Five Ways To Make Money $$


 Source article: The Penny Hoarder


Five Ways To Make Money $$


 

1. Stop Overpaying at Amazon

Wouldn’t it be nice if you got an alert when you’re shopping online at Amazon or Target and are about to overpay?

That’s exactly what this free service does. 

Just add it to your browser for free, and before you check out, it’ll check other websites, including Walmart, eBay and others to see if your item is available for cheaper. Plus, you can get coupon codes, set up price-drop alerts and even see the item’s price history.

Let’s say you’re shopping for a new TV, and you assume you’ve found the best price. Here’s when you’ll get a pop up letting you know if that exact TV is available elsewhere for cheaper. If there are any available coupon codes, they’ll also automatically be applied to your order.

In the last year, this has saved people $160 million.

You can get started in just a few clicks to see if you’re overpaying online.

2. Cancel Your Car Insurance

Did you know you can save some serious money just by switching car insurance companies?

Its true — rates are at historic lows, and you could be paying way less for the same coverage. All you need to do is look for it.

But don’t waste your time hopping around to different insurance companies. Use a website called EverQuote to see all your options at once.

EverQuote is the largest online marketplace for insurance in the US, so you’ll get the top options from more than 175 different carriers handed right to you.

Take a couple of minutes to answer some questions about yourself and your driving record. With this information, EverQuote will be able to give you the top recommendations for car insurance. In just a few minutes, you could save up to $610 a year.

3. Get a Free $225 in Cash Every Month

If we told you you could get free money just for watching videos on your computer, you’d probably laugh.It’s too good to be true, right? But we’re serious.

A website called InboxDollars will pay you to watch short video clips online. One minute you might watch someone bake brownies and the next you might get the latest updates on Kardashian drama.

All you have to do is choose which videos you want to watch and answer a few quick questions about them afterward. Brands pay InboxDollars to get these videos in front of viewers, and it passes a cut onto you.

InboxDollars won’t make you rich, but it’s possible to get up to $225 per month watching these videos. It’s already paid its users more than $56 million.

It takes about one minute to sign up, and you’ll immediately earn a $5 bonus to get you started.

4. Ask This Website to Pay Your Credit Card Bills This Month

No, like… the whole bill. All of it.

While you’re stressing out over your debt, your credit card company is getting rich off those insane interest rates. But a website called Fiona could help you pay off that bill as soon as tomorrow.

Here’s how it works: Fiona can match you with a low-interest loan you can use to pay off every credit card balance you have. The benefit? You’re left with just one bill to pay every month, and because the interest rate is so much lower, you can get out of debt so much faster. Plus, no credit card payment this month.

Fiona can help you borrow up to $250,000 (no collateral needed) with fixed rates starting at 2.49%.

Fiona won’t make you stand in line or call a bank. And if you’re worried you won’t qualify, it’s free to check online. It takes just two minutes, and it could save you thousands of dollars. Totally worth it.

All that credit card debt — and the anxiety that comes with it — could be gone by tomorrow.

5. Give Your Family $1M

This is one of those occasions when spending a little bit of money each month can pay off later.

Have you thought about how your family would manage without your income after you’re gone? How will they pay the bills? Send the kids through school? Now’s a good time to start planning for the future by looking into a term life insurance policy.

A company called Insure.com can help you get a policy for as little as $10 a month — and in just two minutes. 

Maybe you’ve considered it before, but it felt like an expensive hassle — or like something you only need to do when you’re older. But the truth is, even if you’re young and healthy, it’s often smart to lock in a cheaper policy now. Rates tend to go up as you age.

Insure.com will show you quotes from different companies so you can compare and find the right policy for you. You never have to leave the house or take a medical exam. You don’t even have to speak to a human if you don’t want to.

Take two minutes to answer a few quick questions to make sure you protect the ones you love.

Electric Vehicle EV Market Is Impossible To Forecast

Electric Vehicle Market Is Impossible To Forecast - Currently

By: Michael D Tobin

April 18, 2022

Here is my blog and audio podcast regarding EV's and combustible engine vehicles with comparisons, with reference links to follow. After years of gathering references I finally condensed them. Audio podcast, The Lookout Guy on Spreaker , link: Electric Vehicle Market Is Impossible To Forecast - Currently And here's my Podcast, The Lookout Guy on AnchorFM, link: Electric Vehicle Market Is Impossible To Forecast - Currently

How serious are the EV automakers? But how long will "the first EV boon" last? "The first EV boon," is a term I read recently in two recent articles which the EV boon wasn't even remotely the subject of one of the articles, but part of the subject of another. I will share one of those below.

I've done quite a bit of reading on the EV subject these past at least 7 years, and no article has mentioned a hint of EV's going away, except there was one article mentioning Toyota will be releasing hydrogen-powered vehicles by 2025. And I don't want EV's to go away, because they have obvious desirability based on needs of the owner. But there is a projected market share of EV's-to-combustible, though marketing is focusing on allowing the masses to believe EV's are "taking over", as so many people keep repeating over and over and over. But I can't seem to find the article that mentions specifically, the market share goal, without all the vague terms we have to get through from media and marketing. And yes, there are many sadly mistaken groups who want gas, coal and oil to go away, but some learn reality sooner than others and some learn later. Reality is as sure as an apple falling from a tree. It will definitely hit the ground. Mark my words. In your lifetime, even if you are 1 year old and have some fabulous ability to read, coal, gas and oil are not going away.

I can go on and on about battery waste, carbon-neutral, skyrocketing water and electricity costs, etc... but I'll do my best to keep this blog enjoyable and sensible. But just one more thing here before continuing; as combustible engine ownership decreases, electricity prices will increase. As weather gets hotter, water prices increase. As oil demand decreases, oil prices (PPB) decreases.

Vehicle ownership costs are designed to be at a certain level, so don't think buying an EV will put your overall costs lower than the current market of combustible engine ownership. The only benefits of owning an EV over internal combustion is FOMO and artificial intelligence conveniences. Otherwise overall monetary costs will hover plus and minus depending on maintenance and insurance costs. EV's are higher insured and gas is higher than electric. And don't forget that there's this real drag of a challenge in which EV mfg's are trying to match miles per charge to that of internal combustion vehicle's miles per tank, of around 350 miles. EV's are roughly 250 miles per charge. For us survivalists, that's not good.

OH!!! And don't forget Texas. What year was that that they had a big freeze and their electricity rates skyrocketed and people died freezing? Oh it was 2021...hmmm...a year ago. Who was charging their vehicles? And I'm a Californian, so far. Nearly all my life. I'm a LIFER here. Born in Hawaii and been here since 1 year old. My Mom's family are all San Diegan's and that's a huge family. I guess I'm a San Diego hick. And BTW, we should all know about fires, air conditioning and rolling blackouts. What a thorn-in-the-electric grid, right?

(The winter storm and outages occurred during the winter 2021 COVID-19 wave in Texas. A total of 6,484 Texans died during the seven-day period, the eighth-deadliest week during the pandemic, according to state health department data.Texas has increased the number of deaths attributed to the devastating February 2021 winter storm to 246. That's up 36 deaths from the earlier total of 210. Official death toll from Texas February 2021 winter storm climbs to 246 _


Just look at this article from, Bankrate from Feb 7, 2022, just over 2 months ago from the time I am writing: It may be difficult to avoid driving an electric car in 2022

Don't let the title fool you though. Like most articles, you have to read them and you'll often find there are hidden aspects if not for the only reason, that the author can have proof that, "they told you so," but it may have been in the second half of the 3rd sentence of the 2nd to last paragraph of a 15 paragraph article; BUT THEY DID TELL YOU SO. Here is an I-told-you-so-section in the article. But is this all they have? Future price decreases and Federal tax credits? Sounds more like, promises-promises-promises, to me. And remember what Toyota is planning that somehow made it to a national publication, that I will have below; HYDROGEN. Yeah, just wait. And remember that other excuses like inflation, tax credits and HOPEFUL cost decreases come and go, and we know what happens with promises. Here's from the article: "...Over the average 200,000 mile lifespan of their vehicle, the total cost of a gas-powered car would be $94,540, while a similar EV would cost $90,160, according to CNBC.

In addition, the sticker price of EVs is getting lower thanks to federal tax credits that can knock as much as $7,500 off the price of your vehicle. Additionally, EVs are expected to get even cheaper in the coming years thanks to battery and technology improvements. ..."

Moving on, I have a list of articles which mention terms like, "EV boom, or boon." We don't have time for dictionaries, right? I'm 58 and I do remember spelling from grade school and Junior college. It's 'boon." But bombfire still sounds better than bonfire though, and I guess the same goes for BOOM! (Batman). Wait that's POWW!.

Sorry, but I merely decided to give you a list of articles and titles, and I will continue with a unique statement from each article, and you may keep this for reference. Because I know the only people reading are those who actually do your own research.

Remember the word, 'BOON?" Also, when words like, 'transition', 'projected', 'forecast', etc... are used, realize articles are by writers, and not experts. Those words are merely for 'lack of better words or terms' as people say in conversation.

In college we learned the terms, 'extrapolate and interpolate.' The first is taking current trends and coming up with a future number based on current rate of information growing. The 2nd is taking information that has a definite goal and you may come up with a future number that has an end result, so long as something unforseen doesn't happen between point A and point B.

1. ( "...The electric vehicle industry is gearing up for a boom. Although many EV stocks have plateaued recently, there's no doubt they are the future of domestic travel. Therefore, investors are looking to the longer term. In this EV earnings season specifically, investors are keeping tabs on delivery projections. ..." from CISION PR Newswire April 13, 2022  How Lithium Shortages Could Sink the EV Transition  )

2. (Did I mention Hydrogen and Toyota yet? I just struck gold! This is the article where I saw the term used, "...first battery EV boon"... And they spelled the word correctly. How serious are the EV automakers? But how long will "the first EV boon" last? " From Nov 15, 2021 Reuters: Nov 15, 2021 — The stakes are high. "If the adoption of carbon-free fuels happens quickly, that could bring the first battery EV boom to an end," From the article: "..."The enemy is carbon, not internal combustion engines. We shouldn't just focus on one technology but make use of the technologies we already possess," Toyoda said at the track. "Carbon neutrality is not about one having a single choice, but about keeping options open." ... At the gathering in Glasgow, six major carmakers, including General Motors (GM.N), Ford Motor (F.N), Sweden's Volvo (VOLVb.ST) and Daimler AG's (DAIGn.DE) Mercedes-Benz signed a declaration to phase out fossil-fuel cars by 2040.

Toyota declined to join that group, arguing that much of the world is not ready for a shift to EVs. Another notable absence was Germany's Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE)"We don't want to be seen as an EV maker, but as a carbon-neutral company," Toyota Vice Chairman Shigeru Hayakawa told Reuters in an interview. ..." )

3. (Okay, Here is that article, from SIEMENS July 28, 2017, with a definite market percentage of EV's-to-combustible. It is a 5 year old article, but worth saving for reference. And if you, the reader have a current similar reference, be it an article or a study, please let me know:

 "... A forecast with caveats

The International Energy Agency (IEA), which represents 29 oil-importing industrial countries, produces bellwether forecasts that foresee electric cars phasing in slowly. Its baseline projection envisions 150 million electric vehicles on the world’s roads by 2030, or about 10 percent of all passenger vehicles at that point. In comparison, only two million electric vehicles are operating today – 0.2 percent of the 1.2 billion on the road. ..."  How electric vehicles could take a bite out of the oil market )

But The People Who Know Their God, and INDIE Update From Russia's, An Vedi

 

But The People Who Know Their God, and INDIE Update From Russia's, An Vedi

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, 10 and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11 For this reason God will send them a powerful delusion so that they believe the lie, 12 in order that judgment may come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness.
Daniel 11:32-35 32 With flattery he will corrupt those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him. 33 Those with insight will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by sword or flame, or be captured or plundered. 34 Now when they fall, they will be granted a little help, but many will join them insincerely. 35 Some of the wise will fall, so that they may be refined, purified, and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time. (Who is, "HE", in Daniel 11:32? "He", is, the prophesied Anti-Christ False messiah, with a lower case 'm'.)
Amos 8:11,12 11 Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord GOD, when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.
12 People will stagger from sea to sea and roam from north to east, seeking the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. (Today in the 21st century, it seems there is a famine of LISTENING to the Word of the Lord. It will behoove us all to seek the Lord while He still may be found.)
For your sake, speak out loud and say, "If you exist, as God, who created the universe and all that exists, show me this Jesus, who it is claimed that He is your Son, who is said to be my Savior, and who will save me from eternity in hell, and give me eternity with you, God, in Heaven." Read the Old Testament and New Testament. And take it from there.

Translation of the opening speech by, An Vedi: "I started composing this work in 2020, when the whole world celebrated the 75th anniversary of the victory over the Nazis. The Sonata is dedicated to the memory of dead soldiers. The first movement is a picture of the field after the battle. The second movement is memories and a prediction of a brighter future. The third movement - Lamento - is a cry for the dead soldiers, as well as a prayer. The fourth movement is called "The End of a War"."
