Creditplus Monthly Blog Round Up – May

roundup-may-imagejpg

Last month we welcomed our first edition of our monthly blog round up. Giving you a recap of all the blogs we had shared in April.  Designed to help you see what you have missed and for us to recap on the content we have created.

This month’s round up  features 17 blog posts with content from: Mark Humphrys, Sam Chilcott, Stephanie Hughes, Tom Wood, Sarah Griffiths and Louise Haines.

 

The blogging team have had a super busy month as we have all been involved with the preparation of Bournemouth Wheels Festival along with the first launch of our helpful car finance terms pages, which feature an A to Z of those common terms that come up when you apply for car finance.

We also prepared for Sam Chilcott’s last month at Creditplus, as she jumped ship to work for the property industry to help fulfil her dream of owning a Bugatti Veyron.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank her for her contribution to the Creditplus Blog and wish her well in her new career.

So time for the round up….
