The Money In Your Cushions | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

The Money In Your Cushions

To have a financial "cushion," I try to keep my monthly bills overpaid to the extent of at least one month ahead. With credit cards this is not possible. No matter how much I might pay this month (other than the total account balance), a minimum payment will still be required next month.

If, for example, I became hospitalized when I usually would have written and mailed my remittances, I could automatically become delinquent. And as a result, automatically my credit rating could change from excellent to poor.

THIS IS WRONG!
