Episode 33: When Is A Sale Not Really A Sale? And Other Truths You Need This Shopping Season

Before you start shopping this holiday season, this episode is full of tips and tricks you need. We talk to consumer psychologist Kit Yarrow about the phenomenon called “bargain brain” (if your pulse gets racing at a sale, you have it), the allure (and danger) of the outlet mall and how 50% off may actually be the real price. Plus, data from Foursquare on the best times for you to shop for pretty much everything on your list. Then, Kelly and I talk about how to safely close credit cards you’re not using and weigh investing vs. paying off student debt with your extra cash. Please let us know what you think by leaving a review. Thanks!
