Nuru Personal Finance Cards Review and Giveaway
Sometime back I received a deck of Nuru Personal finance cards in the mail from the folks over at Nuru Planet. Basically what Nuru Planet has done is take a vast amount of personal finance information and placed it on a deck of cards about the same size as a standard deck of playing cards (2.5″ x 3.5″).
Each card contains information on a personal finance topic that is both informative and easy to read. The deck consists of 28 cards that cover 7 different categories:
- Essential Vocabulary
- Personal Planning
- Retirement Vehicles
The cards are durable, waterproof and pocket sized. The last feature is the most attractive to me, as you can just keep them in your pocket and whenever you have time and read through them. I’m one who likes to maximize my time and these cards could really provide you with something educational to do while waiting for the bus, sitting in traffic, waiting at the doctors office, etc. They even come with a ring to hold them together.
Who are they suited for
The cards contain a vast amount of information, but mostly on basic financial topics. They would be best for someone with little to no financial knowledge and probably not the best choice for someone who reads lots of personal finance blogs or personal finance books. Personally I think they would make an excellent gift for a high school or college student, especially for the price of only $10.
Would I buy them?
I wouldn’t buy them for myself, but would definitely consider purchasing them for someone else. I knew all of the information on the cards already and personally don’t like carrying things in my pockets, but I know quit a few people whom I think would really like them.
If you’re interested in purchasing a set, head over to Nuru Planet (not an affiliate link). They also have decks for other topics including cars, golf, emergency first aid, and nutrition. I am seriously considering purchasing a deck of the emergency first aid cards to keep in my truck.
If you would like a set, I’m giving away the deck I received. Entering is easy, just add a comment and tell me why you would like to win them. Make sure you include a valid email. I’ll randomly select and announce the winner on February 2nd, so you have until the February 1st at 12:00 noon EST to enter. Good luck!
