The Skinny on Credit Cards by Jim Randel

The Skinny on Credit Cards is the story of Billy and Beth, a typical American couple, as they struggle with the use (and abuse) of their credit cards. Our story also looks at their 18 year old son, Jake, a college freshman who loves the idea of having his own credit cards. Through their experiences, we learn about the incredible convenience, heartache and commentary generated by that little piece of plastic (3.370” x 2.125”).

Our goal is to educate you. We believe that if you understand the rules of the game, the principles of credit card use (and potential abuse), then the decisions you make about credit and debt will hopefully be good ones which make your life better and more enjoyable.
