Thrifty Scot Loans, Thrifty Mortgages and today; Thrifty Scot review, will thing ever ends? At first, I was a bit reluctant to write three reviews for the same guy. However, as you can see in my previous two reviews, the first two sites are fairly different even thought they are talking about roughly the same topics. Once I went to the three websites, I acknowledge that there was an added value for my readers to get to know about the three of them. Therefore, here I go with my third (and last 😉 ) review of the Thrifty Scot family !

What is Thrifty Scot?

Funny enough, I would say that it is the merged and improved version of the last two websites. Then again, we find valuable information regarding loans, mortgages, refinance and credit in general. Thrifty Scot is concentrating on the US market as its two “brother sites” were looking at what is going on in England.

This site seems to have been tuned up several times as the layout is very professional and it provides us with a nice web environment. The information is easy to find and the “search box” at the top of the site makes any research experiences smooth and fast.

What makes you want to visit this site?

Then again, Thrifty Scot offers a wide range of credit related topics and news. In addition to posting the most relevant news regarding each category, they also offer some key definition of financial term.

Another great point is the small articles on managing your personal finance. Each articles, definition and news are classified by categories and by dates. Besides a Google Ad space, there is no other advertising used on the page. Therefore, you do not have the impression of navigating on a Nascar car when you are on this site!

Are the resources really helpful?

As it was the case with the two other sites, they present some good basic knowledge in term of personal finance. As they are picking up the interesting news regarding mortgages, you don’t really have to read a whole newspaper to find what you are looking for.

Can improvements be done?

Despite the fact that the site is well built and provides us with relevant information, I would still suggest some minor modifications. The first one would be to go into more depth in term of financial term definition. While I enjoy reading small articles, it could sometimes go deeper in the subject. Maybe the site was designed that way so the author can add updates later on and create additional content that way?

Money wise, I think Thrifty Scot could use some affiliate program as they did with another of their website. Since there are almost no ads on their pages, a few affiliate programs won’t make a big difference in the Internet user’s experience.

So this ends my reviews for the Thrifty Scot group. Next week, I’ll be reviewing a book that I had a lot of fun to read. If you want to have your site reviewed, please contact me at thefinancialblogger(at)gmail(dot)com.
