Personal finance guru Suze Orman says she never would have introduced her prepaid debit card if there wasn't a possibility that some day it could be used in credit scoring. Orman launched the Approved Card this month. She has partnered with TransUnion, one of the three major credit bureaus, in a pilot program to see whether spending activity on the prepaid card could be used to develop a credit score. Some credit experts are doubtful. People load money on a prepaid card that can be used at places that accept plastic.

The best advice money expert Suze Orman ever got: "Don't talk yourself into trusting anyone." When Orman was a Berkeley, Calif., waitress nearly 25 years ago, she received $50,000 to open her own restaurant. She hired a financial adviser to help her with the money, but within four months, all the money was gone. Figuring she knew more about money than so-called financial pros, Orman applied for a job at Merrill Lynch and was hired as a stockbroker trainee in 1980. Now Orman is the author of six best-selling financial books, host of her own CNBC-TV show, and a frequent guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Larry King Live.

Update: A spokeswoman for Suze Orman says NerdWallet has it wrong. Jill Zuckman says the monthly fees for the year don't add up to $39, but $36 because the first month's fee is waived. She also adds: "Also,it's fine to mention the MoneyGram cash loads, but you have no mention of the fact that there are no fees for people who do a minimum direct deposit of $20 a month and stay within the Allpoint Network. " This is a good time to remind readers to look closely at the fees.     One of the big complaints about prepaid cards is all the fees, some not so transparent.

MEASURING THE differences between men and women is, at best, an inexact science. Some make interplanetary comparisons. But Mars (men) and Venus (women) are only 100 million miles apart - give or take a cold shoulder - and that's far too short a distance. Better to explore that quintessentially American social laboratory known as ... the parking lot. As any good automaker knows - and probably General Motors, too - car tastes vary. But that's putting it kindly. A recent survey performed for NOP World, an international marketing research firm, shows just how different they are. The highest-rated car among men?

A challenge to the ex-smoker in chief Dear Mr. President, I feel your pain. It is no fun being judged by others for a personal habit, regardless of whether it's bad for your health or not. I cringed the other week when, under the guise of wondering whether your new anti-smoking law will be effective, McClatchy reporter Margaret Talev rattled off a series of nosy questions about your own smoking habits during your first afternoon news conference....

DO IT NOW: Here is practical advice from a new book, "Nine Steps to Financial Freedom," by Suze Orman. "If you're covered at work by a 401(k) or 403(b), get to your human resources offices right away and 'up' your contribution to the maximum.If you haven't signed up for your retirement plan, do it now. This is a gift from Uncle Sam."SOUND ADVICE: An investment adviser sends this strategy for 401(k) and 403(b) plans:"If you think the market will be volatile short-term, but OK long-term, move stock funds into money funds, then 'dollar-cost average' by putting 5 to 10 percent a month back into stocks.
