This week we talk about the Apple WWDC and buying gadgets. We specifically discuss ways to avoid constant tech gadget upgrading and the advantages of doing that, but the same advice could apply to almost any type of nonessential purchase.
We take a look at a story from money.cnn.com on how to Never pay retail again. We discuss the writer’s use of coupons for both online and offline purchases and using the price matching and price beating guarantees that stores offer. We mention ways to check on price drops after purchase so that you can get the difference refunded like PriceProtectr.com. Then we look at haggling and how it can save you money in places other than flea markets, garage sales and car lots.
Last we tackle some meaty topics in two pieces of feedback we received from our listeners. The first is from Marci, asking about investing, IRAs & financial advisors. The second is from Justin, calling me out on not mentioning that Paul Navone, the $11/hr millionaire mentioned in MOB #26, made the majority of his money on rental income.
