Hip Hip Hurray! A Giveaway: NURU Personal Finance Cards

Posted by Marianne Thomas | 2/18/2009 05:56:00 PM | | 3 comments »

I'm always happy to offer great giveaways of useful products to my fabulous readers, so when Crystalee from NURU contacted me about reviewing her product, NURU Knowledge for Real Life: Personal Finance, I was happy to oblige.

Just as the image caption states, the Personal Finance tips from NURU come as a deck of (30) plastic cards held together by a metal ring. They're the same size as a deck of playing cards, but the Personal Finance cards are far more useful. In bite-sized bits of information meant to be read in a short span of time (like a coffee break or on the bus/train or during your kid's soccer practice), NURU's Personal Finance tips cover these seven topics:

:: Essential Vocabulary
:: Personal Planning
:: Investing
:: Loans
:: Retirement Vehicles
:: Credit
:: Insurance

Another useful feature: the cards cross reference each other. When a topic is mentioned briefly on one card, the card number that offers the full explanation of the term is noted in a small box so you can easily find a fuller explanation of a related term.

The information is easy to read and isn't purely definitions or mini-lectures. Also listed on the cards are more interactive components like this question in reference to negative amortization home loans, "Why would anyone do this?" or a handy list titled, "Questions to ask before investing."

These cards are a great resource for improving your knowledge about Personal Finance and are super-easy to take with you everywhere. And as I flipped through the set Crystalee so kindly provided for me to review, I thought about how useful these would be for recent or upcoming college graduates.

I highly recommend the NURU Personal Finance cards and I'm so happy to offer my fabulous readers the chance to win a set!

I have (3) sets, valued at $10.00 each, to giveaway! Woot! (Thank you, Crystalee!)
