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

Here are this week’s highlights from the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond…

JLP of AllFinancialMatters hates the way that credit card companies charge interest. It seems that one last interest charge posted to his account, delaying (ever so slightly) his debt freedom.

MightyBargainHunter asks whether or not we’ll ever see gas below $2/gallon again. He doesn’t think so, and I tend to agree with him.

Flexo of ConsumerismCommentarylamented that TIAA-CREF didn’t fund his SEP-IRA in advance of the April 17th cutoff. Hopefully it’ll work out for him (they claim that it will). He also talked a bit about Disneyland, and how they didn’t save any money. Since we’re on the subject, I’m going to go away and give my post about getting discount Disney tickets a shameless plug.

FMF of FreeMoneyFinance posted a feel-good wrapup to his family’s garage door saga. In short, his son trashed a neighbor’s garage door, but ultimately made good.

Jim of pfBlueprint has a question… How long is your commute? Mine is currently thirty minutes (give or take) but will be dropping to about 15 minutes after we move.

Nick from Punny Money bought some tomato seeds, but got the shaft. Now he’s pissed and trying to figure out what to do…

Finally, this isn’t finance-related, but I still think that it’s worth pointing out… The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently issued a recall for Magnetix building sets. As it turns out, these things can do some pretty serious damage to young’uns.
