New Credit Rules One Year Later: What Effect has it had?

One year after new credit card regulations were enacted to stop some questionable billing practices and where are we? 

  • Over the limit penalty charges have been dramatically decreased. Previously, card holders could be hit with over the limit charges that effectively kept them over the limit. Now that has been curtailed enough where the monthly payment can be applied to the actual balance owed.

 

  • Before the new rules, card issuers would routinely approve transactions that would cause cardholders to exceed their limits resulting in the dreaded over the limit fees. Now customers cannot be penalized for going over their limits unless they say they want such transactions to go through.

Loudoun Business Owners: Are You Looking For Ways to Reach Your Audience?

Loudoun Business Owners: Are You Looking For Ways to Reach Your Audience?

If you own or manage a business in Loudoun County, you understand the challenges that are sometimes associated with reaching your audience.

Have you considered the benefits of charitable donations to schools that service the families you wish to reach?

For instance, Sycolin Creek Elementary School PTA is hosting a Talent Show next Friday. The SCES Emmys will showcase the talent of nearly 150 students! And parents---who will surely be in mass attendance for the event---will "shop" at the school's auction.

What does that mean for you?

It's the chance to give back to your community with an investment that's small in comparison to your business's exposure of hundreds of families.
