Your credit history is a written record that summarizes what type of credit you have used and your history of making payments on time. You should want to know what your lenders are saying about you. Your credit report contains a great deal of information about you and you have a right to see (and should want to examine) a credit report that describes the information in your credit file. Reviewing your credit file/report is very important. You have a right to see your credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies: Trans Union, Equifax and Experian.

We usually don't think about high utility bills and taxes while the weather is comfortable and cool. But summer is exactly the time to think about energy efficiency, and now's the time to act. Replacing inefficient windows and doors, heating and cooling equipment and insulation can decrease energy bills and make a home more comfortable. With the federal tax credits and utility company energy rebates, the benefits go beyond lower utility bills. A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in what you owe in federal taxes.

People who shop with a credit card usually spend more than people who pay cash. While that can be a disadvantage to shopping with a card, there are times when using a credit card can be advantageous for consumers. Using a credit card to pay for car repairs is a good example. By the time the bill arrives, a driver should know whether or not a repair has been completed. Travel is another. A credit card usually is necessary to reserve an airline ticket, hotel room or rental car. If accommodations fail to live up to advertised claims, credit card companies can be helpful in resolving a dispute.
