By: MoneyFacts

Current Best CashBack Credit Card Pays 5% for first 3 months then upto 1.25% / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The credit card issuers such as Capital One have been busy pulling the rug from under their most loyal customers where even a 10+ year relationship means nothing for the banks when it comes to continuing to offer cashback rewards, as customers will have been receiving a whole host of excuses as to why their cashback rewards are ending such as blaming the European Union proposed ruling on capping interchange fees on credit cards to 0.3% from a typical range of 0.6% to 0.8% currently charged on each transaction.

Best Cash ISA SBI 2.3% - 2.8 Year Fix, UK Interest Rates 2016 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain's interest rates starved savers for especially the tax free Cash ISA savings accounts for which Britains banks tend to further penalise by typically paying LESS interest than the SAME term NON ISA accounts, can only be disgusted that despite the large annual ISA allowance of £15,240, are going to find it near impossible to find savings interest rate of over 2%, let alone the pre-funding for lending scheme days (July 2012) when fixed savings interest rates ranged as high as 5%.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Good news, its a new tax year which means savers can deposit upto £15,240 into a tax free cash ISA savings account. Now for the bad news, the banking syndicate cash ISA rates remain at abysmally poor levels, despite some demand being siphoned off into the Coalition governments election bribe of the 4% paying Pensioner bonds against which no cash ISA can compete, though of course these bonds are only available to the over 65's.

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: With mid-generation baby boomers just entering the retirement wave, their ability to stop working is a hot topic that's getting hotter. Study after study questions the ability of public and private pensions to meet the needs of retirees.

Don’t Get Sandbagged: Here’s Where the “New Credit Scorers” Are Watching You / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: In our talks here over the last week or so, we’ve been focusing our attention on so-called “Disruptors” – the catalysts of change that are impacting everything we do.

And one particular point that I made underscores just how wide-ranging these Disruptor-driven changes really are.

As I told you all last week, Disruptors are already changing how we communicate (smartphones), how we date (Match.com, eHarmony), how we mate (Tinder… or so I’ve heard), what we eat (genetically modified and so-called “super foods”), how we work (Monster.com, Jobr), how we get heat, cooling and light (fracking), how we get around (Uber and Tesla), how we get where we’re going (GPS) – and where we stay once we get there (Airbnb).

The Tax Collector’s Puzzle - WAIT: Don't File Those Taxes Just Yet! / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Casey_Research

Those of you in the US know that it’s the least wonderful time of the year: tax time.

Hopefully you haven’t filed your tax return just yet. Maybe you rushed it in because you feel ever so grateful to your government for letting you keep some of your hard-earned cash. Or maybe—like most of us—you wait 'til the very last day out of principle.

Either way, chances are you’re leaving money on the table. We want to show you how to get most of it back.

Will Your Retirement Accounts Survive The Coming Tax Code "Revolution"? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dan_Amerman

Suppose that you live in a capital city under siege, that is surrounded by revolutionary armies.  And while you don't know the exact timing or specifics, you do believe that the overthrow of the current regime is close to a 100 percent certainty. So you take your life savings and enter into a series of binding contracts with the current regime, under advantageous terms for you.  The revolutionary armies enter the capital city, the current regime is ousted, the new regime repudiates the contracts of the previous regime – and you are left penniless.

Best Cash ISA vs Budget 2015 Scrapping Tax on Savings Interest on First £1,000 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's that time of the year again when many savers will be busy rushing to capitalise on their use it or lose it £15k cash ISA annual allowance, though having been raised in July 2014 from £5.5k to £15k does not make today's exercise as big a deal for most savers. Still up until this week it had been a case of ensuring cash is deposited in tax free ISA's than in taxed deposit accounts. However, now everything may be changing for many if not most savers following the Budget 2015 announcement to scrap tax on the first £1k of interest earned which with today's abysmal typical interest rates of 1.5% covers savings pots of as much as £65,000!
