SAVING Money with Credit Cards

Personally, I sleep on airplanes and I travel budget, which is why I have zero care about miles cards. I'm a rebates guy and it just makes sense for me. If you travel a lot, perhaps a miles card might be better for you. I enjoy getting back cold hard cash rather than accumulating points for a trip which I might never take. To be honest, I know very few people who are struggling with credit card … [Read more...]

It was March 18, 2003. Will Saunders and David Burgess were 67 meters up in the sky. Aside from the wind, it was deathly quiet. The roar of the city was miles away. Balancing precariously on the glazed white granite tiles, they steadied themselves while tightly gripping their buckets of red paint. They couldn’t afford to fall – they had an important statement to make. Their mission: To … [Read more...]

All-in costs, breakeven costs, cash costs

Analysts of deep cyclicals, industrials, commodities would be very familiar with these terms. These terms are invented by the financial industry to try to help analysts analyze real businesses from their desktops, in plush offices, hundreds or thousands of miles away from where the businesses actually took place. It bears little resemblance of how real ops managers actually thought about their … [Read more...]

Even with the recent changes to OCBC 360 savings account, the ability to earn up to 2.25% of your money (capped at 60k) still makes it a top choice to put your money into it.

In the unending quest to save money on as many expenses as possible, I stumbled upon Travel Smart Rewards a few years back, a “points for miles” (technically it’s “points for kilometers”, since we use the metric system here) scheme where you clock points with your ez-link card by travelling during designated decongesting times in the morning, in order to reduce passenger load on the train. Do take … [Read more...]
