Advantages: Saving Money
Disadvantages: Getting used to saving money!

As the recession continues to bite and the economic indicators are showing that the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better, the majority of us need to take decisive action to curb our spending habits, if we haven't already done so. We ...

Review of Some Lifestyle Choices that can Save you Money

Competitiveness of APR

Product package

Additional Charges

Security and Privacy

Ease of Application

I wish I could say it's a waste of money!

Advantages: Cover for illness, injury and disease.
Disadvantages: A good policy can be expensive, but a cheap policy may be a waste of money.

You've paid for the dog, or the cat, or the rabbit. Then you have to buy a basket or a hutch and all the bedding. After that you have to pay for food and water bowls and the first supply of food. You'll have spent money on a collar and lead if you've bou ...

Review of Member Advice on Choosing Pet Insurance

PET'S GET ILL TOO!

Review of Member Advice on Choosing Pet Insurance

Conservative choice but not a high yield one

Advantages: capital guaranteed, tax free winnings, potential of jackpot wins
Disadvantages: relatively low returns on investment and high level of investment needed

Having chosen a wide number of investments, and left some in a savings account, paying a fairly derisory rate of interest, I moved some of the money into an ING Direct account and put the balance into premium bonds, back in June 2005. Part of the lure of ...

Review of Member Advice on Premium Bonds

Premium Bonds - A winning investment

Advantages: Guaranteed to get your investment back. MAY win a biggie!
Disadvantages: None

I'd never really given serious thought to premium bonds. I though your chances of winning were about as good as the lottery, miniscule, so had just invested monthly in a savings account. When I sold my house to go travelling in October 2004, I looked a ...
