Getting America’s Students Smart About Credit
In Celebration of the 8th Annual Get Smart About Credit Day
Bankers celebrated their eighth annual American Bankers Association Education Foundation’s Get Smart About Credit Day in high school and college classrooms, explaining the dos and don’ts of wise credit use October 21, 2010.
Those who don’t receive an in-person lesson from a banker volunteer can get credit education resources from the Get Smart About Credit website: www.getsmartaboutcredit.com. The website brings components of the Get Smart About Credit program into the homes of families across the country. The site offers tips, quizzes and a host of credit-related information.
Celebrating its eighth anniversary, Get Smart About Credit Day brought thousands of bankers and students together for lessons on developing good credit habits, such as paying on time, protecting your identity, using credit wisely and not borrowing more than you can repay.
