| Money Talk|| re: New Job: Transfer old 401k to new or Rollover to IRA - LSUtigerME on 7/24/14 at 10:23 pm|
Holy shite... I was about to post this exact question.
Is leaving it an option? My current 401k has incredibly low fees (like <.02%) and decent fund performance, so leaving is my likely option vs IRA.
What are your new fund options? Are there low fees? Can you take loans against the rollover b...

Have you driven the IS?
The FSport doesn't even have memory seating. Also no cooled seats. The 8sp trans felt a bit clunky, and the throttle was very overbearing. Always wanting to go into Economy mode.
I haven't driven the 335 or S4. But so far the Q50 or IS350fsport have not impressed me. An...

I've been looking at them for a bit lately.
Haven't read issues of the odors.
Slow startup seems to be a sporadic complaint. Guys I know with them says it's not obnoxiously long. Most smart systems these days take a bit to startup. Seems to have gotten better with newest builds.

| Money Talk|| re: Pay off my student loans early? - LSUtigerME on 7/21/14 at 11:12 am|
Student loan debt is very forgiving and flexible. It's also tax deductible.
I see no reason to dump the savings into them. You can always make a larger payment to pay them off quicker, but I wouldn't dump a savings fund into them. Double your payment and turn 10 years into 4....

I think it'd be easier to restrict and control the excel form, or manually input the form in Acrobat....

Check Money Talk board. This has been discussed a bit (in sticky as well).
You need to do a lot more research on leasing. It can make sense, but is not the most financially responsible. However, neither is buying a brand new car.
You negotiate all the same. Leasing is just a way of financing. ...

Don't be late/miss a payment.
Work with your creditors to get a payment plan or other ways to work out the debt. School loans are usually very flexible with this. Medical bills can often also be worked out on a payment plan.
What has actually made the score tank? Did you miss a payment or som...
