    Great deal, great book. Pitty it's SB but I'll give them another chance to get it right…

  •  

    I bought it last deal but never got a chance to read it!

  •  

    Anyone read this and the families edition - is it worth having both, are they distinct enough from each other?

    • +5 votes

      I purchased both, I would say it is worth it. Reason is:
      - Th original one is focusing on personal finance, how you manage your finance, decrease your debt and save deposit for a home, super.
      - The family one has some ideas overlap to the original one, but there are some good ideas about teaching your kids like saving, never have credit card, reward them to find a good deal, help them to have part time job when studying.

      I think as a parent, I can extract a little bit of idea and apply to my kids. :)

      •  

        Original one: why save a deposit for a home in this market?
        Isn't renting a better option? Am I missing the bigger picture?

        •  

          You are missing the long term picture. 😀

        •  

          You never know mate, it is always better to save now, then when the chance come you don't have to regret you should have saved earlier. For example, if property prices drop next year, you have some saving toward deposit more than now.

            @codinghelloworld: No cc is pretty naive no? Smart consumer use cc to better manage their cash flow while being rewarded for everyday spending.. Also help build good credit rating for smart consumer by not raking up debt. I would definitely recommend cc to my kids asap. Kogan started his empire using cc cash advance remember?

        reward them to find a good deal

        So, sign your kids up to ozbargain?

          Nah, in the book, the author states that:
          - show your electric bill to your kids, challenge them to find other provider which can offer cheaper rate, then your kid will have the balance difference.

          To me it come to 3 points:
          - Help your kids to do research and find the other product on the market.
          - Help your kids to negotiate and phone to the provider, challenge the provider to give your kid a better rate.
          - Improve kid's confidence when talking with stranger etc.

    FYI it is $11.38 after cashback. Cashback value (in my email) is $9.52. Not sure how they get that. I think the cashback is on the pre-GST value which would be 50% of $19 = $9.50. So I guess you get a bonus $0.02.

      Nope, additional cash backs will be cancelled after the promo. They won't actually land that is.

        Right. So basically like I can only redeem it once and that's it.

      I'd be curious if ING is still recommended for the savings accounts, considering the cut the interest rates took this financial year. (though not sure when the 2019 version came out?)

        Around Oct/Nov 2018 it went to the presses

        ING is still recommended in the 2019 version lol

    Your council library will probably have this in ebook form for free.

      I just signed up for 1 month free audible and got the eBook for free. You get to keep the eBook even after your free trial ends.

        Does both version (normal and family) available for free with your method?

        •  

          I’m not 100% sure. I only saw the normal (2019 updated) version, but I wasn’t looking for the family version.

      You're right, it is "uber basic stuff" but with people like you calling it out for being "uncool", many of your peers will continue to lack "uber basic knowledge".

    i have completed the audiobook. like many motivational books out there it's mostly common sense. especially when you are a migrant from Asia it's pretty much what you been taught all along

    if you are ozbargin regular you already possess the conscious mindset to save. then what scott took it further is to pay off your home then invest in shares. I find it is the complete opposite to what other investment books suggest to borrow money from bank and level 5 times in property.

      Save money? This is where people come to inflict themselves with social anxiety and spend money on products they don't need.

    Cheers OP, grabbed a copy! $10 after cashback for this book is a good price

    This book is primarily geared towards those with debt, who have trouble saving, or haven't done their own research on the best bank and home loan rates. It's great if that's what you need. But don't expect anything too advanced. It's not really for those who already have a handle on their finances and want to invest or majorly grow their savings.

    •  

      It's also geared towards anyone who hasn't really considered a financial plan, or what their retirement is going to look like, or have any kind of clue why Super matters, why they should be contributing to Super, why they should want to buy property.

    Is it worth buying this book, or would a borrow from the library be better? Does anyone who owns the book actually pick it up for a re-read of certain parts or the totality of it?

    Already spent about $30 on book depository under this deal and bookshelves are almost bursting, so want to know if it's really worth having a copy at home.

      I borrowed it as his writing style i find too long winded. Just copied the points that were relevant to me.

      Also he says he will be updating it every year so the info may become out of date anyway.

      •  

        Ah, thanks. Sounds like a textbook kinda read.

        Ended up borrowing the e-audio.

    $19 on Amazon AU (free shipping with Prime), but no Book Depository cashback deal.
