If you haven’t heard, Ramit Sethi, personal finance blogger, kick-your-finances-into-gear extraordinaire, and overall cool guy has published his book, pointedly named “I Will Teach You To Be Rich.”

If you’re already planning to buy the book, join in on Ramit’s giveaway at his site. He’s giving away a Kindle every hour (2 left as of this writing), and a chance to win $1,000 throughout the day from the good folks at Mint.  Simply forward your email receipt to iboughtthebook@iwillteachyoutoberich.com and you’ll have a chance to enter in the giveaway.  Other prizes and full details can be found at Ramit’s blog.

I haven’t fully read the book yet, but of the chapters I’ve skim across, the book seems to be very solid and contains no-nonsense, straight-forward personal finance advice along with steps that works. Stick around on the personal finance blogsphere and I’m sure in the coming weeks you’ll be seeing reviews popping up on various personal finance blogs.



Free burgers is nice and all, but giving away relevant and practical stuff is even better.  H&R Block is giving away three copies of Tax Cut to readers of this horrific blog (see, there are perks to reading this blog, after all).

Update: Unfortunately all the 30% off promo code are expired. You can still get Equifax Score Watch for $12.95, cheaper than myFICO’s $14.95 per month rate.

You’ll have to be a true credit junkie to know this, but myFICO is celebrating their 8th anniversary and is offering 30% off any of their FICO products.  It doesn’t beat the previous 50% off discount, but 30% isn’t too shabby either.

All these discount updates I’ve posted through out the years should confirm one thing: you should never pay full price for any myFICO scores!

FICO Score Watch$12.95 $9.7425% off discount

FICO Credit Score $31.90 $22.3230% off discount

FICO Quarterly Monitoring – $49.95 $34.9730% off discount

Suze Orman’s FICO Kit $49.95 $34.9730% off discount



It’s almost two in the morning, I can’t sleep, and I have a 14 hour flight in the next couple of hours. Fan-freaking-tastic.

After careful consideration, I’ve realized that the best way to grind through a spell of late-night sleep deprivation would be not one, but two juicy In-N-Out burger.  Super sweet.

In-n-Out Burgers and Gift Cards

Long time readers will remember that I’ve promised to give away In-N-Out gifts cards whenever I eat at In-N-Out. I think I’ve forgotten to purchase the gift cards a few times while enjoying a burger — but what can you do, I’m a selfish bastard.
