Money Counselor on TwitterI’m grateful for these mentions during the past week:

  • My “Credit Card Debt Trends” on how the 2008 financial meltdown affected Americans’ use of credit cards made the Lifestyle Carnival #12 at From Shopping to Saving.
  • 101 Centavos hosted last week the Carnival of Money Pros, and included Money Counselor’s “Plan to Pay Off Debt” post describing a simple way to determine the monthly payment needed to pay off a debt by a certain date.
  • The 346th (wow!) Festival of Frugality, hosted by One Smart Dollar, included my “Rapid Rescore = $$$” article on how a quick and painless rapid rescore done by your mortgage lender can save you thousands of dollars.
  • The Money Counselor article about the effects of a new mortgage-targeted credit score on your ability to get a home loan, “New FICO Mortgage Score“, made IHeartBudget’s “What I’ve Been Reading on the Web” list. WorkSaveLive found the same article worthy of his “Weekend Reading” list.

Thanks much!
