This week: structured investment products, Christmas credit cards and pizza for £1
In this week's podcast, Which? investment expert Gareth Shaw lifts the lid on structured investment products. Increasingly, they're being sold to consumers in high-street banks and building societies - but are they really suitable for the majority of savers? To find out how to spot a structured product, and why you should think twice before putting your cash into one, tune in now...
Elsewhere, our credit card guru Martyn Saville pops into the studio to explain why paying for Christmas presents with plastic needn't mean going into debt this year. With top 0%-on-purchases and cashback deals available, using a credit card cleverly could help you spread the cost of buying gifts without paying interest - or might even earn you extra money or rewards.
Finally, don't miss this week's money saving tip: why the latest voucher from Pizza Express means paying £1 for a pizza could count as your good deed for the day.
