A new TransUnion study found that people who monitor their own credit files open significantly more new auto loans and credit cards, and perform generally as well on those loans as consumers who do not monitor their own credit.
The company's study determined that consumers who monitor their credit in any given credit score range not only open far more new accounts than those who do not, but it may indicate that these consumers recognized the importance of a healthy credit profile, and are actively looking for ways to improve it prior to making new purchases.
Halloween came early to transportation company MetroGistics, as the company welcomed vampires, zombies and other two-legged creatures to its first Monster Mash fundraiser.
Benefiting two charities for four-legged friends, the Monster Mash raised more than $18,000 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis and Project VIP (Very Important Pets). It was held on Oct. 20 at MetroGistics’ headquarters.
