About Us


CreditDonkey is a personal finance website. We publish reviews, deals and tips to help you make better decisions. Here's how we do it.

Our Process

We're made up of experienced editors, writers and analysts. We love what we do and take pride in our work.

On average, a half-dozen team members spend days (sometimes weeks!) researching and editing each piece. We routinely fact-check and improve how-to guides and product reviews for accuracy and depth.

For every article and illustration, we ask: How can we make it better?

If it doesn't clarify the complex, it's back to the drawing board.

We don't stop there. Our team interviews experts with real-world experience in each topic area. We then pass along their insight, advice and opinions onto you. You'll find their answers to readers' most pressing questions in our What Experts Say sections.

It takes a village to create the most helpful and reliable guides on the internet. But why do we put our hearts into it? Take a look at what drives us.

Our Mission

We firmly believe:

  1. You shouldn't need a finance degree to have a healthy financial life.
  2. Information is the best way to level the playing field.
  3. There's always more to learn.

CreditDonkey makes personal finance easy to understand. We connect readers with experts who provide clear and practical tips on managing money.

Our how-to guides and product reviews are in-depth, straightforward and clear - simple enough for a donkey to understand. (Yup, that's how we got our company name.)

Speaking of names, you might think ours is an odd choice.

In popular culture, donkeys are portrayed as slow or unskilled. But they're actually sharp, hard-working and curious creatures. Armed with an excellent memory, donkeys are one of the most resilient animals on earth.

Let's strive to be as tough as donkeys.

Managing your money doesn't have to be intimidating. We all get stumped from time to time. But with a little help and a willingness to problem-solve, anyone can make financial decisions with confidence.

Who We Are

Think of us as jargon translators. Our network of journalists, analysts and researchers report on products, promotions, and money-saving tips.

We cover:

And so much more.

Whether you're just getting started or looking to level up, you're in the right place. By helping you compare your options, you'll be able to make smart choices about where your money goes.

Everyone's on a different financial journey. No matter what yours looks like, we're here to help you live your best life on any budget.
