The Turnaround Tracker What's this?


The Turnaround Tracker

More than 2.5 million families have changed their lives through FPU since it first launched in 1994. The tracker is a real time calculation of the estimated turnaround that occurs each time another family signs up for FPU.

The average family attending FPU pays off $5,300 and saves $2,700 in the first 90 days.

Over the last 20 years that adds up to over $6.5 Billion in savings and almost $13 Billion in debt paid off.

While you've been reading this, another FPU family just paid off their car loan and saved $1,000. You can do it too!

Cynthia's story

Four sons, in-law apartment, living 30 miles north of Boston,MA and with high housing costs in this area make it difficult to save let alone pay off around $50,000 in debt. This type of pressure cooker was getting to my husband ,Ben and we decided to go to FPU at a Methodist church 20 min. away for the 13 week commitment. Now, 2&1/2 years later we are thrilled to say we payed everything off. Have had money in emergency accounts several times to help with car repairs, long distance funeral, and our pug's surgery. We were also able to repair an area of our home after ice dam damage from 2010-2011 bad New England winter! Now we are working on step 3 and saving up to 3-6 months salary. We celebrated our 20th anniversary in May, with a cruise to Bermuda, which was a very big surprise that came at the tail end of working hard with the budget and my Mom's passing away. The boys ages are 17, 15, 13, and 10 so our grocery bill is the hardest thing to control. We will take a summer vacation to Maine to relax as a family before college rolls around. We are so thankful for FPU! I have passed out many cards with the steps to friends and strangers. I have friends without children that say:"How do you do it?" my response is "God's grace, discipline, and Dave Ramsey!"
