Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.

Here’s a quick look at some of my favorite posts from a year ago this week:

• Think Before You Write That Check – My thoughts on why you should be careful before paying for random transactions with a check. (This actually should have gone up in last weekend’s rundown, but I somehow missed it.)

• The Hottest (and Riskiest?) Real Estate Markets – A rundown of the hottest real estate markets as of last summer.

• Buying Furniture off the Back of a Truck – A cautionary note about buying ‘Thomasville’ furniture off the back of a truck that pulls into your neighborhood.
