What do you think?

Is there something about money management you wish you heard more (or less) about? If so, here is your chance to voice your opinion. Capital One is seeking input about some recent content additions to MoneyWi$e, an interactive e-learning program. The five new modules offer timely information and helpful tips, exercises, and printable tools to help individuals better understand and apply basic financial concepts. The new modules just became available to the public and cover the following topics:

  • Money Management

  • Building Credit
  • Rebuilding Credit
  • Savings to Build Wealth

To view the new modules, visit Capital One's financial education Web site and click on “Learn More” on the navigation bar. After you have reviewed the programs, please tell them what you think. Your opinions will help make MoneyWi$e is the best that it can be.

BTW, if you find that you love telling people what you think, keep an eye out for a Pinecone Research recruitment banner. Pinecone Research periodically seeks new online survey takers—and pays for their opinions!
