Found any bargains lately?

November 12th, 2009 at 02:28 pm

The economy sucks, no doubt. But there are certainly many positives and blessings amongst all the misery. If you are still gainfully employed or not, there are tons of bargains and specials everywhere. Now is the time to get your finances in order, but also to take advantage of all those dog-gone bargains out there.

Restaurants
If you love eating out but money has been short lately, food at restaurants have been almost dirt cheap. There are coupons galore. Coupons for buy one get one free, lunches for $4.99, fine dining dinner entrees for less than $10.00, and kids eating free on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Vacation
My brother and his wife just purchased a 4-day cruise on Carnival for $165 each. Resorts are having specials where you can get a room for two-nights for $159. The rooms were regularly $265 a night.

Cars
Car dealers are really trying hard to bring people in. Who ever heard of purchasing a car with interest rates as low as 2%? Or if you lose your job the dealer will make your payments for 6-months. Unbelievable car prices and unbelievable deals!

Homes
If you ever wanted to own a home, now is the time. Interest rates are at an all time low. Home prices have dropped nationally around 20%. Homes that would have cost $300,000 just two years ago now can be purchased in some areas for $199,000 or lower. Plus, if you are a first time home owner (haven't owned a home in the last 3-years based on Government standards), you can get an $8,000 refund credit on your taxes.

There are bargains everywhere. What bargains have you found in this economy?

    Home tax credits have been extended. The new credit amount is $6500 and applies to current homeowners.

    I've definitely noticed the restaurant discounts! I also get satellite radio service for next to nothing and I do a lot of catalina shopping at my local supermarket. I've MADE money grocery shopping over the past week. Smile

    We are overseas at the moment, but it is good to see that there are some leads for good savings available in the States - all we read about on the news is doom and gloom (or shiny happy stories about the recovery, which have little insurance of being based in reality...). Here's hoping that people can take wise advantage of these deals and save some money!
