This site starts with a “Credit Card Primer” that teaches teens about credit cards, interest, and debt and then asks questions to check for understanding. After learning the pros and cons of using cards, teens can move along to the “Case Files” section. Here they can make decisions about what purchases would be smart to make on credit and what purchases should not be made. They can answer questions on their choices. Finally, teens can move on to the final section “Choosing and Using a Credit Card.” Here they learn credit card terminology, interest, and payment rates.
