Things I Learned Today

  1. I agree to this article on Free Money Finance, espcially the comment that the statement rich get richer, the poor get poorer is wrong. If you are discplined and determined anyone can get rich. Ofcourse its very easy to sit and complain about the rich.

  2. Save on rental cars says pluggedinfinance. The strategy is using establish the highest rate you are willing to pay and entering a price about 10 and 20% below the sidestep rate in priceline and bank the savings!. As noted in the comments u may have to repeat the cycle couple of times. Thanks pluggedinfinance for the comments.

  3. An easy tool for figuring out the allocation. its very basic. one of these days i need to sit and find out the best tool for allocations

Just wanted to clarify the sidestep strategy:

Find the best rental car rate on sidestep. Then go over to priceline and enter a bid between 10-20% below the sidestep price. You might have to try this a few times with between 1 and 3 different car classes.

Generally, you'll bank savings equal to 10-20% below your best rate found at sidestep.
