Weekly Roundup – Credit Addict Facelift Edition

A few months back, I mentioned that I had launched a credit card website called Credit Addict. It’s been in need of a facelift for awhile, and this weekend I finally got around dressing it up. In case you’re curious, I invite you to drop by and check it out — and maybe be subscribe to receive updates via RSS or e-mail.

And now, the roundup…

MBH wants to know how much you’ll fight for in the checkout line. I have to admit that I’m sometimes driven to fight for a pittance just on principle. Not usually in the checkout line where I might inconvenience others, but I’m otherwise not afraid to stand up for myself.

Jeremy wants to encourage you to start planning for holiday gift-giving today.

Pinyo put together an interesting graphic for visualizing wants vs. needs.

Finally, Kay published a list of the states ranked by tax rates. In case you’re curious, Alaska has the lowest rate whereas New Jersey has the highest.
