Punk’d: Get your Amazon gift cards – at Best Buy

I haven’t been a serious shopper at Best Buy for a long, long time. The last time I went there to buy something (not including the time I stopped by to pick up a free man-shaped USB hub), George Bush was still president.

Analyzing a Credit Card: A Review of the Citi Forward

The Citi Forward credit card was recommended to me by a friend crowing about its 5% back on bookstores and restaurants. After going through the fine print I can safely say that there’s no 5%, but it’s still a credit card you might want to check out. Updated.

How to REALLY Save Money, a Practical Guide

It’s a tough economy out there. People are spending less because they have less to spend. But you don’t have to cut back to stretch your dollars. You just need to be a smart consumer.
