April Fools Recap

This year, my own April Fool’s offering was a little weak, but there were some really good ones out there that I enjoyed.

Number one favorite had to be Lazy Man’s Budgeting for a Tank post, accented by the fact that you can actually buy a tank through Amazon! (Also, I like how it was categorized under Smart Purchases)

JD didn’t try to dupe us, like Flexo did with his I Quit! Festival of Frugality hosting, but he did share an entertaining story about how he turned $500 into $7 in only a few years!

Oh, did you hear? Cap won the lottery.

Finally, Wise Bread had a clever, though not original, post about Apple’s new branding strategy and loyalty discount. It would’ve been funnier if people were actually being branded, rather than tattoo’d. 🙂

Anyone else see any good April Fools jokes by pfbloggers?


5% Cashback on Gambling Winnings Credit Card

I used to play a lot of blackjack and poker online back in college, before the Port Security Bill in 2006 made it illegal for banks to conduct business with known casino sites, and made some decent cash too. Back then, and even today, casinos would give you 100% matching bonuses on your deposit as long as you put into play six times the bonus amount (nowadays it’s like 20 times). I would put in a hundred bucks, get a hundred bucks, put into play six hundred bucks and walk away with, on average, two or three hundred dollars of profit. I had a spreadsheet and everything, if I only I also had the First Ausus Chance Card from First Ausus Bank, a bank headquartered in Bermuda.
