Parents opened card... - Joshjrn
Like many people, my parents added me to a credit card when I was relatively young to start building my credit. Also like many people, my parents proceeded to nearly max it out over the years. So, I'm in a bit of a quandary. On the one hand, it is increasing my credit age. On the other, it is throwi...

Ultimate Rewards Point Transfers - Joshjrn
I'm starting to delve into the world of Chase Sapphire Preferred UR point usage. In my research, I'm seeing quite a bit of ink being spilled over transferring points to partner airlines instead of booking directly through UR.

Honda Vehicle Exchange Program - Joshjrn
I recently had some recall work done at Team, which apparently put me on their radar. Today, I received a personalized mailout saying that, "due to a shortage of reliable pre-owned blah blah blah" my car is eligible for this program. They are offering 110% of NADA book value on my car, .9% APR, etc....

Maximizing Chase Freedom Quarterly Bonus Fall 2013? - Joshjrn
As I don't purchase nearly enough gas to max out the $1,500 quarterly bonus, I started doing research into how to maximize it in other ways. The most common seems to be buying gift cards at gas stations. However, that seems to be easier said than done. To pull it off, you need to meet three requirem...

Louisiana Primary Still Closed? - Joshjrn
I remember during the last presidential cycle several posters mentioning that Louisiana was planning on moving away from a closed primary system to an open, or at least semi-closed, system. Was that just smoke, did it die somewhere along the way, or is it still in the process of happening? I haven't...

Girlfriend and I were trying to brainstorm a list of places to check out good live music, so I figured I would enlist the FDB for help. Could be a restaurant, bar, or some combination thereof.

I typically drink Pierre Ferrand Reserve when I'm enjoying cognac neat, but I've recently begun enjoying a cognac grandfather (or variant of the French Connection, depending who you ask.

American Funds - Retirement Advice - Joshjrn
I'm being offered a menu of American Funds from my employer for my retirement matching. I have a decent amount of experience (for a layman) in stocks and mutual funds for short to medium term investing, but I feel like I'm wading into uncharted water with this. I'm in my mid 20's, short term bear, m...
