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

Once again, I’ve managed to let my Friday roundup to slip until Sunday, but here it is just the same… A ragtag bunch of eye-catching articles from across the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond…

FMF at FreeMoneyFinance advises us to save money by cutting out our vices — and he even throws in a little confession of his own!

Jim at pfBlueprint wants to know if you’d be willing to turn your in tax-chest friends for a cash reward. PFAdvice also touched on this subject.

JLP at AllFinancialMatters talks about circumstances under which bill paying can hurt your credit.

Flexo from ConsumerismCommentary talks about how rising interest rates will affect the typical American.

MightyBargainHunter asks (and answers) when’s a cent not worth a cent? The answer might surprise you.

Savvy Saver is considering her options when it comes to financing a new garage (complete with a swanky new ‘man room’)… What to do? Save? Tap the (limited) equity in her house? Use zero percent balance transfers? Stop by to find out.

MakingOurWay has been compiling a nice list of things/places/services that require a change of address when you move. Something tells me that I’ll be coming back to this post in about six weeks when we make our big move.

NCN of NCNBlog finally got around to writing his obligatory ‘About Me’ post.

Finally, I just wanted to remind everyone that I’ve recently posted a bunch more ING Direct referral links, so you’re just a mouse click away from earning a free $25.
