Revolution Money Referral, Carnivals, FruWiki, and last minute Tax Cut

Refer A Friend using Revolution Money Exchange Today I signed up for Revolution Money Exchange. It’s a pretty cool concept, it’s like Paypal BUT you get to transfer money for free (unlike PayPal’s fees) and you get a $25 bonus for signing up. (through April 15th)

You do have to have a social security number, so it’s not open to Canadians, at least not yet. But maybe it will be someday. To use an internet phrase, my new identity DNS hasn’t yet populated. Or my SSN doesn’t work yet. So I signed up with Micah’s info for now, but using one of my e-mails. Could be very handy for simple transactions…not having to lose 3% or such each time.

If you use this referral button, you get $25 for signing up and I get $10. Good deal all around. No need for commitment, it’s just like Paypal. You sign up and then you use it or don’t use it as you need to. You still get the $25 without even using it once (though you’d have to link a bank account to claim your money).

(A transaction fee applies for check withdrawals ($2.50 per check), check stop payments ($20 per check), paper statements ($5 per statement), ACH returns ($35 per returned ACH), and overdrafts ($35 per overdraft). But you can withdraw electronically for free.)

The carnivals are up and this week I remembered to submit. I need to set up a better reminder system because the weekend always takes me by surprise!

The Carnival of Personal Finance was at MoneyNing this week. My post “What’s wrong with being middle class?” was included. Posts worth a look included:

Then earlier today the Festival of Frugality went up at A Penny Saved. I submitted my post on’s prescription card.

Meg from All About Appearances has released FruWiki a wiki designed to collect frugal tips and advice. If you have some tips to add or are looking for ideas, why not give it a visit?

Also, Tax Cut has been giving out last minute codes to bloggers who are in a hurry to give them away. I don’t have any codes of my own to give, but here are a few giveaways to enter:

Online Tax Cut at Sound Money Matters

At Paid Twice

And at the Bag Lady

Don’t forget you can also file for free if your income was under $54,000 and you can still put money in an IRA for last year.

Make that “Mrs. Micah.”

Oy. Typos.

I sometimes misspell Micah too. At least I haven’t called him “Michael” ever….
