WASHINGTON (11/30/12)--H&FF Radio this past Sunday outlined the holiday spending picture, free online holiday shipping, and guarding one's property from heirs in a hurry.

  • "Holiday Spending." Bill Hampel, senior vice president of research and policy analysis and chief economist for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Washington D.C., shared seasonal shopping statistics.
  • "Protecting Assets from Greedy Heirs." Sandra Block, senior associate editor at Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Washington D.C., suggested ways for consumers to hold on to their property until they're ready to give it up.
  • "Free Shipping Day." Luke Knowles, CEO of Kinoli Inc., Fort Collins, Colo., and co-founder of free shipping day, revealed how to ship holiday packages free on Dec. 17.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.

Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. ET on the Radio America Network. The show also is carried on American Forces Radio Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is sponsored by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network.
