Payday lender Cash Express reports data breach affecting 100,000 customers https://joshadamsrealtor.com/payday-lender-cash-express-reports-data-breach-affecting-100000-customers/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 19:50:00 +0000 https://joshadamsrealtor.com/payday-lender-cash-express-reports-data-breach-affecting-100000-customers/ Non-bank lending company Cash Express this month reported to the Montana Attorney General a data breach that allowed an unauthorized party to access sensitive consumer information of more than 100,000 people.

Non-bank lending company Cash Express this month reported to the Montana Attorney General a data breach that allowed an unauthorized party to access sensitive consumer information of more than 100,000 people.

The company, which provides payday loans, check cashing, title loans and other high-cost short-term lending services, said in a letter to those affected that an unauthorized party obtained their personal information, including dates of birth, social security numbers, financial information. and contact information earlier this year. The Cookeville, Tennessee-based company did not provide specific details about how the breach occurred.

Richard Console, a personal injury lawyer, said in a legal blog that the most common harm from data breaches Hackers use people’s personal information to open new credit cards or personal loans. Console told American Banker in an email that it has seen an increase in data breaches since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in 2021.

“The lesson to be learned from any data breach is that companies need to do more to protect the sensitive consumer information entrusted to them,” Console said in the email to Banker. “Certainly creating and maintaining robust data security protocols is an additional cost; however, given the ever-increasing number of data breaches, the expense is justified.”

At least 80 financial services companies reported data breaches in 2022according to the Maine Attorney General’s Office, though Maine only tracks violations that affect at least one resident of the state.

In its letter to those affected, Cash Express said it had engaged a third-party data security firm to conduct an investigation after detecting unusual activity on its corporate network on February 6. The investigation revealed that an unauthorized party accessed part of the computer system between January 29 and February 6. According to the Maine Attorney General’s Office, 106,521 people were affected through the breach.

Cash Express received the results of the investigation on August 4 and reported the activity to the Montana Attorney General and affected individuals on September 15. CEO Garry McNabb said in the letter that Cash Express is offering free credit card monitoring to affected individuals through a one-year membership to Experian’s IdentityWorks.

The consumer lending company was founded in 1995. It operates through offices in the Midwest and the South.

In 2018, the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced that Cash Express would pay a civil penalty of $200,000 and restitution of $32,000 to customers for a series of violations of the Consumer Financial Protection Act involving deceptive consumers.

Predatory payday loan companies and fraudsters thrive amid unequal laws and stolen data https://joshadamsrealtor.com/predatory-payday-loan-companies-and-fraudsters-thrive-amid-unequal-laws-and-stolen-data/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 18:16:00 +0000 https://joshadamsrealtor.com/predatory-payday-loan-companies-and-fraudsters-thrive-amid-unequal-laws-and-stolen-data/ As consumers have lost their jobs and struggled to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic, many have turned to payday loans and other short-term solutions, with an increase in solutions in line.

As consumers have lost their jobs and struggled to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic, many have turned to payday loans and other short-term solutions, with an increase in solutions in line. This has not only allowed predatory lenders to thrive – many borrowers still face exorbitant interest rates and opaque fees – but has also created a fertile environment for scam artists, according to a new in-depth study from the Better Business Bureau. .

From 2019 to July 2022, BBB received nearly 3,000 customer complaints about payday loan companies, with a disputed dollar amount of nearly $3 million. In addition, over 117,000 complaints have been filed against debt collection companies at BBB.

Complainants often said they felt ill-informed about the terms of their loans. Many fall into what consumer advocates call a “debt trap” of racking up interest and fees that can force customers to pay double the amount originally borrowed. A St. Louis, Missouri woman recently told BBB that over the course of her $300 loan, she paid over $1,200 and still owed an additional $1,500.

The scammers haven’t missed an opportunity to take advantage of consumers either. Posing as payday loan companies and debt collectors, scammers use stolen information to trick consumers into handing over banking information and cash. In one case, BBB discovered that hackers had stolen and released detailed personal and financial data for more than 200,000 consumers.

The BBB study advises consumers to thoroughly research all of their borrowing options — as well as the terms of a payday loan — before signing anything for a short-term loan.

These loans should be avoided..!? Do you know why?

Many people think they shouldn’t take out loans. But at the end of the month, we will be forced to take out loans. This will be unavoidable in middle-class families earning a monthly salary. However, experts say they can avoid taking out some loans. Why do we say to avoid only certain loans? What is the reason for this? Let’s see.
Payday loan:
It is impossible to avoid borrowing during the current period, but it is very important to avoid payday loans. In particular, these loans are taken by small entrepreneurs, small traders and those who have shops in the daily market as individuals. You have to buy it in the morning and pay in the evening. Interest on these types of loans can be very high. It should therefore be avoided.
Car title loan:
A car title loan is usually a high interest loan. You can donate your vehicle and get it back within a month with interest first. Usually the interest on these loans is high. The vehicle may be sold if payment is not made within the time limit.
Advance on credit card:
In order not to use credit cards unnecessarily, some people take credit card advances. After that, interest may continue to accrue as interest. The interest rate is very high. If you don’t pay it on time, the penalty is very high.Casino loan:
Such loans are very rare in India. However, these loans are loans that should be avoided. These loans are used to promote sports in foreign countries.
Pawnbroker:
Many people can have this experience. Usually we get such loans by pawning our jewelry. Failure to pay this debt on time may result in your property being auctioned off. This includes restricted loans of a lower amount for more expensive real estate in rural areas.

SoLo Funds increases to $100 million in loans, despite legal setbacks https://joshadamsrealtor.com/solo-funds-increases-to-100-million-in-loans-despite-legal-setbacks/ Tue, 06 Sep 2022 17:37:00 +0000 https://joshadamsrealtor.com/solo-funds-increases-to-100-million-in-loans-despite-legal-setbacks/ SoLo Funds, a Los Angeles fintech that hosts a marketplace where people lend each other small amounts of money, is making progress by solving legal problems.

SoLo Funds, a Los Angeles fintech that hosts a marketplace where people lend each other small amounts of money, is making progress by solving legal problems. But the executives acknowledge that they are unlikely to make money from loans and will instead have to expand into credit cards and other services if the startup is to become profitable.

The company, which picked up an idea that LendingClub and Prosper abandoned several years ago, recently hit the milestone of $100 million in loans made through its platform. It has 700,000 users. He also creates what he calls a “loan [distributed autonomous organization]” or cooperative, an independent entity that will manage loans from person to person.

Company executives claim that SoLo has a unique model that is provide affordable credit to underserved communities. Regulators and state critics call it a standard issue payday lender. The case is an example of a recent trend in which regulators are taking a more critical look at fintechs and the banks that work with them.

Legal issue

In May, The Connecticut State Banking Commissioner has imposed a cease and desist order on SoLo for alleged violations of state rules.

The state regulator claimed that while SoLo asked consumers to pay voluntary “tips” for the small loans they received, it only approved loans for people who paid the tips. According to the order, 100% of SoLo’s loans to Connecticut residents from June 2018 through August 2021 contained a tip to the lender or to SoLo itself and those tips amounted to annual percentage rates ranging from 43% to 4,280%. . The order also cited SoLo Funds for non-disclosure of tips and for not having loan and collection licenses in the state.

“We really do something different and that’s what it’s all about,” says Rodney Williams, co-founder and president of SoLo Funds.

“We’re working on that process,” Rodney Williams, president and co-founder of SoLo Funds, said of the Connecticut order in a recent interview. “What’s most important is that we’re really doing something different and that’s what it’s all about. We’re approaching this problem that Americans face in a very unique way. The truth of the story is that we are actually doing something quite remarkable, which we are extremely proud of.”

Tips and suggested donations on SoLo loans are all optional, he said, and the company does not attempt to collect them.

“We didn’t want a mandatory fee,” Williams said. “We understand that this demographic has been taken advantage of and they’ve been continually told what to pay. They’re told what to do. They’re told where they can shop. And they’re told where they can eat. We wanted to give them the same environment they have when they go to a restaurant: they have the choice of paying extra [for a tip]. We felt like if we could give them choice, autonomy and control, we could ultimately teach them the cost of capital.”

Customers obtain the funds needed to handle emergencies through SoLo’s platform that they otherwise could only obtain through predatory payday lenders, Williams said, noting that SoLo’s default rate is about 10%, or one-third the rate of payday lenders.

SoLo Funds Requested Cease and Desist Hearing; it’s scheduled for December. SoLo will have the opportunity to present its case to a hearing officer, who will present a draft decision to the Connecticut Banking Commissioner, who will render a decision. If the commissioner upholds the cease and desist order, SoLo can take the case to a higher court.

If the two parties reach an agreement before the hearing, SoLo Funds will most likely have to agree to obtain a license, make restitution to the affected customers and pay a fine. It will also have to meet Connecticut’s 36% annual rate cap on small loans.

Critics say the company is not what it seems.

“Like many fintechs, SoLo Funds claims to be doing something unique, but they’re just engaging in an old business model of high-cost payday loans disguised as helping the community,” said Lauren Saunders, director Fellow of the National Consumer Law Center. . “These are high-cost payday loans with all the same problems as traditional payday loans, compounded by an evasive and potentially illegal business model of hiding tip interest and not disclosing the annual percentage rate. .”

How it works

The Solo Funds marketplace allows consumers to take out small loans from $50 to $100. Loan requests include a monetary tip offered to the person making the loan up to 12% of the loan amount and a “donation” to SoLo Funds itself up to 9%. Funds are deposited into a current account that borrowers must open with SoLo’s banking partner, Evolve Bank & Trust.

“We take all cease and desist orders seriously and are evaluating their implications for our partners,” Hank Word, president of open banking at Evolve Bank & Trust, said in a statement. “Solo has tracked the order and no longer offers these services in Connecticut, as well as other states. We continue to work with Solo and are monitoring the situation. This area of ​​lending is complicated, but it’s important to note that Evolve is not a lending party and is not part of the services provided by Evolve to Solo.”

The average borrower applies and gets financing in less than 15 minutes, Williams said.

“It’s literally Uber for loans,” he said. “Ordinary people have fought back and loaned over $100 million. We believe this is a feat that has never been done in the United States. Peer-to-peer models exist in other countries and work well in other countries like India. I think people want to help each other. People want to help. And this is an example of that.

Most — 82% — of lenders on SoLo’s platform live in underserved zip codes, Williams said.

“We are redistributing wealth in these communities on a large scale,” he said. “All the other lenders, all the other fintechs, are taking money from underserved people and they’re not putting it back into that community.”

SoLo Funds has no mandatory fees, Williams said. The donations it receives do not cover company expenses for running anti-money laundering checks and know-your-customer checks, for borrower validation and onboarding, for connecting accounts Plaid and for the transfer of money between borrowers and lenders via Visa Debit.

SoLo Funds raised $14 million in capital. Its path to profitability will come from offering services outside of lending and borrowing, Williams said.

The company is creating a subscription-based credit creation product, for example. It plans to offer a “wallet” that will provide neo-banking services such as high-yield debit cards and savings accounts.

“Our goal is to make lending and borrowing better and more community-focused at scale,” Williams said. “We don’t just want to do small loans. We want to do bigger loans. We want to do installment loans. We want to do community-supported credit cards. We want to do community-supported car loans. We want capital from everyday people to impact other everyday people.”

Some industry watchers say SoLo’s idealism isn’t enough.

“SoLo Funds should stop evading the law and should obtain state licenses and comply with federal and state lending laws,” Saunders said.

Creation of a loan cooperative

The founders of SoLo are in the process of creating a “loan DAO”, which they also call a loan cooperative. This will be allowed at the state level, they say.

In concept, the co-op will be akin to a credit union, Williams said. SoLo lending members will participate and select their preferences. Loans will be granted using algorithms developed by SoLo. The cooperative will have a board made up of members. It will be decentralized in the sense that there will be no traditional bank involved.

“It’s a better experience for our lenders,” Williams said. “If you think of our lenders today, they pick and choose who to lend to. Sometimes that can be a good choice. Sometimes that can be a bad choice. When you think of a co-op, not only will you be able to share the losses, you will be able to share the potential return, which ultimately stabilizes the platform, stabilizes the return, and stabilizes the user experience. So it’s a meaningful and better experience for our lending members and for our borrowers. members.”

The SoLo Funds team is considering using a distributed ledger for this. “We’re talking to a number of blockchain partners about how we’re going to bring this to life,” Williams said.

He was reluctant to divulge other plans.

“We are not done innovating,” he said. “We have so much in our tank.”

Payday loans in the US are a hugely predatory industry, and now the landscape is getting worse as scammers pose as popular lenders try to scam people.

A new report from the Better Business Bureau on these scammers highlighted the story of Shirleywho “received a call from a woman who said her name was”Lawrence Green.Lauren told Shirley that she “qualified for a $5,000 loan from the West Point lenders” but that shehad to do was pay $535 as a feebefore the money is deposited into their account. Then Green again said that “another $535 was needed because his credit wasn’t good enough.” However, once Shirley handed over the $1,070, Lauren disappeared with Shirley’s money, and when she went to search, she discovered that the company was fake and that her information had been stolen.

To be fowarding something…

Many scammers use names close to major payday lenders to work on the notoriety of some of these companies. The BBB has warned that fraudsters posing as debt collectors can also use the same tactics to “make their threats more serious”.

How many payday lender scams have been reported this year?

While the total number of scam attempts reported to the BBB has gone down, the amount that has been taken from those defrauded has increased over the years:

  • 2019 – Reports: 1,151 | Losses: $856
  • 2020 – Reports: 741 | Losses: $900
  • 2021 – Reports: 760 | Losses: $765
  • 2022 – Reports: 403 | Losses: $1,000.

These figures should be taken with caution since the BBB estimates that only about ten percent of fraud cases of this nature are reported to the organization – meaning that the extent of the problem is much bigger than these numbers represent.

The feds should take notice of people’s willingness to engage in the scam, as many have reported falling for the trap because “they were already in debt due to payday loans.” After being scammed, some victims also reported: “months behind on rents and other bills, due to the financial consequences of these scams.”

A general warning for those interested in a payday loan

Payday lenders are one of the least regulated aspects of financial services. The BBB reported that their scam trackers show “that despite efforts across the country to limit the power of payday loan companies, many Americans are still trappedin debt cycles after taking out any of these loans. These agencies use complicated formulas to hide high interest rates applied to loans of up to more than four hundred percent. BBB researchers shared the story of Wanda, a senior in Georgia who took out a $1,000 payday loan to build her credit.

Buried behind all the fees and paperwork, his real interest rate was almost 450%. She quickly regretted the decisionreads the report, noting that these companies often take advantage of older people. “They bill you every two weeks, and that’s about $400.00 to $600.00 per month to repay such a small amountt,” Wanda said, addressing the report’s authors.

A Franklin County Municipal Court judge last week pushed back against a “legal fiction” she said was concocted to evade Ohio’s new payday loan law and ruled against a company seeking to collect the debt.

Judge Jodi Thomas, in what she said was one of the first major rulings in Ohio’s 2018 payday loan reform, ruled that a short-term loan issued by Green Bear Ohio was confusingly structured to evade Ohio borrower protections.

A woman named April Williams walked into a local CheckSmart office on April 28, 2019 for a loan and walked out with a check for $501 to be repaid in 30 days. Unbeknownst to her, she accepted an additional $500 “collateral” at the time held by another party – TPG LLC.

She never received the $500 collateral and had no control over it, but she had to pay 24.99% interest plus fees on the $1,001 quasi-loan in what Thomas called it an “extraordinarily convoluted” transaction.

This security, Thomas reignedwas a “legal fiction having no other purpose than to ensure [Williams’] the original line of credit drawdown was over $1,000. In other words, by crossing the $1,000 threshold, the loan was controlled by Ohio’s mortgage laws, not its payday loan laws.

Green Bear is registered to issue loans under Ohio mortgage law, not the state’s short-term loan law.

“The CheckSmart employee told me that due to a change in the law, the loan would be structured as a line of credit and that I would be required to ‘borrow’ an additional $500 which I would neither receive nor would control, but instead would be held by the lender as ‘collateral’ for the loan,” Williams said in a affidavit.

“I only received $501, but I was charged 24.99% interest on the entire balance of $1,001, plus a $10 credit investigation fee and an annual $150 for the first year.”

A call to CheckSmart’s corporate headquarters was redirected to the company’s general counsel, who did not respond to a voicemail.

The term payday loan generally refers to short-term, low-amount, unsecured loans that borrowers repay on their next payday. These loans may be the only source of capital for poor Americans with bad credit who are in dire straits. However, loans often come with predatory rates and fees, trapping borrowers in cycles of taking out new loans to pay off old ones.

Williams returned to the CheckSmart location on four monthly visits to repay the first loan with a new, larger loan. In July 2019, she left with a $600 loan, which she never repaid. Subsequently, Insight Capital LLC, which purchased Williams’ debt, filed a lawsuit against her. Insight was asking for $600 in capital (plus 24.99% interest from the date of judgment), as well as $150 in annual fees and $10 in credit investigation fees.

A review of court records shows that Insight Capital has filed hundreds of such collection cases in Franklin County Municipal Court alone. Kevin Murch, an attorney representing Insight Capital, declined to comment but noted that all cases are now closed.

“It’s absolutely outrageous what the industry has done and what it has done,” said Emily White, an attorney representing Williams.

The court dismissed Insight Capital’s lawsuit seeking repayment from Williams, finding the underlying loan was structured to circumvent Ohio mortgage laws. However, Thomas also dismissed Williams’ counterclaims that the loans violated the Ohio Payday Loans Act of 2018 and the Consumer Sales Practices Act. White said she and Williams are considering appealing.

“If this is not a violation of consumer protection to be collected on loans, it will be difficult for ordinary consumers to find lawyers willing to defend cases and pursue legal remedies, especially more than most people who take out these loans have very limited funds in the first place,” White said.

The History of Payday Loans in Ohio

The Ohio General Assembly has tried and failed repeatedly to thwart the predatory practices adopted by some payday lenders.

In 2008, lawmakers passed legislation to force lenders to apply for a license and comply with various limitations. Ohio voters defeated an industry-backed referendum to repeal another law aimed at curbing payday lending.

However, instead of obtaining licenses under this law, lenders registered as brokers, circumventing consumer protections against soaring fees and interest rates.

A challenge under this law went to the Supreme Court of Ohio, ultimately resulting in a 2014 opinion allowing payday loans under Ohio’s mortgage law. It was based on a loan of $500 with repayment required within two weeks and an annual interest rate of 235%.

The decision was unanimous, but Judge Paul Pfeifer wrote a concurring opinion calling payday lending a “scourge” and criticizing state lawmakers for not closing the loophole.

“How is it possible?” he wrote. “How can the General Assembly set out to regulate a controversial industry and accomplish absolutely nothing? Were lobbyists smarter than legislators? Did lawmakers realize that the bill was all smoke and mirrors and would accomplish nothing?

In 2018, state legislators passed legislation which required payday lenders – those offering loans for less than $1,000 or for periods of less than one year – to obtain a license and comply with certain consumer protections. It also capped interest rates on loans at 28%, down from rates well into the hundreds.

It also capped total loan costs (fees and interest) at 60% of the loan principal.

The 2018 law was designed to close the loophole, prohibiting registrants under Ohio mortgage law from issuing loans for less than $1,000 or for one year or less. The Williams case suggests that payday lenders are still trying to circumvent state regulations.

Rep. Kyle Koehler, a Springfield Republican who led the 2018 effort, did not respond to an inquiry into the recent judgment.

From vacation trips to gifts under the tree, Christmas costs can add up quickly. If you’re feeling strapped for cash, you may be considering a loan to get you through the season.

Christmas loans are a type of personal loan designed for holiday expenses. You can borrow one to pay for gifts, trips, or just about any other legal purpose. You will receive a lump sum up front, which you will repay over time, usually with fixed monthly payments.

The terms of your loan vary by lender. Borrowers with good credit will generally qualify for better rates and more favorable terms, while borrowers with bad credit may have fewer options or receive higher interest rates.

Christmas loans can be unsecured or secured with collateral. To qualify for an unsecured loan, you will generally need good credit and sufficient income. The requirements for getting a secured loan tend to be more flexible, but you risk losing your collateral if you can’t repay what you’ve borrowed.

How do Christmas loans work?

You can usually find Christmas loans from online lenders and credit unions. Many banks also offer personal loans, although they don’t call them Christmas loans. Each lender determines its own rates, terms and application process. Because of these differences, it’s a good idea to shop around and compare options.

Some lenders require a minimum credit score, while others don’t check your credit at all. However, lenders who do not require credit checks usually charge high rates. In fact, these Christmas loans no credit check are basically payday loans with fees amounting to interest rates of 400% or more.

In contrast, traditional personal loans typically cap their interest rates at 36%, with some lenders offering rates as low as 4% or 5% to creditworthy borrowers. While you may be attracted to the fast funding and flexibility of a no credit check Christmas loan, we don’t recommend it due to the high borrowing costs.

How to get a Christmas loan

If you are interested in borrowing a Christmas loan, follow these steps:

  1. Check your credit. Before you take out a loan, it helps to know your credit score and what’s on your credit report. The stronger your credit, the better the rate you will likely get on a loan. You can check your credit score for free through various credit monitoring services and pull your credit reports through AnnualCreditReport.com
  2. Compare the prices. Compare several options before choosing a lender to find the best rates and conditions. You can usually find Christmas loans from online lenders and credit unions. If you want to borrow from a credit union, remember that you will need to become a member if you are approved and want to take the loan.
  3. Estimate your borrowing costs. Before borrowing, use Forbes Advisor’s Personal Loan Calculator to determine your loan costs. As mentioned, some Christmas loans are simply payday loans with exorbitant interest charges. Check if borrowing costs are acceptable before taking out a loan.
  4. Check your budget. Christmas loans are usually installment loans that you repay with fixed monthly payments. Make sure you can afford the monthly payments before you borrow so you don’t risk overdraft charges on your bank account or late payments on your loan.
  5. Submit your application. If you have found a loan offer you like, you can submit an application. You will need to provide personal information and any documentation required by the lender. The lender may or may not perform a serious credit check, which could temporarily lower your credit score by a few points.
  6. Track payments. If you are approved for the loan, check when your first payment is due. It may be a good idea to set up automatic payments from your bank account (if the lender hasn’t already) so you don’t fall behind; many lenders offer discounts on autopay rates. Make sure you have enough cash in your account to avoid overdraft charges.

How to get a Christmas loan with bad credit

Some online lenders offer bad credit Christmas loans. In fact, some types of Christmas loans do not require any credit checks. As mentioned, however, these no credit check loans are likely to be expensive.

Also, while these loans can provide quick and easy-to-obtain financing in an emergency, they don’t offer a long-term financial solution. According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), consumers who take out one unaffordable payday loan often end up taking out another to pay it off, getting stuck in a debt trap.

Advantages and disadvantages of Christmas loans

Before getting a Christmas loan to cover your holiday expenses, consider these pros and cons:

Benefits of Christmas Loans

  • Quick funding: Some Christmas lenders promise financing within one business day.
  • flexible lens: You can use a Christmas loan to cover the cost of gifts, travel or any other holiday expense.
  • Fixed payments and interest rates: Many Christmas loans have fixed rates and monthly payments, so you don’t have to worry about your bills changing over time.

Disadvantages of Christmas Loans

  • Potentially high interest rates: The loan may come with high interest charges, which means that your Christmas expenses will be much higher in the long term than they were at the time of purchase.
  • Could be a payday loan: Some online Christmas loans are simply payday loans with a different label. These loans often come with fees equivalent to annual percentage rates (APR) of 400% or more. Additionally, a lender may ask you to provide your bank account information up front so they can make automatic withdrawals whether or not you have enough money in your account.
  • Could lose warranty: If you take out a secured Christmas loan and cannot afford to repay it, you risk losing the asset you pledged.

Other options for buying Christmas gifts

Because Christmas loans can be expensive, it’s worth exploring other options. Here are some other types of financing to consider:

Buy now, pay later

Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) programs have become increasingly popular in recent years. As the name suggests, BNPL options allow you to purchase an item immediately and then pay it back in installments over time.

Some BNPL programs offer 0% interest. Often they ask you to pay 25% of the item price upfront, followed by three additional payments every two weeks. Other BNPL options offer longer repayment terms, although they may also charge interest.

You may be able to choose BNPL at checkout or use a BNPL app to fund your purchases. Be sure to read the terms and conditions of the contract before continuing.

Credit card

Credit cards are another option for covering your Christmas expenses. Keep in mind that credit cards can have high APRs if you don’t pay off your balance in full each month. The average APR is 15.13% in May 2022, according to the Federal Reserve.

However, you may be able to qualify for a new credit card with a 0% APR promotional period that extends from 12 to 24 months, depending on the card. This means you could avoid interest charges if you pay off your balance before the end of this period.

Keep in mind, however, that the interest charges will come into effect at the end of the promotional period. Be careful not to charge more than you can afford to pay within the specified time frame.

Savings

Perhaps the best way to afford the holiday season is to avoid going into debt altogether. Instead of paying monthly installments on a loan after Christmas, consider setting up automatic transfers from your checking account to a separate holiday savings account in the months leading up to Christmas.

Also, be sure to come up with a realistic spending plan that fits your budget. If you find yourself spending beyond your means, review your budget to remind yourself of what you can afford this year. By setting limits in advance, you may be able to get through the holiday season debt-free for the New Year.
