 Forum: Tips, Tricks, Links, Pointers   Topic: Tips on Buying a New Phone for Full Price?

Here's my deal: I am on a Tmobile plan where I pay $20 less per month than most other people because I'm not in a contract. That means if I want a new phone, I have to pay full price for it, which I'm fine with because over the two (or more) years I have the phone, I save more than the discount woul...

Thanks didy42! You're right it is hard but I'd be happy to hear more if you're willing to share more specifics...I can keep a secret with the best of them!

This is great stuff! Thanks everyone! It sounds like one key takeaway here is that the industry you're in plays a big role in getting raises. Traders are another totally different subset that I'm interested in: they get paid in a very formulaic way . You made X for the firm so you'll get an X% bonus...

Awesome! Here's what I'm after: what was your strategy for asking for more money? I know going to a new job is pretty self explanatory, but getting a raise at your current job is a little trickier. Did you do anything beforehand to leverage your position? How did you make your case? Who did you talk...

I'm putting together a guide to help people boost their salary by either creating new value at their current jobs or moving to a new one. But I need case studies! So if you fall into any of these groups, please let me know! ⋅ Asked for and gotten a raise ⋅ Left your job for anoth...

I like Kombat's advice: find a way to do something you otherwise wouldn't have. Kind of like a last "gift" from your grandmother. And do not put the money all into an index fund. I love index funds as much as the next person, but if this is money you'll be using for a new house in a year o...

I like the "friends and beer and pizza" idea, but I wouldn't trust my friends moving my furniture, especially if they've been drinking. There is something to be said for the efficiency and speed with which someone who has done this type of thing before can move and pack up boxes. When we w...

I recently moved (it was awful) and after writing about it got some good tips from readers and friends that I wish I had had beforehand. Anyone here have some good moving tips?

We spent only $300 but there were stairs and rain involved...not fun.

Go for Vanguard, the company is great and their philosophy is too. Conservative, low cost, long term. I opened my Roth at Scottrade because I didn't have enough money either. When I got the 3k together I immediately switched over to Vanguard and they are, by far, the lowest cost. And since I'm an in...

It's an age-old debate: throw it all in now and forget about it since it's such a long-term play or put in a little at a time to wipe out any fluctuations? Personally, I like to go in a little at a time, but I'm obsessive about this stuff and love checking my accounts all the time. If you're like me...

NoBob pretty much hit the nail on the head there. I find it a lot easier to visualize with a chart: http://onn-image.s3.amazonaws.com/Cash-Secured_Put.gif . I'm a visual guy so seeing all the trades and strategies makes a lot more sense when I put their charts side by side like this. @StevePierce: s...

I'm glad to see options being discussed on JD's forum! I've gotten into options over the past year and was surprised to find that they weren't as risky as what I assumed. My favorite strategy is still the cash-secured put, even though I haven't put it into play in the real world yet. I work for ONN....

This is a great question and it's really interesting because your job isn't a typical office job. So not having a lot of face-to-face interaction with your job puts a wrinkle in the whole thing. I've written about becoming a better employee to work your way up and get a pay raise, and I think some o...
