For example, I would never have known that Canadians were eligible for a TD Bank NA Visa without RedFlagDeals and would have continued to use my TD Canada Trust US dollar Visa which offers no points and very limited benefits.
In terms of personal finance, I studied this part-time at the same time as I was going to university thinking that I might become a financial planner/advisor but in the end, for personal reasons, my career choice dealt with my university studies (computers) for a career in IT. However, I still like to keep myself informed about the changes in personal finance (since when I took my personal finance/investing course(s), there was no such thing as TFSA).
I think personal finance should be mandatory in education
