Wisconsin Summer Fun "Hacks" and Adventures

Today, we're highlighting some of our favorite spots to stay cool this summer and beat the heat.

Posted on Jun 17, 2016 5:28:58 PM by Admin in FICO, in Personal Finance Tips, in Interest Rates

What's Your Credit Score?

That's a scary reality, which has implications far beyond not knowing a basic fact about yourself. Knowing your credit score is a powerful antidote to predatory lending, as well as a gauge of where you should improve your finances, and where you're succeeding.

Smarter Ways To Pay Your Bills

Let's be honest--there is nothing fun about paying a bill, nor has there ever been, nor will there ever be. The only silver lining is that paying our bills on time makes us responsible, contributing members of society--and yes, there can be that satisfaction that comes with knowing that your hard work is keeping the lights on, and food in the fridge.

Where To Find Summer Activities for Families On a Budget

The end of the school year is finally upon us, and with the end of school comes a new challenge for Wisconsin families: what to do with all our kids? Not all families have the same financial resources to send kids to "sleep-away" camps, or even day camps, and not all families have one parent who stays at home. But just because resoucres might be thin for indulgent summer adventures, doesn't mean you have to be locked out of fun, safe, and helpful resources while your kids are home 24-7.

When To Ask for a Co-Signer Release

If you've ever had to reach out to friends or family to co-sign a financial document (like a student loan, or for a car), then you may be wondering for how long--and to what end--having your loved one attached to such an expense is necessary. The benefits of having a co-signer are plenty--especially for someone trying to build credit, because a co-signer essentially ties their credit score and repayment responsibilities to your loan application--but there are just as many reasons why it might be wise for you to consider asking for a co-signer release.

I-90 Road Construction In 2016

Posted on May 25, 2016 4:06:04 PM by Admin in Traffic, in Summer Construction, in Tips and Tricks

I-90 Road Construction In 2016

UPDATE: If you're trying to get to Easton Motors of West Salem this summer, please take special care and visit our driving directions on how to get to us hassle-free from La Crosse and around I-90.

Summer is the start of a lot of wonderful things in our part of the country, whether it's baseball games, family gatherings, trips to the lake, or just generally enjoying the sunshine (which can sometimes feel so rare!). But summer also invites a deluge of road closures and construction, and if you're a business owner in Wisconsin--big or small--or someone who's told Amazon to keep it's money--you're shopping local--you've probably cursed our recent spat of construction on Interstate 90 and Highway 16. Maybe more than once.
