TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - SmartSAVER continues to bring top consumer advice to parents with its Know More Money! series of online seminars. Join Pat Foran, CTV broadcaster and consumer advocate, this Wednesday, October 19, at 1 PM ET on Twitter for an online chat about controlling your relationship with credit cards.
"It's hard to believe, but paying only the minimum monthly payment each month could have you paying off your credit card balance for decades," says Foran, who exposes hard truths to put credit card users back in the driver's seat.
Three participants will win a copy of Foran's latest book: The Smart, Savvy Young Consumer: How to Save and Spend Wisely.
The Know More Money! series is sponsored by SmartSAVER, an organization helping to connect families with modest incomes with the Canada Learning Bond, a free government grant designed to help parents save for their children's education.
"Our online speaker series, Know More Money! brings Canada's best financial savvy speakers directly to parents committed to making post-secondary education achievable for their children," says May Wong, Executive Director of the Omega Foundation, the organization that created SmartSAVER. "Becoming more informed about their credit cards and starting a Registered Education Savings Plan are just two of the ways families can get financial products working for them."
