wife and I use Page Plus Cellular. It uses Verizon's network, so no complaints on service. A friend of mine turned me on to it and we were all too happy to ditch Verizon Wireless and our combined $135 bill.
We are happy with the $30/month plan (500 MB, 1200 talk, 3000 text) because we don't str...

Tax advantage of deductible interest is better than the Roth deal.
Once you get the house, focus on saving in your Roth instead of prepayino your mortgage. [/quote]

I can only speak for the Signature card. What I'd say about it is if you put all of your expenses on it AND you redeem only for travel related purchases, it's a great card and well worth the annual fee. Essentially, it's 2% "cash back" on all purchases to be used towards travel. We've done well wi...

I understand how difficult it is to deal with a stubborn parent. It's a shame too - with a reasonable level of spending, $700k plus SS should be plenty
Perhaps you could put a report together that shows the numbers/reasoning behind your concern. There's a difference between telling somebody "yo...

| Money Talk|| re: Pay extra monthly on Mortgage or invest the extra? - Feed Me Popeyes on 7/21/14 at 1:24 pm|
Since mortgage interest is tax deductible, you're only "buying" a ~3% after-tax "return" by paying the mortgage early
It's only logical to pay extra on a mortgage when you are trying to refinance out of unfavorable terms (e.g. PMI on FHA loans), you have a terrible interest rate, or you are makin...
