Hey, I just met you, and this is Lazy... get these fast finance fixes and mail me, maybe?

Personal Finance Links (Bon Bini Aruba Edition)

Written by

This week, my wife and I are enjoying a vacation in Aruba. We've already implemented a few basic ways to save money in Aruba. One tip that I'd add is that you can give Texas de Brazil your e-mail address and get 50% discounts on your entire bill. That tip works at any of the chain's restaurants - not just Aruba. We might end up going twice - the food and the deal is that good.

In other news, Las Vegas has set the over/under of how much Dunkin Donuts iced coffee my wife will drink on this trip at 10 gallons. Considering the wackiness of being able to get Dunkin Donuts in Aruba and not in California, I'm going with the over. She noticed our timeshare had a pitcher and seriously suggested we just bring it by and ask them to fill it up and charge whatever.

I plan on having some good articles for you this week. However, to paraphrase yet another of my favorite Serenity quotes... what I plan and what takes place ain't ever exactly been similar.

While I come up with ways to force-feed you more Joss Whedon quotes check out these personal finance links:

    Nice roundup. Thanks for including my aging parents post. Now go have a good time!

  2. I never heard of anyone drinking iced tea in Las Vegas before! That was a good tip about Texas de Brazil 50%, thanks.

  3. I’m a bit surprised that companies still value people’s email address so much. I mean, they do realize that I’m not giving them my main address, right – just my spam address.

    Here’s the thing – email lists are worht a lot of money. Think about someone like Glenn Beck who has an email list. He has millions and millions who get his daily email. This email is invaluable to promote his company, plus (of course) there are ads in them.

    Even if only 1/10 gave their real email the email list is still well worth their time. It’s a direct link to a consumer, and it’s not as blatant or annoying as a phone call.

  5. Yeah, I understand the value of the lists … just that the per-address price that some companies are paying to acquire them seems a bit high. If the Texas de Brazil thing has a 10% yield, what’s their cost of acquiring that one good address …

    Although, I guess it’s no different than a BOGO coupon.

    (shrug) I’ll happily give out one of my addresses in exchange for a discount :)

  6. Nice set of personal finance links! I hope one of my posts would also be included. I’m a personal finance blogger too. :)
