Should a married couple take out a joint car loan?
My wife and I want to get a loan to buy a second car. Should we apply jointly?
Getting a joint car loan can be very beneficial depending on individual incomes and credit scores. If both the borrower and co-borrower have good credit and a healthy, reliable income, then together they could qualify for a larger auto loan and a lower interest rate. However, it can be a difficult process to remove a co-borrower from the loan if that becomes necessary in the future.

What GPA do I need to get a discount on my insurance policy?
Will a 3.2 GPA help me save money on my car insurance? I have my first transcript back from college and I did pretty well: 3.2. This may be the first time I can get a discount on my car insurance and I wasn't sure what the GPA cut off is.
