Advertiser Disclosure Comments 0 Comments

Tune in to this week’s installment of The Credit Line, hosted by Credit.com’s chairman and co-founder Adam Levin on Los Angeles’ KFWB 980 AM and streaming live this Saturday, November 19, at 9 a.m. PST/Noon EST.

The show is co-hosted by L.A. radio personality Jeff Levy.

Don’t Blow Your Budget on Black Friday

This year, 152 million people are expected to hit the stores on the weekend following Thanksgiving—up 27% from last year.  But the lure of big discounts on Black Friday can put you in the red if you get carried away, and over the course of the holiday shopping season, many people end up racking up credit card debt that they’re left paying off months later.

Joining us is personal finance expert Lynnette Khalfani-Cox, author of numerous books, including the New York Times bestseller Zero Debt: The Ultimate Guide to Financial Freedom. Lynnette once had $100,000 in credit card debt, before paying it all off in three years and turning her financial life around. She’ll offer up a strategy for getting through Black Friday with your budget intact.

Tune in to next Saturday’s show for Cyber Monday shopping tips.
