In addition to keeping in the financial know, you may be interested in checking your credit score and report.
¹The credit scores provided under the offers described here use the Equifax Credit Score, which is a proprietary credit model developed by Equifax. The Equifax Credit Score and 3-Bureau scores are each based on the Equifax Credit Score model, but calculated using the information in your Equifax, Experian and TransUnion credit files. The Equifax Credit Score is intended for your own educational use. It is also commercially available to third parties along with numerous other credit scores and models in the marketplace. Please keep in mind third parties are likely to use a different score when evaluating your creditworthiness. Also, third parties will take into consideration items other than your credit score or information found in your credit file, such as your income.
²The Automatic Fraud Alert feature is made available to consumers by Equifax Information Services LLC and fulfilled on its behalf by Equifax Consumer Services LLC.
³Equifax Credit Report Control™ is only available while you have a current subscription to Equifax Complete Premier.

(Atlanta – November 8, 2012) – Equifax today announces the grand prize winner of the Family Money Matters Video Contest: “10 Tips to Save Money on Groceries.” The contest celebrates the independent ingenuity consumers have adopted to make ends meet during these tough economic times. The grand prize winner is receiving a $1000 Discover gift card.
All of the finalist videos shared valuable advice for managing money at home, finding ways to stretch a dollar and setting financial goals.
“The Equifax Finance Blog is a resource for expert personal finance advice and information, but we wanted to turn it over to our readers. This contest has shown us that some of the best personal finance advice comes from experience,” said Ilyce Glink, managing editor of the Equifax Finance Blog. “Each of the finalist entries had a valuable piece of advice that everyone could incorporate into their budget and daily money habits. In fact, I’ve picked up a few tricks myself.”
In her video, Kaity R. shares her family’s strategies for saving money every week at the grocery store. Her tricks include buying from bulk bins because it saves money on packaging, and finding out which days her local grocery stores offer the best deals.
Her video, “10 Tips to Save Money on Groceries” was chosen as one of five finalists by a panel of judges, and then voted as the favorite video by the Equifax blog readers.
Kaity said savvy grocery shopping was just one way her family manages their finances.
“We are a family of three living on one salary. In the short-term, we are focused on being resourceful and finding creative ways to pay the bills and have fun on the cheap,” said Kaity. “We’re working towards our main long-term goal of total debt freedom and after that, hope to finally take the honeymoon trip we never had!”
The winning entry and the other four finalist entries can be seen on the Equifax Finance Blog.
