This week, two listeners help Simon score free wine and free petrol using loyalty programmes. Here’s a new Fat Wallet rule: if it gets us free wine, you are automatically the win of the week. No questions asked.
Scenes from last week’s double episode recording. He seems perplexed, but it’s because we just spent an hour talking about RAs and are still an hour away from being done. In the next episode we discuss some useful insights from our survey and Simon tries to get me to write a book while I’m on holiday. . . . #podcast #justonelap #fatwallet #thefatwalletshow #investing #saving #education #retirement #medicalaid
We discuss medical aid and how much to save towards the education of two toddlers. We received a question about the Warren Buffett indicator. I figure out halfway through the discussion that it’s basically the P/E ratio of a country and nearly die of pride. I just love those moments where my brain makes a connection that I didn’t know it was capable of making.
By the way, Craig Gradidge blew my mind this week when he explained a very complicated principle in a way that made it clear as day. This, to me, is the mark of true intelligence.
Jonathan de Freitas found an awesome workaround for price alerts on the If This Then That (IFTTT) service. Check that out here.
Lastly, we read through all of your tips and suggestions in our survey and we spend the episode talking about the things you guys want. We’ve had many requests for show transcripts, for example, to make the site more searchable and help people who are hard of hearing.
We dedicate this episode to the ideas we loved, the suggestions we don’t agree with and our listeners’ wicked sense of humour. Thank you all, one last time, for taking the time to help us serve you better.
Remember to join us IRL on 7 December for our final Power Hour of the year. It is always our favourite event. We can’t wait to hang out with you.
