When was the last time you took a vacation? And not a business trip or a long weekend for your cousin’s wedding — a real vacation.

In the three previous summers I've been with Tag I've always wanted to go but never had the chance. This year I'm going! This trip is going to be a lot of fun because I'll

I just spent four days at a Las Vegas hotel, and I'm about to spend a week in Mexico. When you're kinda cheap like me, the thought of spending money on 10 days of vacations is enough to make you sick. But never fear! Every vacation doesn't have to be expensive. Here are a few ways I've saved money on

I think it's safe to say that every single person in the entire world loves William Shatner. The guy is hilarious, and is not afraid to make a complete idiot of himself. One of his more ridiculous acting jobs includes his sponsorship of Priceline, the website where you can name your own price on hotels, flights and other stuff. Most

This post was written by guest blogger Michael, the founder of Credit Card Forum. A couple months ago Kevin wrote a post about how he made $881.85 in free money last year, most of it through credit card rewards.

Your Dreams Deserve Better Than “Tomorrow”

In case you hadn't heard, the world is ending tomorrow. Yep, it's in the bible. Some crazy old white dude figured it out. I blame the translators.

As some of you may know, I used to be a professional fantasy football journalist. My writing today is strictly limited to personal finance, but I do still play fantasy football. At least I did play fantasy football until last night when I was eliminated from playoff contention! You may be thinking, "Who cares? It's a dumb game."

I’m Going to Phoenix!

After work today, I'm hopping on an airplane and going to Phoenix.
