I played on the AT&T site as a new customer and through my account. This is home it seems to me. Someone stated before that they are shifting away from the subsidized phone model. That means phones will start costing ~$600 each. That's a lot of money to fork out for something that may last only two ...

What will you do when you need a new phone? You will either have to pay extra $25 per month or pay full price (non subsidized price like what is currently done) for the phone.
I wouldn't have a problem paying full price for a phone if they built them to last longer. I have an S3 that I got in Sep...

PMI will drop off on a conventional loan when you get to 78% of the original loan amount or you get it reappraised after 2 yrs into the loan and it falls below 80%. This is how it is on my conventional loan....

I'm taking the job but it is about 15% pay cut. Quality of life should be better provided money didn't get too tight. Right now we have so many fixed costs such as mortgage, daycare, student loans. We are trying hard to pay down student loans. We only have one car note and don't eat out much. With...

Currently I'm an hourly employee and am taking an internal position moving to salary. The problem is that I will be taking a significant pay cut due to the overtime that I get now. Here are some numbers (not actual unless noted) that describe my situation.
Now: $50k, with OT: $65.5k

Sallie Mae sent me a message saying they are lowering my interest rate by 1% because I've paid on time for 3 yrs now. That's great, but it was the lower of my two loans and only moved the interest rate from 2.625% to 1.625%. I planned to pay it out for the full term regardless. I tried to get MOHELA...

So you want to get a better rate on something with no collateral? Ask a family member to loan you the money at 3% over 3-4 years. It is better than current rates they get on cash and saves you money. That's all I got. ...
