Great Finance Blog Posts - I've Enjoyed This Week: Great Rates in MA, What You're Worth Crystal Ball, Harvest the Equity in Your Home!, Strange Charges On My Statements?

Great Rates in MA
Bank Deals is quickly becoming a daily read for me.  I'm enjoying stopping by and learning about the latest rate comparisons and great rate deals.  The Banking Guy posted on what I thought was an incredible deal and made me want to find a penpal in MA: 6.25% Reward Checking Account at a Massachusetts Bank (North Middlesex Savings).  Not to worry, Banking Guy has categorized lists to look for bank deals in your state, not to mention the google search for your state :-).

What Are You Worth? - Crystal Ball
At Money and Such, they have a great post: Your Career Crystal Ball.  Where Shadox talks about the cool features of payscale.com.  A definite recommended read.  I've used payscale in the past when it's review time to get an idea of where you should be, it's a great tool to have in your arsenal!

Last Change Millionaire
Tricia from Blogging Away Debt, had a book giveaway for The Last Chance Millionaire by Douglass R. Andrew.  As you'll come to learn, I'm a big believer in getting your equity out of your house and putting it to work.  It sounds like Douglass is too.  I'll probably be checking this book out the next time I'm at the bookstore.  Read Tricia's post and you'll see an interesting visual aid that Douglass describes to drive this point home.

Unknown Charges in Your Statement, What To Do?
Patrick at Cash Money Life had a post that caught my eye immediately as I saw the title: What To Do When You Have an Unknown Charge in Your Statement.  He also had a link to another of his posts about a scam that folks are randomly choosing checking account numbers to send through ACH transactions (this is a must read scam to be aware of).  Good info, and I hope my strange transactions turn out to be as benign as Patrick's were :-).
