How Free Bets Have Impacted the Online Casino Industry / Personal_Finance / Gambling

By: Submissions

The gambling and online casino industry is one which is always evolving and changing, with new technology coming onto the market all the time to give customers a better experience. Online casinos vary considerably – after all, if they were all alike, there’d be no way of customers choosing between them. And where customers choose to gamble depends on how much they want to spend. One way in which gambling companies have enticed new customers to their sites is through free bets when customers sign up – bonuses that customers can use to place a bet either in part or full. Free bets should theoretically be just that, but the reality is that they are more complicated, with terms that vary depending on the bookmaker’s offers.

UK Savers Lock in Cash to Beat Inflation Erosion / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Savers looking to beat the eroding impact of inflation will find that fixed bond rates have risen in the past 12 months, so they can now get a better true return on their cash. Not only this, but easy access and notice account rates are also increasing, however none of the rates on offer in these sectors are currently able to beat inflation.

Despite the fact that inflation has now risen above the Government target of 2%, the latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that it still remains lower than the level seen in both May 2017, when the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) for April was announced at 2.7%, and May 2018 when inflation was 2.4%. Better still, savings rates have risen over both time periods.

Financial Independence Has Nothing to Do with Being a Millionaire / Personal_Finance / Money Saving

By: Jared_Dillian

I am on Facebook, and there is a lot of crap on Facebook. Even the non-political crap is stuff I just do not believe in.

For example, people say that you should spend your money on experiences, not things. There is some spiritual component to this that I don’t get.

I like spending money on experiences (particularly travel), but I like spending money on things more. Clothes in particular.

You feel (and act) differently when you are wearing an expensive suit and an expensive pair of shoes. People who make $150,000 a year and still get all their clothes at Target do this not out of frugality, but low self-esteem.

It is good and right to spend money on yourself now and then.

The other crap you hear on Facebook, and pretty much everywhere else, is that money doesn’t make you happy.

Not Maxing Out Your 401(k) or IRA Contributions Is Stupid / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Jared_Dillian

Uncle Sam doesn’t give out too many freebies when it comes to tax time, except in the form of retirement plans.

Surprisingly, not many people take advantage of them. Only 41% of people contribute to a 401(k) when they have the option to do so.

A 401(k) allows annual contributions up to $19,000. If you maxed out your contributions, you could save thousands of dollars on your taxes.

Why do more people not contribute?

If You and Your Spouse Argue About Money, You Have to Read This / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Jared_Dillian

People fight about money all the time. It has been quantified. A third or more of all arguments in marriages are about money.

Usually this falls into one of two categories:
  • Spouse A thinks that Spouse B spends too much money.
  • Spouse A thinks that Spouse B doesn’t spend enough money (i.e., is a CF).

I advocate for married couples to keep their money separate. My wife and I have always kept our money separate—for 21+ years. And it works great for us.

DIY Money Saving Magic with Wood Moisture Meter for DIY Repairs / Personal_Finance / Home Maintenance

By: HGR

Here's how a cheap moisture meter can save you a lot of time and money in DIY repairs. For instance we bought a cheap meter from Amazon for just £14 (https://amzn.to/2GZZnlA) to test the boards on a 10 year old decking so that we don't unnecessarily replace good boards, better to get the job all done in one go rather than having to revisit a few months later.

The Moisture meter has 4 sharp prongs, It basically works by sticking the prongs into wood and then gives a percentage moisture reading, anything over 20% means the woods likely rotting, most wood should read less than 20%. I tested it on a tree and it came back at 40%. The dry deck boards generally gave 0%-5% readings so were fine. 1 board that needed replacing underside was giving readings of over 30%!

It has been said for decades and clearly proven too that the person with deep pockets has a way through almost everything in a society and who doesn't want to be that person. Being financially lucid is a contingent task but attaining financial freedom is not an easy engagement by a regular nine to five job.

There are nowadays numerous online opportunities to fill in that “being broke” gap at the end of the month. Following these new era methods, you can see an evident change in your lifestyle.

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Gambling and betting revenue in New Jersey has been on a steady rise for years. New Jersey’s economy, in general, has been successful in recent years, with industries like pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics being some of the biggest contributors to the state’s recent economic success. However, since its advent in 2013, online gambling has been just as important; as the industry was an instant success and the state’s economy has been one of the biggest beneficiaries.

Pension Funds Recover but Annuity Income Falls / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: MoneyFacts

New data from the latest Moneyfacts UK Personal Pension Trends Treasury Report has revealed mixed fortunes for the retirement sector during Q1 2019, with pension fund returns performing strongly but annuity rates declining.

Pension fund recovery

Pension funds endured a marked downturn in Q4 2018, with the average pension fund falling by 7.3%. As a result, in 2018 pension funds suffered their biggest losses since the 2008 financial crisis. However, performance-wise, pension funds have made a bright start to 2019. In Q1 2019, the average pension fund recovered much of last year’s lost ground by generating returns of 6.7% – the strongest quarterly pension fund performance since Q3 2016.

8 Reasons Why Investment in Education Always Pays Off / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Submissions

University brings about so much imagination within us. Secondary school is over and we think of furthering our education and obtaining the great successes that await us. It seems anything can be possible as we transition into adulting. Picture having the help of an Oxbridge diploma with the highest accolades. Companies scrambling to offer the best career opportunities and suddenly the corporate ladder seems to be much shorter. But then we consider all the baggage that comes with uni. The need to find time for assignments, devoting 4+ years of life to courses, and the cost of a quality education in the UK is quite substantial. With skyrocketing tuition, many wonder if the financial investment for a degree makes sense. For those of you on the fence about higher education, let’s take a look at 8 reasons why an investment in education will always pay off.

How Can a College Student Invest Wisely? / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Submissions

Investing is an important issue at any age, and it’s an excellent opportunity to learn about finances and earn some money. When you're a college student, though, that's a huge advantage and responsibility, especially if to think that you need to find and give up some money for this hobby. Therefore, some people think that you should only start after graduation, but we cannot agree with this statement. Of course, not every student has the extra money in his or her pocket, but if you do find some – that's a good chance to stand out from the crowd.

Paying the Retirement Bill / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Rodney_Johnson

I find myself thinking more about retirement.

I don’t want to trade my daily routine for the cruise ship, but I’m developing a laser focus on generating more income that I can put away for later use… which explains my latest business foray into the golf cart rental business.

The venture is turning a profit after a couple of months, and our biggest battle right now is with mother nature. What I would give for a sunny weekend on the Texas coast!

But I face bigger hurdles in my efforts to generate cash than just the weather: the Fed and the tax man. And the two intersect in a very unlikely place: pensions.
