Recap: Challenging Amazon, Mortgage Hacking, Bad Groupon Cards & More
Some news from around the web:
How to Remove Escrow From Your Mortgage and Save Hundreds Each Year by Moneymetagame. Interesting read for optimizing your mortgage and potentially getting some extra credit card spend out of it. I wouldn’t calculate credit card spend as 10% due to signup bonuses since I’d meet the signup bonus other ways, but even calculating at lower amounts could make sense for some.
A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words: What Are Merrill+, FlexPerks, UBS Points Worth? by Uscreditcardguide. Nice graphs for optimizing your redemptions with the Merrill+, Flexperks, and UBS cards.
Vendor negotiations with Amazon.com by Windbagmiles. We’re used to thinking about Amazon from a buyer’s prospective and a seller’s prospective. This is an interesting look at a third angle: those supplying Amazon with products sold by Amazon themselves. I’m pretty surprised Amazon caved, would have thought they’d boot a small-time supplier without blinking.
