Jenny I've Got Your Number 867-5309

September 1st, 2013 at 01:52 am

This is the funniest and real retail coupon savings hack I've read from Lifehacker. For those club savings offered by retail loyalty cards linked to a phone number, or even when corporate retail cashiers ask you for your phone number, give them the area code you're currently shopping in and eight six seven five three oh ni-yee-ine...

Another little hack, although I suspect this is limited to people in Buffalo, Detroit, Bellingham, and Escondido/San Juan Capistrano/San Diego, Corpus Christi...
ask the retail staff if they accept "the colourful currency." I've now had "the colourful currency" accepted south (a mile, 1.6 km) from where I live.

I've been thinking of what to do next month. So many ways I could improve myself: I may purge -- I could get a lot done. I have to design my kid's after-school schedule. Maybe one challenge a day, then build up. One thing he wants is Tim Horton International stock. He has some stock already in a no-brainer company, but this one I want him to study. I want him to learn how to find an annual report, and to read one. Then I'll teach him what ratios are worth looking at, and why. I'll show him some calculations to determine the future value of this stock, and appropriate buy points. This sounds heady, but when it comes to money my child is precociously sharp.

We're not moving north. My spouse is working on his resume for a FT job at the company for which he presently contracts (he used to be a FTE). He'd have to commute in every day. We'd either stay put, or move a mile north, or (gulp) southeast (12 mi SE: I have no basis for comparison with any other state of the union, and 90+% of them are southeast of us, so don't think I mean your habitat).

My credit union has cut our savings account interest rate down to 4%. I may toss some money into my son's account to get some of that six percent action.

    ha ha ha ha ha ha! 867-5309 certainly is an easy to remember number if you lived through that era.

    And especially if that was your name Smile I can't tell you how many times I was asked if that was my number. LOL

    ...'cause how many Tommy Tutone fans are there? It makes an interesting key pad pattern too.

    My grandfather taught me about stocks, especially dividend stocks, and I followed them at about your son's age also. You can judge for yourself whether it affected me any.

    Fave YouTube comment: "I used 213 867 5309 for a discounted deal at Walgreen's."

    This is what I'm gonna do: try that number and see where the discounts are. I encourage everyone who reads this to give it a try.
