Sun, 16 Oct 2016 17:20:26 +0000What a great teachable moment for you daughter. Everything costs something in life whether we watch ads with tv or on the screen of our ipad. Seems like a great life lesson for her :)
Wed, 12 Oct 2016 19:39:38 +0000Sounds like you'be got frugality down, John! I need to work on using cash back more often. I once bought quite a few smart phones and used one of the cashback websites and I got quite a bit back from it! If you can stack discounted gift cards from sites like giftcard granny you'll save even more. Check out my blog, Frugal Income if you get a chance. Thanks!
Mon, 03 Oct 2016 17:27:28 +0000I wish my customers knew that I don't decide when holiday decorations are stocked in my store. I wish my boss had to pay me a dollar every time a customer said, "Christmas already! Aren't you guys jumping the gun!" I also wish they'd read the fine print on advertised sales-while quantities last means we don't keep an infinite supply in stock.Our distribution centers send limited quantities on certain sale items. I wish all parents would have "the talk" with their kids before entering the store; "Stay next to mommy and daddy while we shop. Don't touch anything and this is not a playground." We are not paid to keep an eye on your kids. If some weirdo grabs your child in the aisles and takes off with them it's not my problem. We don't make store policy, we can't give you a bigger discount on sales items and we can't possibly know where every piece of merchandise is in the store especially in one that has over ten thousand different pieces of merchandise. So forgive me if I don't know off the top of my head exactly where each size of pressure treated lumber is.
Wed, 07 Sep 2016 03:54:58 +0000Numbers have always fascinated me (since I was really young!) so I'm predisposed to be interested in these kinds of things. (Thanks for stopping by!)
Tue, 06 Sep 2016 17:05:20 +0000To be honest John, I had no idea that the serial number on the bill affected the value at all. I'm going to be much more careful from now on!
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 17:08:14 +0000Absolutely, my pleasure!
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 14:19:03 +0000Thanks for the mention John, much appreciated! FYI, if you want to integrate Splender into your cash back comparison tool I can get you an xml feed with stores & rates. Just give me shout. Best, -Garrett
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 13:45:38 +0000Multiply the 11g by 1/20 for the fraction of the karat gold in the item, and then by 12/24 = 1/2 because it's 12-karat. That gives 0.275 grams of pure gold. At current spot price ($43.96 per gram) that makes the melt value of the gold a little over $12.
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 06:36:34 +0000So 11 grams of 1/20 12kGF would be valued at how much?
