Kiplinger’s Magazine Free Financial Advice

I get a subscription to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and I noticed an awesome thing in the latest issue:

Kiplinger’s Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Days

Basically, on Thursday, August 30, you can phone in from 9am to 6pm ET at 888-919-2345 and an advisor from the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) will be on stand-by to answer your financial questions.

You can also email your questions in early at and you’ll get back an answer on that day also.

It’s great because these advisors usually charge between $100 and $250 an hour and on this day it’s completely free!  And it’s for anyone, not just those who subscribe to the magazine.  If that’s not frugal I don’t know what is!   I’m definitely going to ask some questions to see what answers I get back.

However, keep in mind, some questions may not be answered because the situation is too specific or there is not enough information to.  But, hey, it’s worth a try!

  2. I have about 25,000 in a Money Market CD, that is collecting about 5.3%. I owe about 29000 on a home equity line of credit.I believe it is at about 7% right now. I am thingkin of taking the money from my CD and paying down that line of credit, to cut down my monthly payment. Would this be a wise thing to do?
