Often it seems like life is one 365-day spending spree.

In December, we pay for holiday gifts. In July, it’s those family trips. The months in between? We fix the transmission, cover tuition, buy a gas grill and pay the doc’s bill.  Hey, no one is suggesting you pinch every penny. But a good credit card, a smart payoff plan, and some timely tips from Education First can help keep things under control.

Open a Credit Card:

Our interest-free grace period can save you money while you get into the groove of spending smart. Additionally, our uChoose Rewards® Program allows you to earn points on purchases that are redeemable for event tickets, merchandise, travel, and more. Get started here.

Use Our Free Valet:
