If you’re planning on gift-giving this holiday season we know one thing for sure: you don’t want to waste your money on expensive items that your family and friends won’t like. If you’re hoping to score some great deals to either save money or find that perfect item, today’s show is for you. Regina Conway of Slickdeals.net joins us to share the exact places where you can find the best deals this holiday season AND also those items you should be sure to avoid. We’ll talk fashion, beauty products, toys, garage and outdoors, kitchen and housewares, and even pets on today’s show.
Plus, if you’re an investor, the game just might be changing. In our headline segment, we’ll share news about three big firms who just received the green light to hide holdings inside their ETFs. What does that mean? We’ll share why that may be a big win for active managers, and maybe also for you. Plus we’ll cover a second piece from MarketWatch about shopping for yourself. People already spend surprising amounts of cash on themselves each holiday season, but by doing it the right way, you’ll be further ahead by maybe partaking in a little selfish gift-giving yourself.
Later, we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to Julien, who has been reading about income taxes going on. He’d like to know if there’s any truth to that claim, and if so, how should he be balancing contributions between his Roth and Traditional 401ks?
Of course, we’ll save some time for Doug’s trivia. It’s the start of our Thanksgiving week extravaganza of shows, and we can’t wait for you to hear it, so jump in!
