New to the website: Credit cards and you

May 28, 2018

We use them all the time — to make purchases, shop online, and collect points. Credit cards are practical and convenient. But they can cause headaches. For example, if you’re charged twice for something you bought. Or if your card falls into the wrong hands.

We’ve published four new pages on credit cards to our money & debt section:

Many thanks to Vancouver lawyer Anna Fung, KC for reviewing these pages for legal accuracy.

We are grateful to work on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, whose Peoples continue to live on and care for these lands.
