Consumers don’t have to look far to find financial blogs that vilify credit card companies, but if you’re looking for information about how to manage your credit, why not take it from the horse’s mouth? Credit card companies have a vested interest in financially literate customers who pay their bills and use credit responsibly, so Visa created an educational resource called Practical Money Skills For Life .
The site aims to promote financial literacy in schools, financial institutions, and nonprofits. The Educators Advisory Council, a group of financial literacy educators, advises Visa on content for the site.
Readers can find resources on personal finance including credit and debt, spending and saving, and life events. Readers can also browse through resources for educators, games for kids and calculators for budgets, buying a car, college, retirement, loans , and taxes.
