re: How does the MB feel about financing furniture at 0% - LSUGUMBO
6 year financing available on furniture??? That's absolutely insane, but I would definitely take advantage. To me, there's nothing wrong with making payments when there's no interest. I'd stick with the plan to pay it off in 2 years or less....

re: Laptop recommendations-- any suggestions appreciated - LSUGUMBO
I'm on my third Toshiba and I have been impressed by all of them. I'd probably still have my second one if it didn't meet an untimely demise by my then 3 year old son. He saw a cord hanging off the table, and like most kids would have done- he pulled it. Laptop was not happy. But I've liked all o...

re: Another Credit Card? - LSUGUMBO
If I were you, I'd try and get a card that has bonus Cash Back or miles attached to spending X amount in the first so many months. Chase Ink has $300 Cash back if you spend $3,000 in 3 months, and it has no interest for 12 months. The Ink Plus is $600 Cash Back if you spend $5,000 in 3 months, b...

re: Lnglf.....who has been stocking up? - LSUGUMBO
I'm averaged at $1.72- There's a part of me that wants to buy more, but I'm a little leary. Would you wait and see if it dips again, or just buy at around $3 and take your chances?...

re: Official Penny / MJ Stock Thread - LSUGUMBO
That's kind of where I am as well- I'm going to wait until they get fully operational and pumping this summer before I look at getting out. I've only got a small position (166 shares), so the money's not too large for me, but this was never a long term hold in my portfolio. I'm already too O&G heav...

Do you participate in Annual Meetings? - LSUGUMBO
I have a handful of shares of various companies, and have lately gotten several Notices of Annual Meeting. I generally don't participate because it seems like they're usually electing/re-electing board members that I know nothing about, so I just abstain in any votes. Should I be more active in th...

re: Should I be "concerned" about my Roth IRA? - update page 2 - LSUGUMBO
How much money are we talking about? What percentage of your contribution is wiped out by the $40 annual fee? I agree with the people that are saying drop EJ. I learned about several different funds on this board and by doing my own research- it doesn't take a lot of knowledge to pick a couple of...

re: Moving in the next five years: Pay extra on house or invest? - LSUGUMBO
I'm in the same situation as you are, but less money- I'm paying roughly $350 extra on a $1400 mortgage to pay it down as much as possible- we're planning a move in the next 2-3 years, so it's an extra $21,000 over 5 years + interest saved (not much at 2.875%) I'm sure we could have made more money ...

re: Company Car vs Allowance - LSUGUMBO
If you're going to be trading in every 3-4 years, you might as well lease. You won't 'own' any car for long enough to get your money's worth, so unless you want to buy a car that your kids/wife will drive in 4 years, the take the cheaper note and lease. Some lease deals even cover oil changes, etc. ...
