Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

This is just a quick note to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a joyful holiday season. I would like to thank all of you for your support throughout the year. I’ll be spending today hosting Christmas dinner for family and friends. Fortunately, my brother from South Florida is helping me.

I just have one small banking tip that’s holiday related. Over the Thanksgiving Day weekend I told my brother about those PenFed CDs. The deal interested him so he joined PenFed, his first credit union, and he purchased the 5-year CD online. I forgot to tell him he could have avoided joining the military association since I was already a PenFed member. Oh well, the association cost is small. So if you mention the PenFed deal (or any credit union deal) to immediate family members, don’t forget to let them know they can join via your family bond.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All!

Ken, sounds like you owe your bro about $20 :-)

Seriously though, thank you so much for this great site! You've helped a whole lot of people.

No way Santa will be bringing you coal this year.

Thank you very much for all your hard work and generosity, Ken.  I've learned so much from you and your blog has guided me toward lots of good decision making, which I've also passed on to my grown sons.  Hope you and your family have a delicious and fun Christmas!

Ken thank you for everything. I don't know of a site that has helped anyone as much as yours has. I continue to tell everyone about this site I start with reward checking accounts because that catches their attention.

I am 88 yrs. young (89 on Jan.the 2nd) and owe some of my financial independence to your advice and tips.  I finally gave in a few yrs. ago and started opening out of town CD's.  Good thing, cause the local brick and mortars were paying nothing, still the case.  Thank you again.  You have really helped me.

Happy Holidays, Ken!  We are all so grateful for your efforts over the years.  You have changed lives.  

My 7-year, 6.25% APY PenFed certificate matures next month.  Thank goodness I learned about this deal from you--it saved me from putting that money into mutual funds that I likely would have sold in panic as the market bottomed in 2008-2009.  Big thanks to you for getting me through that period unscathed.  Best wishes for a great 2014, Ken.

Happy New Year to Ken and to everyone who posts on this most valuable website.  Ken, thank you for all your hard work; you save us so much time and effort.  Let's hope the new year brings higher interest rates for all of us savers, who have borne the brunt of the policies of the Federal Reserve for the last 5 or so years!
