It’s Friday, and I think we could all use a Would You Rather! It’s getting harder to pick out some goods that we haven’t done already, but I think today’s is juicy enough to stir up some action ;)
Although technically, it’s more of a “Would you give up ___ for ___” kinda deal, but the concept is pretty much the same – you have to pick one over the other. And let me just start by saying that this one is TOUGH! Okay, here’s today’s question:
Would you…for $15,000 in cash, give up sex for a whole entire year?!
That’s over $1,000 a MONTH in cold hard cash! Or a brand spankin’ new car. A down payment on a small house or plane. 15 plasma tvs. Around the world plane tickets (I think?). Potentially NO credit card debts! A generous charity donation. Or 15,000 double cheeseburgers from McDonald’s! Haha…
So yeah, it’s a lot of money. I just don’t know who could give up such greatness :) And to be fair, let’s make it TWO YEARS if you aren’t regularly getting any to begin with – or else it’s a super easy call. Although in that case, maybe you deserve to be rewarded with the $15Gs anyway? Also, let’s clarify that “sex” is *any* form of it whatsoever before you try getting around it. Hugging and kissing on the lips only, okay? You don’t want the Would You Rather monster coming to get you!
Personally, I don’t think I could do it. I cherish my intimacy wayyy too much. It would be easier if I were saving up for a super spectacular goal where I could see the direct impact $15ks would have, but since I’m not I can’t say it would be worth it. And plus, how would we be able to make little J’s this year?! Hah! Better keep that in mind before making your decision ;)
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
