As the national political conventions get underway, you’re going to be hearing a lot about agreements, compromises, and finding common ground.

So, for next week, we want to hear from you about a time when you had to make an agreement or a compromise that affected your finances.

Were you able to make a joint decision? Who got what they wanted? Was everyone happy? 

Tell us about it! Give us a call at 1-800-648-5114, send us a message on Facebook, or tweet us, we’re @MarketplaceWKND
