By: Nadeem_Walayat

The credit card issuers such as Capital One have been busy pulling the rug from under their most loyal customers where even a 10+ year relationship means nothing for the banks when it comes to continuing to offer cashback rewards, as customers will have been receiving a whole host of excuses as to why their cashback rewards are ending such as blaming the European Union proposed ruling on capping interchange fees on credit cards to 0.3% from a typical range of 0.6% to 0.8% currently charged on each transaction.

By: MoneyMetals

Guy Christopher writes: There's a new front opening up in the war on your wealth. If you haven't heard yet of the “bail-in,” you will. Even if you have, you need to know the latest…

Best Cash ISA 2015/16, Instant and Fixed Savings Interest Rates, New Flexible Withdrawal / Deposit Rule / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Good news, its a new tax year which means savers can deposit upto £15,240 into a tax free cash ISA savings account. Now for the bad news, the banking syndicate cash ISA rates remain at abysmally poor levels, despite some demand being siphoned off into the Coalition governments election bribe of the 4% paying Pensioner bonds against which no cash ISA can compete, though of course these bonds are only available to the over 65's.

How to Escape the Pensions Squeeze / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

Peter Krauth writes: With mid-generation baby boomers just entering the retirement wave, their ability to stop working is a hot topic that's getting hotter. Study after study questions the ability of public and private pensions to meet the needs of retirees.

Don’t Get Sandbagged: Here’s Where the “New Credit Scorers” Are Watching You / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: In our talks here over the last week or so, we’ve been focusing our attention on so-called “Disruptors” – the catalysts of change that are impacting everything we do.

And one particular point that I made underscores just how wide-ranging these Disruptor-driven changes really are.

As I told you all last week, Disruptors are already changing how we communicate (smartphones), how we date (Match.com, eHarmony), how we mate (Tinder… or so I’ve heard), what we eat (genetically modified and so-called “super foods”), how we work (Monster.com, Jobr), how we get heat, cooling and light (fracking), how we get around (Uber and Tesla), how we get where we’re going (GPS) – and where we stay once we get there (Airbnb).

By: Casey_Research

Those of you in the US know that it’s the least wonderful time of the year: tax time.

Hopefully you haven’t filed your tax return just yet. Maybe you rushed it in because you feel ever so grateful to your government for letting you keep some of your hard-earned cash. Or maybe—like most of us—you wait 'til the very last day out of principle.

Either way, chances are you’re leaving money on the table. We want to show you how to get most of it back.

Wealth Net Worth - Is $1 Million Enough? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Investment_U

Rachel Gearhart writes: Last week we looked at a chart showing how much annual income Americans think they need to be considered rich.

This week, we’re using the same Gallup Poll data to visualize the household net worth required to join the wealthy upper class. (This is, again, according to a group of randomly surveyed individuals.) The median number? $1 million.
