[quote] And to clarify, Cox is my only option for internet with a decent speed.[/quote] Are you in New Orleans? I had a Cox technician out yesterday due to poor internet service.

[quote]I decided to get the Panoramic WIFI and now i'm consistently between 175-195 Mbps. [/quote] Are you renting their router? I hated paying the $10/mo and ended up buying a nice router. Picked up the Arris Surfboard 1900 and haven't noticed any reduction in speed. It pays for itself in just ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Mint Sync Error with Hancock Whitney - Oenophile Brah on 11/1/17 at 9:56 am
I'm guessing you may need to change the sourcing for the whitney link-up. I'm able to access my account (originally Whitney) but I have to click on the Hancock portion now. I use the same info, but link through the "Hancock Personal Account" section. Not sure that is your issue, but that is what ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Proposed 401k limit -- $2400 per year - Oenophile Brah on 10/22/17 at 11:13 am
[quote]You honestly believe “$225k isn’t a ton to live off”?[/quote] You don't have $225k to live off of. It's $225k - $75k=$150k. This is working off the 33% new proposed rates. $150k/yr for a married couple with $250k+ student debt, a conservative $300k mortgage or (high rent payment in ex...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Proposed 401k limit -- $2400 per year - Oenophile Brah on 10/21/17 at 2:45 pm
[quote]That’s $225k AGI. So you’re nearing $275-290k+ depending on your pretax and deductions. [/quote] $225k after deductions isn't a ton to live off of when you have serious student debt. Heaven forbid you have children or live in an high cost of living city. Top rate should start around 30...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: I come to the Money Talk for advice - Home equity Loan/HELOC/Other Options - Oenophile Brah on 10/18/17 at 7:31 pm
I think you’re worrying too much. 40k for 800 sq ft is high. I’m assuming you’re a fairly high earner. You should be able to float with the HELOC for a few years. If rates bump quick, you can pay it down faster. It’s only 40k. You sound like you really want the addition and only hope to finan...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How Do I Save? - Oenophile Brah on 10/18/17 at 7:23 pm
I would hate to miss any portion of my companies match, so try to avoid that situation. You’re in a similar situation I was in years ago. I would consider 2 options. 1 multi family house. You live in one portion and rent out the other(s). This is what I did. It’s my first rec, but you ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: What's your employer contribution to your 401K? - Oenophile Brah on 9/22/17 at 9:09 am
[quote]I put in 4%, they put in 2%, not great but it's something.[/quote] This is our plan match as well. Our fund options are pretty pitiful to boot. We have over 50 fund choices and all but 2 have expense ratios over .50%. Many have load fees. It's really a shame how poorly some of these 401k...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
