Hi Friends! If you’re reading this right now, it means I won an all expense-paid trip to Blog World! Woohoo!! Courtesy of my new best friends, Bankrate ;) Haha… or as you probably know them as, “the kings of financial calculators.”
I’ve actually been using their tools for years now (it’s how I calculated our mortgage payoff details), so I’m honored to be selected as their latest giveaway winner. Even if it was random ;) Ya never know what you can win sometimes unless you try!!
But besides my total and utter excitement for all this, the REAL reason I’m telling y’all is so we can meet up if you’re gonna be there too! I’d love to catch up over beers and/or dance floors (my fave part of these conferences), so if you’ll be attending be sure to drop me a note: j (at) budgets are sexy (dot) com. I think there will be a lot of other personal finance bloggers there too – should be fun! Never been and I hear it’s the mecca of all blog conferences… we’ll see if I can stay out of trouble ;)
In the meantime, enjoy a few blog posts I’ve lined up for ya while out in L.A. We got some feisty ones to share with ya, so I hope you like ’em! I’ll be back in a few days to catch up and spill the gossip… Happy weekend, everyone :)
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.
