Buy now! Pay later? Be careful when paying for online shopping in installments

Many online shops offer “buy now, pay later” installment services that target high school and college students. These services are quickly gaining in popularity allowing shoppers to purchase just about anything – from electronics to a pair of shoes – by agreeing to pay a series of smaller installments.

Kelvin Collins is president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving the Fall Line Corridor.

Before signing up, consumers should research the option carefully so they can make an informed purchasing decision and avoid getting in over their heads.

How paying in installments works

During the checkout process with an online store, in addition to the option to pay with a debit or credit card, there is an option to choose to pay for the order in a specified number of installments. The opportunity to split up payments is appealing to many shoppers, but especially shoppers who may not have

Accessorize Your Style – Fort Worth Weekly

This summer, think funky, think fringe, think chunky, think twisted.

The Twisted Gypsy, that is.

Nearly every inch of the 200-square-foot store is packed with fashion jewelry and a few dozen shirts and dresses.

Owner Kathleen Garza said she leased the building five years ago, which makes her one of the older tenants along Race Street, which now bustles with restaurants, retailers, and entertainment options. Throughout her nearly two decades running The Twisted Gypsy, which began life as a pop-up, Garza has always focused on accessories.

Long, beaded necklaces offer versatile shapes and lengths.

“My jewelry is fun, funky fashion jewelry,” she said. “I like a variety. I don’t carry a whole bunch of the same item. I might buy one or two pieces. It’s always different and changing.”

Earrings are always big sellers, she continued. Necklaces and bracelets are a bit trickier because of fit,

15 Beautiful Summer Diffuser Blends
15 Beautiful Summer Diffuser Blends

By Alison Angold | Qualified Aromatherapist | CIDESCO ITEC

Summer – the best time of the year – at least I think so! Those days that you can get up knowing you can just pull a pair of shorts and a t-shirt on, and go – no need to think about wrapping up, taking a coat, or that it might rain!

Long days, warm evenings, summer holidays – all these things make summer my favourite time of year!

But alas, summer is short-lived – at least here in the UK it is! I am always looking for ways to prolong the summer months, and creating summer diffuser blends to burn around the house, is the ideal way to do this!

There are many different essential oils that are ideal for diffusing and using to create a feeling of summer but the best, and my favourite are;

  • Lavender
  • Lemongrass
  • Eucalyptus
  • Orange

Melvin Capital’s Demise Presents a Beauty of an Opportunity

In the current bear market, selling for non-fundamental reasons can often provide an opportunity to buy a bargain.

This past week, Melvin Capital, an embattled $7 billion hedge fund, announced it’s closing down after steep losses over the past year and a half. Recall, Melvin was the prime target of a short-squeeze in GameStop (GME) and a handful of other stocks they were known to be short.

Melvin Capital ran a concentrated portfolio and was the top holder in several companies. These positions have been liquidated in the past month in anticipation of closing the fund. The selling in their list of stocks into an already weak market has exacerbated the downdraft in those names.

Sifting through Melvin’s portfolio for a buying opportunity uncovers Coty (COTY) , the multinational beauty company. The soon-to-be-defunct hedge fund owned 48.7 million shares earlier in the year, almost a 6% stake. Coty’s shares are
