One Product – Five Prices

B000FIMG68.01.LZZZZZZZ There it is, the Lost Season 2 DVD. I already have the first season and watching it on the big screen is definitely nicer than being crouched over the laptop, but yesterday I went to 8  different  merchants stores and websites to sought out the best deals.  But three of the merchants didn’t even carry the Season 2 DVD.

The merchants I visited:
– Vintage Stock ( local used video/dvd/cd store)
– Borders
-Barnes & Noble
– Walmart
– Target
– Best Buy
– Deep Discount.com
– Amazon.com

So if the store even had the product to begin with, who had the best deal?

The Best Possible Banking Account For You

When I was about eight years old, I had a savings account with my first bank.
So one day, me and my mom went there to deposit a nice full jar of coins (mostly pennies).

The teller though instead of smiling back and congratulating me on being a fantastic saver, motioned to the sign next to her. And there it was: the various charges and fees for depositing change at the bank. After that, I moved my money to a bank that didn’t charge me a dime for every two dollars of change I deposited.  Since then I never wanted an account that charged me for anything.

How I saved 100* bucks using Chegg.com

First there’s tuition but then another way money is sapped from your poor little hands is paying for books. Now this summer, I went to some classes over at a community college. Me trying to be prepared and all, I buy the used books online for my classes at really cheap prices. The mistake? I should have waited until AFTER I went to class to know if I really even still needed the book. For example, in Public Speaking by the first five minutes she told us that we really didn’t need to buy the book and that the edition that is assigned to this class would later be replaced making it worthless to sell online. As she said this I sighed at my now worthless textbook staring back at me. ( Even worse we probably only cracked open the book seven times)

I don’t know how or why I came across swoopo but it did look intriguing.  But after I tried it. I concluded this: AVOID AVOID AVOID.


Okay maybe I’m being a lil bit dramatic but it’s basically eBay but you have to pay for your bids PLUS the amount you win it at ( BIG if you even win) PLUS the shipping which is quite expensive! Now swoopo did make some changes from the first time I went there and the second .
