This January, don’t fall for the “on sale” signs! The first sale sign you see is not always the best deal available. Most times, the prices are doubled! Retailers use the festive period to cash in and consumers end up paying twice the price they would normally. They trick you with too good to be true promotions like buy 2 get one free or buy now – pay later. The question to ask yourself is, if I only need one, why should I buy 2? If I can’t afford it now, why do I think I can afford it later? Is it a financially viable option?

What do I do if one of my credit providers contacts me directly to make a new arrangement?
If you are under debt review with DebtBusters we would have already negotiated with your creditors on a repayment plan, as we are currently achieving a 92% success rate. If a credit provider or debt collector, does contact then contact DebtBusters and we will advise you on the best debt solution for your needs. Never make any arrangements with a credit provider without discussing it with DebtBusters, as this can have a negative on your whole repayment plan with the other credit providers. Unfortunately some debt collectors will use tactics, such as ‘we don’t have you under debt review’ or ‘we terminated your debt review’. This is why it is vital you contact DebtBusters on 0869 99 06 06 or www.debtbusters.co.za.
