EPISODE 62~ SAVE MORE: What’s Better Than Free?

Here at Easy Money we love cheap and the only thing we love more than cheap is free! So in today’s save more segment we’ve got some of both. The savvy editors at Consumers Checkbook magazine pored over the fine print of credit card contracts, warehouse club memberships, health insurance plans and more to find amazing freebies and cheapies and today we’re tapping into their knowledge. Please welcome Kevin Brasler, Executive Editor of Consumers Checkbook, back to Easy Money.
