for-gold market called "Gold for Bills". Designed to help Canadians pay off their holiday bills, customers can use the value from their gold jewellery to pay off any debt through a 10% bonus credited directly to their billing company.

Individuals can bring in any type of bill and their unwanted gold jewellery to any one of the company's locations to receive the bonus. While the program requires that the bonus be credited directly towards a bill, customers may choose to have any amount, up to the full value of their payout also credited to their bill.

With Statistics Canada's announcement that Canadian household debt has risen to record-highs, up to 165% of annual disposable income (Statscan - Dec 13, 2012), it's clear that many people will have trouble paying off their holiday bills.

Cashing in old gold jewellery has always been a popular way to pay off bills, says Charlie Pollock, CEO of Vancouver Gold; while Gold for Bills helps to make the process easier and even more profitable for those customers.
