MOB #39 – Property Taxes, Rewards Cards, Energy Efficiency & Vegas

July 23rd, 2008 · podcasts

Gas Price Update: $4.419

We talk about property taxes and the opportunity that homeowners have to get theirs reduced if their house has lost value. Don’t pay any more taxes than you’re obligated to.

We discuss a bit about how rewards credit cards aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. We also talk about things to look for in a rewards card and some things to avoid.

For those that are a little more computer savvy and would like to save a couple dollars by playing, free, legal games on their computer, we give a couple ways to find them.

Second Option: Wikipedia’s List of open source games

Personal Favorite: Battle for Wesnoth – It’s a turn based, fantasy RPG.

David shares a few tips on saving energy and as energy prices go up, more and more money, that he has been implementing around the house.

Since David has been looking into ways to be a little more efficient energy-wise around the house, we discuss an article that he found on green.yahoo.com about “vampire power.”

We discuss an article from the Monterey Herald that says that tourists are spending less time and money in Las Vegas. We discuss how that could be an opportunity for you, if you’re looking to go to Vegas.

If you don’t want to create an account for the Monterey Herald, or any other site that needs a free registration, you can try bugmenot.com. They have existing logins that you can use.

David will be heading to Vegas August 14-16 for the New Media Expo. So, if you’re going and would like to meet up, send us an email.

Finally, we wrap up the show with some feedback from Lee in Connecticut.
