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

Here’s a quick look at some of the articles that caught my eye over the past week…

Jim talked about how to deal with an aggressive accountant.

Flexo noted that the U.S. Mint is going to try dollar coins (again). Personally, I think that this is an idea whose time has come, but the American public doesn’t seem to agree.

JLP has a list of nine ways to manage money effectively.

FMF has a meta-list of the best of his best personal finance posts.

MBH has some thoughts on Black Friday and what lengths retailers might have to go to in order to keep people coming back year after year.

MoneySmartLife talks about the possibility of saved passwords being stolen from Firefox.

MM of is dealing with high delinquency rates on his Prosper loans, and it’s probably going to get a lot worse before all is said and done.

Jonathan wonders aloud about whether or not the Costco Executive membership is worth it. As it turns out, you can’t lose…

That’s it for this week. As always, I’d also like to urge you to swing by the MBN Forums to check out what everyone’s talking about.

  1. Glad you found the Firefox passwords post. Thanks for letting others know about the issue, it could be a nasty one for anyone that it bites.
