In this week's podcast: credit card providers taken to task over charging
In this week's podcast, Which? Money editor James Daley discusses the credit card providers being forced to clean up their act when it comes to disclosing costs and charges. With the help of Which? Money helpline member Teresa Fritz, we also highlight those banks and building societies selling unsuitable investment plans to their customers and tell you how to avoid this by seeking the best independent financial advice.
With most of us still shouldering our way through the heavy wind of recession, we've also decided to take a look at a couple of increasingly popular 'group buying' websites. Group buying helps give people a forum in which to bulk buy products with similarly minded consumers, thus benefiting from discounts off the retail price. We've seen up to 70% savings on some items, so it's definitely worth a look.
