With many Coloradans’ budgets stretched thin this holiday season, a new report from the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL) cautions people who may consider taking out a loan to pay for expensive products.

In addition, CoPIRG Foundation cautioned consumers against pitfalls in Buy Now, Pay Later offers. Our consumer protection tips highlight things to know and what to avoid.
