Christmas club could halt debt
#1 Dec 17, 2007
While it's nice to have a Christmas Club it's part of the old deal. Whenever you have a savings account that has a withdrawl limit, the bank can use that money to loan out. Back when you received 5% compounded quarterly this worked out fine. In todays banks you usually get .025...I'm not going to give them my money to loan out at 18% while they only give me a pittance, I'm going to invest the amount into something that yields a higher return for that year and have a little extra to spend. I might change my mind if the banks stop gouging us, but not until then.

18%? Not. Not at a bank anyway.
