MOB #76 – GM Buyouts, Monthly Savings Tips & Feedback

February 9th, 2009 · podcasts

On this episode of Millionaire or Bust, Talli is out sick, but I’m still standing, so I bring you the news, some listener generated content and then some tips on how to save money on your monthly expenses to help get you through this economic downturn.

For the first story, I talk about Denny’s free breakfast grand slam.

Then I talked about the buyout offers GM extended to all its hourly workers.

In my penultimate story, I talked about the job losses in January which were the worst in 34 years.

Finally, I covered the closing of 3 more U.S. banks. Two were in California and one was in Georgia.

Next, we had a comment that was sent in by Erk the train driving podcaster from Australia whose various podcasts you can find at channelerk.com. Erk was talking about the travel shows that we did recently and mentioned the following websites:

In response to Erk’s admonition to be careful when surfing the internet outside your home network where your passwords and credit card information could be compromised, I suggested a VPN such as hotspotvpn.com to encrypt your data and keep you safe.

For the last segment of the show, I covered price comparison sites that were specifically geared towards recurring monthly costs, so that we can all save some money without compromising our lifestyles:

    That blillshrink site could come in handy for my cell phone bill. Been considering finding something new once my contract expires later this year.

    Good show. It was also dfifferent hearing from Erk and his information. I liked to have the websites with information on checking the credit reports annually. Thanks

    @shawno I wish I could give that site a try myself. Unfortunately, that iPhone has me locked into AT&T for awhile. Of course, all the companies seem to have similar prices for the type of plan I have anyway.
