Starbucks announced today that it is raising prices of its already pricey drinks in atleast 2 parts of the US. They are charging more for select drinks in the Northeast and Sunbelt regions. Excludes California and Southern Florida.
The average price hike is 1% across the two regions. The two drinks that are exempt from this price hike are grande brewed coffee and grande caffe latte (note grande). The price hike will help them offset rising commodity costs in 2012.
I have to admit I am a Starbucks fan and I own a Starbucks gold card. However I try to not go overboard with Starbucks. Here is how I indulge while not going overboard, and you can too
If you are a Starbucks fan make sure you sign up for their rewards program and swipe your card every single time. Spending less on coffees and lattes also makes for a great new year's resolution ;)

Amazon is offering a local deal - $100 travelocity gift card for $50. The link is valid for my local area, but it looks like the deal is nationwide and it shouldnt matter where you buy it from. It is valid at over 55000 hotels worldwide.
After the holidays is a good season to travel as its off-peak and you can end up getting a better service in most places. Of course, Travelocity is offering the deal to pick up slack after the holiday season as well. I see this as a win-win situation. I like Travelocity and I have often booked airfare and hotels from that site without any complaints.
It is valid for another 16 hours 30 minutes only.. The deal has expired.
So, go get it if you are thinking about taking a vacation soon :).
A credit report or credit history is the record of an individual's creditworthiness. When you apply for a loan or a credit card, financial institutions use information on your credit report to determine if they should make you a loan and at what interest rate. Worse the credit report, higher the chances of loan denial or a higher interest rate.
In the United States, three major credit bureaus that supply this credit report are Equifax, Experian and Transunion. When you apply for a credit card or a loan, the respective financial institution forwards your information to one or all of these credit bureaus in order to determine your creditworthiness.
A lot of people confuse credit reports for credit scores. Both are completely different, though related, and both provided by the above mentioned 3 credit bureaus. More information related to obtaining your free credit score in my upcoming post.
Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act(FACTA) was passed in 2003, which required all 3 major credit bureaus to make the respective credit reports available to individuals once every 12 months. Before that, an individual had no access to this information - ?!? I cant have my own credit report? This access was important in order to ascertain what was being reported on the credit reports, was in fact, accurate and to avoid identity theft.
Enter AnnualCreditReport.com. It requires users to enter basic information like name, age and social security number. It then drives you to each individual credit agency's website, where you answer few multiple choice questions to verify your identity and then voila - you have your credit report.
Since each bureau offers one report every 12 months, you can choose to get one every 4 months or all at once. Its upto you. I prefer getting one every 4 months just to keep myself up-to-date round the year.
