Today on the Clark Howard Show, Ilyce Glink filled in. It was Black Friday (or “bleak Friday,” as the Wall Street Journal termed it), and she did her annual Deals of the Day show. She discussed what some people were looking for and put up deals at her blog. She also talked about the three car manufacturers in Detroit and how the president of Ford so far hasn’t taken a paycut, despite earning more than $21 million last year. She also talked about consumer spending and how it plunged in October. Check writing scams are on the rise, according to the FBI, and Ilyce ran down how these scams typically work and what to watch out for. She answered calls about bad-apple scooter dealers, credit card interest rates, credit scores, whether it’s worth an extra $40,000 to go to a brand-name school over a state school, balance transfers, inheritances, annuities, buying a house with zero down, and whether a credit card purchase would tank a credit score.
