each candidate made their case to the party faithful. clinton spoke after 10:00 last night and used her stage time to go after republicans. ms. clinton: when republicans debate, they compete to insult each other, demean women, and they double down on trickle down. actually, it is reality tv, with a cast of characters who don't care much about actual reality. alyx: bernie sanders used his speech to draw sharp contrast with clinton on a number of issues. sanders suggested that clinton is revising history to explain why her husband, president clinton, signed an act in the 1990's defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman. mr. sanders: now today, some are trying to rewrite history to say they voted for one anti gay law to stop something worse.

7:01 am
if you are off to the north, you might have to deal with a few clouds. north of highway 20, maybe just a few clouds asked in with the sunshine. monday looks to start sunny and we will bring clouds in by later in the day. eventually we will see a rain chance tuesday night into wednesday. we have a couple of nice days to enjoy before then, 66 degrees our high temperature, a lighter wind than yesterday. 41 degrees tonight with clear skies, another chilly one. by tomorrow afternoon, 64 degrees. tuesday, a cloudy day, we will roll some rain in by later in the day, 64 degrees. we will cool down a little bit more into the mid-50's.

7:19 am
back to normal, the only difference is i have a ring. alyx: one thing we are going to talk about is some of those common financial mistakes that we all make with our money. there is ways that we could be saving but because we are making these mistakes, we are actually losing a lot of money we could have kept. cameron: it is the little things that eventually add up, and the first one is credit card debt. a recent study says the average american household has $16,000 of credit card debt on their cards. that is a lot. imagine the interest these folks are paying. on my website i have put an interest rate calculator. for 10,000 dollars of credit card debt at 15.2% interest, that is $4000 of interest. alyx: energy errors, what do you mean? cameron: here in iowa, it is starting to get a little bit colder so the furnaces are
7:20 am
starting to go up. how do you save money? maybe look at the thermostat you can program so while you are at work, that is where the money is being saved. alyx: they define a constant temperature that could keep it decently warm. what is the third point? cameron: i work with retirees every single day, and it is social security mistakes. it is a huge piece of people's retirement. if you take your benefit from 62 to your full retirement age, you will get a reduction. if you delay from 70, you will get 8% a year in terms of credit. most americans do not know about these claiming strategies where they are going to leave thousands and thousands of dollars of benefits they did not know were available to them. talk to a qualified financial analyst who knows social security.
7:21 am
alyx: another point you have, gift cards. sometimes folks will find that gift card that was hiding. cameron: there is another recent study that was done. since 2005, there is $45 billion of unused gift cards. alyx: that says it all right there. our final point. cameron: atm fees. you mentioned it, we went on our honeymoon and i'm usually a good planner. this time i was not perfect so i had to stop at the atm two. money out. it was outside the network. alyx: you pay the charge from that atm and you are charged from your bank.
