re: 0% financing on car--is there a catch? - MamouTiger65
Bought a Toyota for my wife a few months ago. I got a quote online and was told that I could either get rebates or 0% for 60 months. The base price was the same either way. The online quote was also much lower than any price we were able to get in person....

You can enter the inventory number to get the exact car you test drove. Within an hour I got quotes back from both dealerships that were thousands cheap...

re: Buying Land w/ Little or No Down Payment? - MamouTiger65
I recently looked into this for myself. The land I was looking at was considered undeveloped. Most of the banks and credit unions I talked to wanted 20-30% down and would finance the land for 5-10 years with most rates starting around 7%. I went to a community bank in my home town and was able to ge...

re: How to fix the Obamacare website in 5 easy steps: 3 weeks total - MamouTiger65
I don't think the software issues are with shopping cart features of the site, they are mostly caused by integration issues with existing systems. From what I've read the site has to pass your information around to several goverment servers to confirm your identity and eligibility. Then it integrate...

Be sure to manage this closely. I've used it for sites I've run in the past. For a busy site, I could burn through hundreds of dollars a day and it would take days to start seeing sells. You can set spending limits, but from my experience those limits are often exceeded. Whenever you go to add more ...

re: Anyone here go to NOLA Motorsports? - MamouTiger65
It was great and I plan to do it again. There is a co-driver that can throttle down your car, but they let you go full speed as long as you don't get stupid. We were able to get up to 175 in the straight away and over 100 through most of the curves. The co-driver has a computer that tells you exactl...
