Shop for a Car Loan Before You Shop for the Car Shopping for Homeowner's Insurance and Private Mortgage Insurance

Shopping for a Good College through a Good Price

Shop for a good price on a college, not just on the college financing. "For most families, the price of tuition and room and board should be an important part of the decision process, just like buying a home, a car or any other major purchase," said Daniels. "The cost should be considered along with the academic programs of a school."
For many families, the comparison shopping should include options such as two-year community colleges and schools close to home, which can help save on room and board, said Kirk Daniels, a supervisor in the FDIC's consumer affairs section.
