Visa U.S.A. has produced a magazine aimed at teaching consumers the basics about credit cards.
Gerri Detweiler, who has written two books about responsible money management tips, and Terry Savage, a syndicated columnist, were among those who wrote articles for the publication, Knowledge Pays.
Visa executives contributed, as did Durant Abernethy, president and chief executive officer of the National Foundation for Consumer Credit.
Knowledge Pays is being distributed through consumer groups and in bank branches starting this week, which is National Consumer Protection Week.
Visa spokesman Michael McGarry said no decision has been reached on whether there will be more issues.
