re: Wireless Headphones - RickAstley on 12/10/19 at 8:10 pm
I'm currently experimenting with a pair of Samsung galaxy buds. Audio quality and the comfort of the earbuds is good. However, the bluetooth connectivity is spotty and the mic quality is poor. If the mic quality was better, I'd be pretty sold on the wireless earbuds. At work, I use a pair of wire...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 401k/Roth IRA question - RickAstley on 12/9/19 at 7:01 pm
You shouldn't get rid of your IRA just because you don't 'need' two accounts. At worse, stop contributing and let it grow overtime. At best, you contribute to both accounts, and you build up savings outside of the accounts. Roth IRAs are nice because you can treat the contributions as an emergen...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Smart Light questions - RickAstley on 12/4/19 at 6:44 am
There are a ton of benefits to Alexa. I don't disagree with including an echo in the discussion for a hub. One other alternative for internet enabled devices, IFTTT is a good way to build logic into your day-to-day. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Smart Light questions - RickAstley on 12/3/19 at 7:12 pm
If you're looking into purchasing a hub, Samsung Samrtthings is a good option. I started with a Wink Hub, then a Wink Hub 2, and swapped over to Smarthings 2. We just got all our indoor and outdoor Christmas lighting setup last weekend. All the lights come on and off throughout the day depending on ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Cyber Monday Deals: Philips Hue? - RickAstley on 12/2/19 at 10:22 pm
I bought 10 boxes of hue white ambiance bulbs on clearance at Home Depot recently. $38.03 per box plus $3.80 in tax. I've got 4 that I have either gifted or sold. I'm willing to sell a few of the remaining 6 for what I paid ($41.83) plus shipping if interested. I've done some trading in the past wit...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Best online savings account? - RickAstley on 9/4/19 at 9:07 pm
I signed up for Discover last year. It was a combination of need (previous savings account had a 0.01% rate), and they had a $100 sign up bonus. It was convenient since I already had a CC with them. Overall, my savings account experience with Discover has been positive. I'm not attached to them by a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Google Play Unsafe App Alert - RickAstley on 9/4/19 at 9:03 pm
I received an alert today that was new to me. Google Play reported that CamScanner was an unsafe app for advertising purposes and to uninstall it. This evening my phone went off with a reminder for an appointment titled 'Free Netflix for a Year' with a link to a survey site. I checked the appointmen...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: What is your mortgage rate?? - RickAstley on 8/25/19 at 6:00 pm
Our current rate is 4.25%. We are a little over a year into the loan. I'd love to get the rate below 3.6%. I don't know anything about refinancing, and I'm cautious to jump the gun too soon if the rate will dip a little further....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - RickAstley on 8/25/19 at 5:58 pm
I've got a few CC questions for the board (attempting this without starting a brand new thread and not reading this entire thread). 1. What are the most recommended credit cards for Hilton and Delta rewards? 2. What cards should I consider maximizing rewards for a vacation that will likely cost...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Kauai Must Do's - RickAstley on 8/25/19 at 5:49 pm
Looks like a good list. My wife and I went about 5 years ago and had a great time there. Be sure to ask concierge for deals. We got half off rates with the sunset cruise and a helicopter tour through the resort we stayed at (Hanalei Bay Resort). We stayed the entire trip on the north side of the isl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Europe Trip Planning - RickAstley on 8/19/19 at 8:49 pm
Thanks to everyone who has responded. The advice has been great and I am taking it all in consideration. A few more follow up questions: 1) When preparing for the trip, what do we need to make sure that we have done before leaving the U.S.? - I've got so far to get a plug adapter, passport, tra...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

re: Napa winery trip report - RickAstley on 7/31/19 at 6:26 pm
Thank you for your post. My wife and I are going to Napa Valley for 2.5 days. We've never been to the area and certainly want to have a good experience in our short amount of time. We want to do some wine tastings, but we also are considering some touristy items as well. Did you try anything such as...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Is it recommended to store them: 1) Completely drained 2) Minimally charged 3) Fully charged 4) Doe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Ant & Wasp Problems in and around home - RickAstley on 4/9/19 at 9:02 pm
We've had a ton of rain recently, and I've noticed a number of sugar ant colonies outside of the house moving in vertical columns along exterior walls and around the base of the porch. Today, I've found two places inside the house where sugar ants are wondering around (kitchen and bathroom). I place...

re: Financial Life Skills - Developing a class - RickAstley on 3/23/19 at 9:11 pm
I think you have a great list of topics to cover. My suggestion is to gear specific classes towards different age groups. There's a great need of financial advice for high school and college age individuals, but there's just as many in the work force and in retirement that could use financial advice...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
