Top Personal Finance Posts Of The Week – Dubstep Cat Edition

Posted February 25th, 2012 in Blog Carnival by Jeremy Waller


Err what? I don’t even know what to say to that.

Top Posts of the Week

Dr. Dean – The Millionaire Nurse posted Giving Credit Card Info To Social Media? Come on! – “Around the corner is a marketing explosion that will allow us to shop while visiting our favorite social media site. It’s going to happen. Is it a good idea?”

Cult Of Money posted President’s Day – What You Can Do With Each Dead Guy In Your Wallet – “Honor the Presidents of the past with ideas on how you can use each denomination for furthering your goals and save for retirement regardless of your income.”

Start Talking Cents posted Relocating? Here’s How To Reduce Moving Costs posted at Start Talking Cents.

Dividend Growth Investor posted Does Entry Price Matter to Dividend Investors? – “The reason for the lost decade in stocks is that many otherwise quality companies were overvalued in the early 2000s. For example Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) was trading at 29.30 times earnings in early 2000, whereas McDonald’s (MCD) traded at 26.90 times earnings. Even some of the best dividend stocks are not worth paying more than 20 times forward earnings.”

Money Counselor posted Send a Cease & Desist Letter? – “You have the right to force that nasty debt collector to stop contacting you. But doing so might have even nastier consequences.”

My Wealth Builder posted Extended Low Interest Rates – Another Bubble or Deflation? – “So how will low interest rates affect the economy? There are two possible scenarios based on recent history.”

Nerd Wallet posted NerdWallet Launches Prepaid Debit Card Comparison Tool – “We’re expanding our award-winning technology to include an interactive prepaid debit comparison tool, which gives consumers a tailored, at-a-glance understanding of each card’s cost.”

The Top Personal Finance Post of The Week

And my pick of the week is……

Jen’s post at Master the Art of SavingHappy, Happy, Joy, Joy! My Credit Score Went up 65 Points

Jen turned me on to a cool website that lets you track your credit report activity for free. They also give you your approximate credit score using an algorithm similar to the three major credit bureaus. I won’t tell you the name of the site though. You’ll have to go to Jen’s post and see for yourself!

    Thanks a bunch for the mention! But that poor cat. Who who stick things on a cat just to make a hilarious video? it’s like people who dress up their dogs.
