Gerri Detweiler is in The Money Millhouse today with Ellie and Bethany to talk all things Credit. Before she stops in, Bethany talks about her favorite pair of shoes, why rules don’t apply to her, and unusual places you can find Bed Bath and Beyond coupons. Gerri talks about credit card myths, nuances in the credit space, and why closing credit accounts could hurt your credit score instead of hurting it. Also find out why Ellie and Bethany really mean when they call certain things “stupid.”
