NURU Personal Finance Cards

With Financial Literacy month coming to a close, I thought it would be a great time to share with readers a nifty little personal finance education product by Nuru. These personal finance cards simulate a portable finance book broken down into various categories, such as:

  • Investing
  • Budgeting
  • Loans
  • Insurance
  • Retirement

I think this is a great product, particularly for someone in need of an introductory lesson on a broad range of financial concepts.  If you just read and absorbed one single concept a day for one month you’d be exposed to 30 different personal finance terms and products.


When I was in my early 20’s I knew very little about personal finance concepts, such as mutual fund investing, bonds, etc.  I spent a lot of time pouring over personal finance books trying to get a basic grounding in these concepts.

Too bad Nuru’s personal finance cards weren’t around back then!  I could have tossed them in my book bag and reviewed them during breaks in between classes.  The cards even come with a key ring, and the cards are punched so they can be loaded and transported together on the ring.

At $10 per deck, they are not necessarily cheap.  However, try buying a personal finance book (or books) that covers the range of subjects these compact decks cover for less.  They make a great gift for yourself, someone else, and as a bonus for fellow bloggers, these make an excellent reference when drafting posts on a particular subject.


  1. I won these cards in a contest, and they are pretty awesome. I like to carry them around in case someone asks me a financial question, which happens occasionally since I’m the resident financial guru.

  2. I love these cards. They are written in language that is easy to understand AND easy to remember.

  3. What a cool idea! and I like Joe Morgan’s idea to use them as stocking stuffers! It is never to early to plan for Christmas!
