About the Dollars & Sense Financial Blog

How many times have you learned something after-the-fact and said, “Man, I wish I had known that before… [insert oversight of your choosing]”? This site is for people who have been there and done that, which as far as we can tell, is pretty much everyone. We know how that feels and that’s why we created the Dollars & Sense blog – to combat having moments like this when it comes to your money.

We provide content that helps people from every walk of life make sense of rapidly changing trends in personal finance and how it can impact your day-to-day life. We’ll provide content that helps you understand everything from the top apps for comparing costs before you buy, strategies for walking out of your favorite store with a smaller receipt, what that new work-sponsored plan means for you, and basically, everything you want or need to know about getting the most out of your finances. And who doesn’t want to know how to keep more of their money?

About Check ‘n Go

Check ‘n Go has been a leader in the short-term lending and financial services industry for more than 20 years. We deliver flexible and reliable loan products to consumers who have traditionally been ignored or underserved by the conventional banking system.

When Check ‘n Go was founded in 1994, cash-strapped consumers had few, if any, choices when they needed help meeting a temporary budget shortfall. That’s why we opened our first location in a small storefront in Covington, Kentucky, lending modest sums of money to hardworking neighbors. From these humble beginnings, we’ve grown to become a preferred lender for more than just emergency cash. Our expanding line of products puts an emphasis on flexibility and choice so you can choose how much you want to borrow and for how long.

Today we operate more than 1,100 Check ‘n Go locations in 25 states, as well as Check ‘n Go Online, a state-of-the-art Internet lending service that allows individuals to apply for a loan from the comfort of their own home or while on-the go. Our customers can access their account online 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In the two decades since our founding, we’ve conducted over 50 million transactions.

We’ll continue to search for new and innovative ways to make financial resources more accessible and easier to use but our guiding philosophy will always remain the same: provide the help underserved consumers need, with the customer service they deserve.
