8:41 am
class." she's here to talk about a brand new initiative but first juju chang took a trip to the mall with suze to find out what people really spend. >> reporter: here at the mall in new jersey, suze orman is helping shoppers get over their holiday hangovers. >> are you going to put it on a credit card? >> dno, paying cash. >> my girl. >> reporter: orman is famous for her ability to find secrets hidden in people's wallets. >> oh, my goodness. appreciate's on. >> wedding -- >> have you paid with credit or debit? >> cash. >> do you love me? >> always. >> there you go. >> reporter: but now suze's turning her fire power to a different kind of card. warning against the pitfalls of debit cards, especially pre-paid debit cards. >> the fact that you pay with
8:42 am
credit cards you don't have a fica score. don't you think it's about time that those of us who pay cash can get credit for that? >> reporter: now in a supreme example of if you can't beat them, join them, suze orman is hosting her own credit card. >> my job is to educate people on what they're spending and how much money they have left. >> reporter: suze knows this debit card is putting her reputation on the line which is something she knew money can't buy. juju chang, new jersey. >> juju said it at the end of the piece. you are putting your reputation on the line. tell us about this. >> well, the reason i think people think i'm putting my reputation on the line is now i have a financial product. how can suze orman endorse a financial product. i paid for this whole thing obviously but i built this card from the bottom up. i just didn't find another card
8:43 am
that i put my name on. i wanted to bring to america a place that they could feel proud to put their name to. an alternative to a bank where people knew i was going to put their needs first. >> how are you going to do that? how do you put people's needs first and make sure this is not about profits? >> so, first of all, let's talk about profits. let's go there for a second. do i hope i make money on this card? oh, you betcha i do. because if i make money on this card. then the $3 a month it's going to cost you to have this card, i get to take that away. i want a card that is better than cash. this card will work like any debit card works where you have money. you use it, it's taken from your account. but with this card, every time you swipe it, you immediately get a text that says, george, you just spent $50. you have $100 left. >> that's the difference? >> every morning you wake up, the difference is, this card is
8:44 am
transparent. it will not you more than $3. >> no matter what? >> no matter what. >> you're saying you're pledging not to increase the fees. >> the whole goal was not to make money but i'm sure people will say, well, how much money does suze orman really need. the goal of the card is to give people an alternative to banking sources out there and other pre-paid cards that are charging exorbitant rates in my opinion. the fact of the matter is if i have to raise fees to make this work, i'd rather close it down. i'm not going to do it. that's not the goal of this card. the goal of this card is to give people an alternative to banking. >> how do they get at this credit score problem? >> this will be the first debit card in history that is going to share information with transunion, one of the three credit reporting agencies out there transunion is going to be looking at the information. you have to opt in if you want
8:45 am
to participate in this. all the information will be anonymous. it will all be aggregated. they're going to look at this and say, hmm, can a debit card generate a fica score? we're punishing people who pay in cash and award the people who pay the minimum on their credit card. >> talk about the top three this year. >> if you're in debt, first you have to recognize the fact that you're in debt, george. you can't seep saying, oh, it's all right. then you have to face it to erase it. you need to tell everybody you know, i'm in credit card debt. stop asking me to go out to eat and do all of these things. the third thing you have to do is financial move your credit carts from high interest rates to low. you pay as much as you can. >> three good tips. you have the show on tonight.

say it is not so. this week marks the end of an era for daytime television. the soap opera "one life to live" is ending its historic run on friday. for more than 40 years it served up a daily mix of dramatic thoughts and often groundbreaking division. "all my children's" cam mathison, you're here. this is hard for so many people.
8:49 am
>> it really is. considering "one life to live" made its debut in 1968 about two years before my former soap opera on "all my children." and the next 43 years the cast filmed the equivalent of three feature films a week, won over 50 emmy awards and boldly tackled some of the most controversial issues of the day. over 11,000 episodes. >> "one life to live" an extremely courageous industry. >> 43 years of fabulous story. >> reporter: ever since it hit the airwaves 43 years ago, "one life to live" has been at the forefront of cutting edge story telling. >> i'm billy douglas and i'm gay. >> shane, are you being bullied? >> i've been diagnosed with breast cancer. >> we had the opportunity to instruct and say go get a

"one life to live" has been on the edge of the entertainment scene as well. ♪ let's not forget about those award-winning cast musicals. ♪ >> reporter: of course, what's a
8:51 am
soap without the occasional -- oh, let's just call them -- mishaps. >> ah! >> i've been buried alive. i've been married six times. i burned down a boat. i burned down a house. i sort of killed my mother's brother and now a colombian drug lord. >> burke, riley, buchanan, buchanan, carpenter, davidson, banks. >> reporter: at the heart of the show is victoria lord played with erika slezax. she recalls one story line in particular. >> viki has d.i.d., dissociative
8:52 am
identity disorder. she was abused by her father as a child and she slipped. >> reporter: and as it prepares to say good-bye, we say thank you for 43 years. >> i doubt whatever is airing from now 40 years from now will still be airing. it's been fun. >> everything turns out to be something special. >> i don't know how it got to be 40 years. >> there had been some talk about the show being moved online, but sadly, those talks fell through. so fan will just have to tune in friday for one last look at "one life to live." >> can't help but get misty-eyed. well, i have so much respect for open actors, and they are going to be missed dearly, all the soaps. >> i completely agree. there's still a few out there but they're dwindling, it's true.
