UT does not endorse any bank or credit union. You can use any financial institution that you wish.
BAD DEBT – the payments last longer than the item purchased (food, gas, even football tickets and clothing)GOOD DEBT – house, education. Something that appreciates in value or usefulness outlasts payments
Use CC with caution – emergencies (health, auto, family issue) or something that you KNOW you can pay off within 30 days. If you use CC because you don’t have the money to buy something that you WANT, how are you going to pay the CC bill? You’ve already spent future money by using CC to buy something, because you haven’t actually purchased anything – you’ve taken out a loan by using CC.
