Stop Annoying Phone Solicitations

Just a reminder that yu can register your smart phone as well as your land line (if you still have a land line) on the National Do Not Call registry.

There are 2 ways to do this:

1.) Visit donotcall.gov

2/) Call 888-382-1222

Keep in mind that it takes 31 days from the day you register for your registration to become effective and that charities and political groups are still legally allowed to contact you.

Wheel Savings

Looking to get a new car?

Believe it or not, the smartest move might be to buy used!

Why? Because of leasing. So many American now lease their cars. Most of those leases are up in 3 years. Plus, leases penalize drivers who go over 10,000 miles a year. The result is an abundance of late model cars with relatively low mileage.

The vehicle information website Edmunds.com estimates that used car prices for cars 3 years old or newer are actually coming down! You’ll find the best deals on subcompact, compact and mid-size cars. In addition, many car dealers now offer extended warranties, some up to 100,000 miles.

If you’re in the market for wheels, remember, you’re in the driver’s seat!

Extended Warranties: Yes or No?

The experts say most extended warranties aren’t worth the money. Chances are good that if anything is wrong with the item, it’ll break down during the original warranty period. If it doesn’t depreciation on the item may make replacement a wiser choice than the cost of the extended warranty.

One exception: if you have a Smartphone and are prone to breaking or losing it.

Keeping Your Smartphone & Tablet Safe

Many smartphones and tablets are preset to find and join networks automatically. This may seem like a good idea as it could save you on data fees, but be careful.

Many public networks are unsecure and can easily be breached by hackers.

You can solve this problem in two ways.

First, turn off the option on your device(s) to automatically connect to networks and turn on the option to ask you first. Second, simply make sure your phone or tablet is off when you’re not using it. Hackers can’t access a device if it’s off the grid.
