UK Christmas Sales 2016 High Street and Online Start Dates Full List / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain is enjoying a post BrExit consumer boom courtesy of the Government and Bank of England hitting the panic button following the BrExit vote, injecting an extra £150 billion into the UK economy. So Britain's shoppers with more cash in their wallets look set to go on a debt fuelled spending binge at the cathedrals of modern Britain, and so consumers infected with sales fever will be out hunting for bargains as Christmas has long since morphed into a month long relentless advertising campaign to keep consumers spending all the way into January.

Morrisons Cheap £10 Battery Powered 200 LED Christmas Lights Review / Personal_Finance / Shopping

By: Anika_Walayat

Just how good are battery powered christmas lights as sold by Morrisons and many others? The obvious attraction is that there is no mains wiring involved so should be relatively easy to put up sets of lights all over the place.

This is a review of a string of 200 LED lights bought from Morrisons for just £10, though don't forget the cost of the batteries (£4), so total cost is £14 which Morrisons promises should last 60 days when on their 6 hour timer. Find out in our test if they at least last for the festive season or not and what do they actually look like in our comprehensive review.

The Sad Truth of Saving for the Future / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Savers are no doubt aware of the struggle to earn a decent return in the current market. Interest rates are at record lows and there is little incentive for consumers to put money aside, particularly if they have a short-term savings goal. As a result, savers may be facing a savings shortfall for the future.

The latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows the significant difference in the amount of interest on offer today compared to previous years, and how much savers are losing out on.

How to Beat UK Savings Crisis with Child Junior Cash ISA, Pension's and Life-time ISA / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain's spanking new Chancellor, Philip Hammond recently threw some scraps at Britain's hard pressed savers with his 2.2% savings bond due to go live early 2017 by which time the CPI Inflation will be nudging 3% and RPI 4%, which illustrates its just a smoke and mirrors exercise, and even then will be limited to a measly £3k investment fixed for 3 years.

UK inflation is set to soar as I covered in my earlier analysis. And so the chancellors announcement does nothing to prevent the inevitable stealth theft of purchasing power of peoples hard earned savings and wages.

New NS&I 2.2% Savings Bond Ahead of 2017 Stealth Inflation Theft of Purchasing Power / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

With my forecast for CPI inflation expected to accelerate to over 3% per annum during 2017 and RPI perhaps nudging above 4%. The chancellor Philip Hammond in his first and last Autumn statement took the time to announce a 3 year fixed rate NS&I savings bond paying 2.2% available to all over age 16 from spring 2017. Yes 'currently' with RPI at 2%, 2.2% whilst not great sounds reasonable given the desert like landscape of today's savings market. But by the time it actually goes live and becomes available to UK savers, the now near decade long trend of the stealth theft of the purchasing power of peoples earnings and savings will continue which this propaganda bond will not provide any protection against, especially since its capped at just £3k!

Consumers should not bury their heads in the sand over debt / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Submissions

To coincide with the first ever Financial Capability Week, the Credit Services Association (CSA) has issued some simple guidance around debt, and particularly how to avoid becoming a case of ‘mistaken identity’ and how to resolve the matter should it occur.

·       Keep creditors up-to-date with current contact details: If you move, change phone number, email address, or even change your name, inform all of your creditors, including your Local Authority. Most problems start when a creditor is unable to reach the customer at the last known contact address. This means that vital correspondence might never be received.

The battle for a cash-only world is getting hotter. The latest battlefront? India.

The latest rupee news? Outrageous.

Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi – beloved of Western elites for a variety of reasons – has just announced that all 500 Indian rupee Notes ($7.50) and 1,000 Indian rupee ($15) notes will no longer be considered legal tender.  The 500 and 1,000 rupee, by the way, are the two largest denominations in India.  Equivalent to the US banning the $100 and $50.

Points Reward Credit Cards that Become ‘Pointless’ / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Shoppers that frequently pay by card might decide to open a reward credit card to use as an alternative to their debit card, so that they can earn points every time they spend. However, not all cards are as rewarding as they may seem.

A points scheme is useful for those who want to gain a little extra by turning the points into vouchers or other rewards, but sometimes these rewards can take a long time and a significant spend to add up to anything worthwhile. In addition, some cards will charge higher rates of interest on purchases than could be achieved elsewhere, so if shoppers are not careful, the interest could outweigh any benefits.

The more I think about where the “monetary policy community” of academic elites has brought us, the angrier I get. It’s been a long time since I’ve been this passionately upset about something.

Almost everything the Fed did to us since 2008 falls into two broad categories: interest rate repression and quantitative easing.

Savers have Little to look forward to as Interest Rate Cuts Keep Coming / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that rate reductions in the savings market have now outweighed rate rises for 12 consecutive months.

In September, Moneyfacts recorded 29 savings rate rises. Disappointingly, rate reductions over the same period completely outshone this figure, with the number of rate decreases standing at 164 – which translates to around six cuts to every rate rise – with some deals falling by as much as 0.75%.
