Weekly Roundup – Better Comments Edition

Written by Nickel - 3 Comments

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

Okey-dokey… I just finished adding a couple of new features to the commenting system here at FiveCentNickel. First of all, my responses will now be highlighted with a light grey background.

Second, and much more importantly, I’ve added the ability to edit your comments for up to 10 minutes after you click the submit button. Thus, you can now clean up any errors, add more information, etc. even after your comment goes live.

Special thanks to J.D. Roth of GetRichSlowly for the inspiration. If there are any other features that you’re really hankering for, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming…

NCN talked about the importance of keeping things simple.

FMF asked if it’s okay to lie about your salary in a job interview.

J.D. advised readers to know how their accounts work.

Flexo talked about grabbing the last of the high rate CDs. I just wish I would’ve acted faster when PenFed recently offered CDs paying 6% APY.

JLP put together a nice illustration on how to calculate taxes.

MBH listed seven ways of investing in yourself.

Jim is a fan of renting instead buying (at least in certain circumstances).

Jeremy agrees with Jim.

LazyMan listed some new features on Prosper.

Ben wondered why some people are ignorant when it comes to money.

4M discussed the dangers of thinking about things in terms of percentages.

SVB broke down the cost of living for a family of four.

Sun talked about HSA accounts.

Finally, The Consumerist noted that consumers will be buying fewer and cheaper presents this year.

Comments (scroll down to add your own):

  1. I agree with Jim and Jeremy. I own rentals and prefer to have them filled which would mean that I need people to rent. They are right that some people just have to rent rather than purchase like my clients coming from Dallas. We can get them into a new home but they would end up with an outrageous prepayment penalty. Better to rent for now.
