FiLife Gives Users Private Answers to Financial Questions

Jan 21, 2010, 10:00 ET from

NEW YORK, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- (, the leading personal finance question and answer site, introduced a fee-based "private question" feature that allows users to get confidential and direct answers to their specific financial questions.

The introductory price for asking a private question will be $10.00.

The answers are supplied by FiLife's community of experts, including financial professionals (Certified Financial Planners(TM)), experts, writers and members with real world experience in overcoming personal finance challenges. Questions range from "How can I improve my credit report?" to "Why are people comparing the current U.S. recession to the Great Depression?" FiLife is the #3 personal finance site, with over 4 million monthly unique visitors.*

"The number of people asking questions for free to the open community continues to grow. However, there are those who want to divulge specific financial information and are uncomfortable doing so publicly," said Ezra Kucharz, President of FiLife. "This new feature gives them the opportunity to ask confidential questions directly to an expert."  

FiLife's open API allows third-party publishers to offer their users access to FiLife's question and answer experience. FiLife will provide certain publishers with a share of the revenue generated by the private question micro-transactions.
