The Top 5 Halloween Candies of 2018

By acashel | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, October 26th, 2018 at 4:38 PM

The countdown to Halloween is on! That means it’s time to figure out what kind of candy to give out to all the trick or treaters in your neighborhood. So, to help you out, we’ve put together a little list of the top 5 Halloween candies of 2018, to help you come to a decision!

5 – Sour Patch Kids

Nobody likes candy corn. That’s a pretty general rule we’re okay with throwing out there. Good for you if you’re going against the grain, but don’t get it for the kids in your neighborhood. Unless… you go with Sour Patch Kids’ Candy Corn, a new treat they’re trying out this year that looks pretty delicious!

4 – Twizzlers Pull’n’Peel

While black licorice is almost as toxic as candy corn and is sure to land you on the “do not stop” list, Twizzlers are always a good bet. This year, the company has created some fun Orange & Black Cherry flavors for Halloween. It remains to be seen if the new flavors are good, but everyone likes to try something new.

3 – Hershey’s Kisses

While people might not always go out of their way to buy Hershey’s Kisses, nobody complains when they get a chance to eat them. Kisses are simple and delicious, and this year’s Spooky Kisses wrappers are sure to liven up your trick-or-treat bowl.

2 – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Reese’s are generally number one on most lists, but they’ve got a couple of new gimmicks that you can pick up that kids are sure to love. One of them is Monster Mania, which is similar to their Christmas trees and Easter eggs, in that they’re simply shaped into different monsters. Another option is to go with the Glow in the Dark wrappers, which is pretty cool!

1 – Kit Kat

That brings us, finally, to the #1 option, which are Kit Kat bars. While you can never go wrong with a classic fun size Kit Kat, there are a few special options to choose from this year. Spooky foils and Glow in the Dark wrappers are similar to other options on the list, but they’re also offering Kit Kat Dark this year, which is a dark chocolate version of their normal miniatures.

Whatever you decide to get, you should be fine! What’s your favorite Halloween treat? Tell us in the comments below!

Fall Care Tips for Your Car

By acashel | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, October 12th, 2018 at 4:49 PM

October signals the start of Fall but it’s also National Car Care Month!  Now is an excellent time to tune up your vehicle. Continue reading to learn three quick maintenance tips that will get your car ready for any weather!

Check Your Tires

Check tire pressure, including the spare. Tires can lose one pound of pressure for every drop of 10-degrees Fahrenheit so it’s important to follow the pressure outlined in the owner’s manual for your vehicle. You should also inspect tires for bulges and bald spots.

Check Your Brakes

Fall is an ideal time to have your brake system checked. Brakes are necessary to vehicle safety and extremely important when driving on slippery roads. A full inspection should include brake linings, rotors and drums.

Charge Your Battery

Check your battery connections to make sure they are tight, clean and free of corrosion. Cold weather can be hard on batteries so you’ll want to check your battery and charging system. If you’re battery is more than three years old, you may want to replace it since there are no warning signs for a failing battery.

How to Improve Your Credit Score

By acashel | Posted in Uncategorized on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 at 5:05 PM

Is your credit less than great? Don’t worry, we can help! While improving your credit is a process that does take some time, it’s not as intimidating as it sounds. Take a look at these four relatively easy things that you can do to start improving your credit today.

1. Pay Your Bills

Late payments, even if only a few days late, can have a significant negative impact on your credit score. Payment history is one of the biggest influences on credit scores.

If historically you haven’t been great about paying bills on time, you can turn things around if you begin making payments on time. The longer you pay bills on time, the more your credit score should increase. Since older credit issues have less of an impact, poor credit performance won’t haunt you forever.

 

2. Credit Limit Increase

While this may sound counter-intuitive, increasing your credit limit can be very helpful in improving your credit score. One thing that factors into your credit score is credit utilization, which is the ratio of how much money you owe compared with how much credit you have.

For example, if you have a $2,000 credit limit and a $1,000 balance, your credit utilization is 50 percent. If you’ve maxed out that $2,000 limit, your utilization is 100 percent. The less credit you are using, the better it is for your overall credit score.

So if you’ve maxed out your $2,000 card and get a limit increase to $5,000, you’ve instantly cut your credit utilization rate in half. But a word of caution, it’s crucial that you don’t spend any of your new credit. If you do, it defeats the purpose of getting a limit increase.

3. Make Multiple Small Payments

If you can’t, or simply don’t want to increase your credit limit, you can lower your credit utilization by making multiple small payments or micropayments. So rather than making payments on your credit card bills once a month, you make 2, 3 or 4 payments. You can even treat your credit card as a debit card, paying online as soon as you see a purchase is posted.

4. Check Free Credit Reports & Dispute Errors

Everyone has three credit reports — one from each of the 3 major credit bureaus: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. It’s easy to check your credit reports from each of these reporting agencies. Each year, you’re entitled to a free copy of all 3 reports under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Since credit scores are based on the data in your credit reports, it’s extremely important to make sure that all of that information in the reports is accurate. If there mistake or discrepancy it can have an impact on your credit score.

In some cases requesting a correction to a mistake in your credit report can have an immediate positive effect on your score.

Purchasing a vehicle and making payments on time every month can also increase your credit score! If you’re searching for a new or used vehicle, we can help! We have one of the largest selections of new and used vehicles in Texas. Take a look at our inventory today!
