More Money Wednesday Roundup: Bankers’ Botched Deal & Free College Credits

Personal finance from around the Web:

  • Congress has opened an investigation into rate increases at California for-profit health insurer Anthem Blue Cross. Some of Anthem’s estimated 800,000 customers with individual health insurance policies are being told their premiums will jump a whopping 39% in March. [Los Angeles Times]
  • Adding to the coupon-clipping revival, a website called ShortCuts.com allows consumers to add grocery coupons to credit cards before they go shopping, enabling the discounts to be automatically applied at checkout. [Digerati Life]
  • With tax season just around the corner, start thinking about how to make the most of your property. Unfortunately, donating vacation homes to charity doesn’t give you a tax deduction. Of course, you could do an energy audit to earn a tax credit. [WalletPop | MSN Smart Spending]
  • While college tuition is still on the rise, students can take advantage of something cheaper — a Post Secondary Education Option, which enables high-schoolers to get college credit for little or no money. [The Financial Student]
