I don't like Suze Orman. Mostly because she is from the Dr. Phil "I won't help you until I've totally humiliated you and made sure you realize what a stupid piece of sh*t you are" school of "self help" (which isn't self help at all) television. I also don't like that she's always calling her viewers "Girlfriend" Girlfriend, I am not your girlfriend. I don't like her because she perpetuates the stereotype that all women are idiots when it comes to money and if it wasn't for her we would all be in the poorhouse.
Now I don't like her because I think maybe she's proving that we are all idiots. She's hawking her own pre-paid credit card that is the greatest card ever, if she does say so herself. Its so wonderful because she's made a deal with one of the credit reporting agencies to report your usage of this card and maybe someday it will improve your credit score.
Um. No. It won't. Because a pre-paid credit card is not credit. You can't miss a payment. You can't screw it up. So you can't prove that you can handle credit because it's um, NOT CREDIT!
Am I the only one that sees this? I've heard this woman interviewed by half a dozen people on this and NOBODY has asked her about this little detail. What am I missing?
