I have recently released my very own (and first) Android App and it’s called Insurance Returns. And if you have an Android Phone/Tablet (preferably those 10.1″) and you are looking for an App that can help you to calculate the compounded rate of returns for your Regular Savings Plan or Single Premium Plan, you can try out this app today!
If you are one of those who need to relax and pamper with a bit of holiday towards the end of the year but keen to save a bit of money especially from hotels – have you checked out AirBNB, an online resource for you to check out apartments to rent?
A New Concept Of Saving While Enjoying
I personally like the new concept behind AirBNB because they help most people to save (especially on expensive hotel charges or hotel meals) while still being able to enjoy the holiday.
And there are quite a number of benefits should this concept become popular as well as a norm:
1. You get to make real friends while overseas. Most of the time if you are staying in a hotel, you get to make friends with the Hotel Staffs (and it’s more of business relationship) whereas staying in an rented apartment (especially if the owner is staying there as well) – you get to create a better friendship. Should you decide to go back to the same country to re-create the same memories, you know who you can go to when you are there.
2. You get to save more of everything. The best thing about going on a holiday is the ability to enjoy lots more activities but without having to spend so much. If you are a sociable person and can make friends with anybody, especially the owner of the rented apartment, you can really get more things done and save more money. Once you know how the locals live their daily lifestyle without having to spend so much, this is one good benefit that you need to have.
A New Concept Of Supplementing Your Retirement Lifestyle With Your Own Apartment
If you are currently using online brokers for your investment trading and for finding out great stock funds, there’s a new service under Mint.com which you can start using today that will help you to find out the best brokerage.
About Mint.com Brokerage Search
We all understand that there’re many online brokers to choose from and most of them look and even speak the same. But, in fact, there’s differences in terms of the fees and commissions that are being charged. And if you do take all these into considerations, they can affect your overall investment rate of return.
So, to help you save on fees and commissions, Mint.com has actually introduced a Brokerage Search Service that will help you to find out the best brokerage firm based on your online trading activity and your current brokerage account.
The Different Features Of The Mint.com Brokerage Search
These are the few areas that I like about the Brokerage Search Page
The first few sections help you to understand your trading habits and most importantly – the fees and commissions. If you have been trading without knowing all these figures, it’s actually time to call up your brokerage firms for the numbers. Once you have them, you can input them into the boxes.
