Mortgage rates are at or near all time low but still....don't get taken to the cleaners.

Get a list of lenders for your area with their rates (deals a lot better than credit unions).

Getting cleaned out by your bank every month with fees and more fees? Fire your bank and join a Credit Union.

Don't let the phrase "but we have so many ATMs" fool you. Free ATMs are everywhere for me too. All 7-Eleven ATMs and Costco ATMs for example.

Look up your ATMs online http://www.co-opnetwork.org/atm-locator/ or download the "ATM Locator" app by CO-OP Network.

You can easily get carried away trying to get quality home theater speakers spending thousands or even tens of thousands of $.

Here is a thought: seriously good bang for your home theater buck at Home Theater Direct http://www.htd.com/

If you are gonna cough up the big bucks month after month with one of the big wireless carriers, might as well save some $ on the initial hardware cost when signing up with 2 year contracts. Instead of signing up at a carrier store, consider some options:

http://wireless.amazon.com/ <-- known for "don't care about profit, just want traffic right now"
http://www.wirefly.com <-- alternate to compare
http://www.letstalk.com <-- another option to compare
http://www.moosewireless.com/ <-- gives you comparisons

Inline with Ooma customers' interests (saving $ without compromising quality), I think that folks are interested in others' money saving ideas/experiences. If one knows it all already, great. ;)

However, I feel that these posts would be of service, at the least, to some. I encourage folks to share their experiences and ideas (to be respectful, I'd shy away from ideas detrimental to Ooma business). Hollywood posted a great idea/experience but unfortunately was deleted by self later for whatever reason; please do not be discouraged to share. Share the good stuff in life with your fellow forum members.

With that said, today's topic is eBay bidding and Amazon price drop alerts.

Make your eBay bidding life easier and save $ at the same time. Use a free eBay auction sniper.

There are others out there but I use http://www.gixen.com

  • Automatically places your bids on eBay at the last moment.
  • Your computer doesn't have to be on.
  • Group bidding: first successful snipe cancels all the others <-- love this.
  • Unlimited number of snipes.
  • Completely free, no catch.

Want to get something from Amazon but want to wait until price drops a bit?

There are others out there but I use http://camelcamelcamel.com/

camelcamelcamel is a free Amazon price tracker. Get email alerts when prices drop! Look at price history as well.

Hopefully you are joking.

If you ever have a problem with your ooma system you will be very happy that lbmofo is on the forum. His post count is the highest on the board - about 800 posts above the next highest poster. Most of those posts were to answer a user who had a problem. If you don't like people who make posts that are off topic, please be aware that OT means "Off Topic." You are welcome to NOT click the post if you so choose.

So in all fairness, how many thousands of people have you helped in the last few years? :P
