Praised for its practicality and sage advice, this book will show you how to save hundred, even thousands of dollars every year. It reveals:- How a $120,000 home or condo can cost more than double the purchase price--and how to stop that from happening- How to shop around for credit cards that charge reasonable interest and minimal annual fees- How to reduce of eliminiate ATM charges and other fees you pay for access to your own money- How to negotiate better loans for your home, car business and other needs- New information on: mortgages, small-business loans, electronic banking, credit and debit card "offers".
Most of things are probably nothing new now.
Great Book!
My favorite, is the fact that the banks invented ATM and debit
cards so that you would accidently overdraw your account. The banks accutually love it when you do that. They get to charge
you for this little error.
Actual cost of overdraft of a check:
Computer Cost: 0.25
Employee's Processing cost: 0.50
Mailing cost of OD notice: 0.32 (not current rate)
Total 1.07
Now is that what they charge you no, they make a tidy profit
about $24.00 if the charge was $25.
He tells you ways to find the best mortgage, how to find an alternative checking account, and better ways to save that just letting the bank hold it for you.
He states how to negotiate with the bank IF you choose to get a loan there. He tells you how points on a loan are like addiditional dealer profit that car dealers charge you for doing nothing!
He also says how most banks' safety deposits can be jimmed with a screw driver and other reasons not to use them.
He gives a few phone numbers on where to purchase mail order checks at half of what the bank charges.
He also gives ways to find out if your bank is safe. But what about the FDIC. He gives reasons why that little FDIC sign at the bank should not be helping you to sleep at night.
IT is a must read for anyone that uses a bank!
There is so much more in the book, this is just the tip of the
iceberg!
Mr. Mrkvicka does a wonderful job of elucidating the mechanics of banking. He writes in a clear style that is very easy for the "layman" to understand. The information is topical and meaningful for consumers. This book should be read by anyone dealing with banks: it gives all of us very important insight we can use in our daily financial lives.
What a informative book. Where do I click to give a 6 stars rating? I have a limited knowledge of the banking world. I will certainly use the information for my first home purchase. I am so happy he wrote a book like this. He should receive a medal from Consumers' Union.
