Don’t be a Jack…. Avoid Credit Card Aftershock.

Meet Jack- the overspender. Jack’s like a lot of us. He loves the convenience of his credit card but ends up overspending every month. He’s tried budgeting but can’t seem to stick to it.

Like the average Canadian (who now finds themselves in over $27k in debt), Jack is suffering from the aftershock of overspending and too much debt.

Jack is out spending money he doesn’t have and keeps thinking the reward points will more than make up for it. Whenever he wants something, he just charges it to his credit card and has no real idea of what he can afford.

Every month he opens his credit card statement and is shocked to find out how much he owes.

He tries getting in control by sticking to his debit card but that doesn’t seem to work.

Pay out your Credit Card Balance with MogoLiquid

If you carry credit card debt and you just pay the minimum payment, it can easily take decades to pay off your debt.

If this sounds familiar, you should consider paying off the balance with an installment loan.

MogoLiquid is an installment loan with set monthly payments and terms of up to 5 years, so you won’t stay in debt forever.

In a few easy steps, Jack has stopped overspending and is now living aftershock free. He’s more in control of his spending than ever, and is making sure he only spends his money when it makes sense. No longer the nerd with the spending problem, Jack has become the hero with his finances in control.
