Cash or credit? Learn to choose the right one for the situation.

You’ll learn about the power and pitfalls of credit, which is essentially using someone else’s money temporarily (for a price). Biz Kid$ "Cash and Credit" airs Friday, August 6 at 5:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011). Meet a young entrepreneur who used credit to start a successful bath salts business and another who launched a successful design firm. And, as a cautionary tale, we talk to a young woman who had fun buying with credit until she found herself in bankruptcy.

BIZ KID$ is the fun, new, fast-paced TV series where kids teach kids about money and entrepreneurship. Created for school-aged children, each half-hour episode features several young business owners and philanthropists who share their success stories. Whether it's a skateboard designer, a candy store owner, or a hip-hop music producer, the kids on the series inspire young viewers. Throughout the series, kids learn about saving, budgeting, investing and giving back to the community. Spoofs of old TV shows and comedy sketches performed by a humorous cast of characters make the series a hit with both kids and parents alike. The King of Ka-Ching, a cheesy lounge singer, and Francine Fairtrade, a world traveler with extensive knowledge of all things exotic and financial, are two of the characters who add to the fun.
