MONEYTALK with Al Suffrin
December 01, 2006 at 12:26 pm
Dear Mr. Suffrin: I am just starting college and I want to get a credit card to help build my credit. Which type of credit card should I get?

Is it a good idea to get one, and is there a certain card I should look for? If not, why not.

Dear Mr. Suffrin: I’m 13-years-old and I’m saving my money so I can buy a car when I turn 18. I earn $60 a month babysitting for neighbors. I also get $40 per month for doing my chores around the house. My mom gives me $10 for every A I make on my semester report cards, and I always get three or four of them, so that’s $60 to $80 per year. She pays for my clothes and other expenses. How much should I save for my car - and where should I put the money? I have $500 in the bank now. - Looking Ahead in Hahnville
