More Than Wheels: Not for Profit Organization Helping People Rebuild Credit

From their website:  

More Than Wheels is an award-winning nonprofit organization that helps people get the best deal on a reliable and fuel-efficient car. Since its establishment in 2001, More Than Wheels has helped nearly 1,200 New England residents get the best deal on a new or nearly new car by negotiating with dealers to secure the lowest price and providing the lowest interest rate available. We provide personal financial education by giving people the tools and knowledge they need to improve and maintain their financial stability—now and in the future.
As a result of the new car and empowered with the knowledge and skills, many are able to improve their job prospects, their family’s health and well-being, their credit and overall financial stability. A survey conducted by the Carsey Institute at the University of New Hampshire showed that among More Than Wheels clients surveyed:
  • 75 percent reported spending less on car repairs.
  • 73 percent reported a better overall financial outlook.
  • 50 percent are better able to get to their jobs.
  • 52 percent had improved access to health care.
  • 38 percent have improved access to nutritious food options.

FTC Required Disclosure

The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose any relationship I may have between a product manufacturer or service provider when I write about a product or service.

My intention for this blog is to provide consumers with the knowledge to improve their current personal credit situation. It is the readers responsibility to do additional research and to make responsible decisions based on their own personal financial situations.

My promise to my readers is as follows:

  • I am never paid to do a review of a product or service. I do not accept money to review credit cards, credit repair companies etc... When reviewing a product or service, I invest my own time and money to review and test credit products and credit services listed on this site.
  • No advertiser will ever influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. Just because there is an advertisement for a particular product or service on this site, it does not necessarily mean it has been endorsed by the author of this blog.
  • If I create a link to a product or service on this site, sometimes I may get paid a commission if you purchase the advertised product or service. These links are included after posts are written, and posts are never composed for the purpose of including advertising.

I feel the rules and practices listed above are just good business in today’s digital world. It is important for you the reader to understand the relationship between the person reviewing a product and the manufacturer or service provider.

If you don’t see a disclosure policy on a blog, that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
