Weekend Reading – Vanguard, warnings, indexing, Aeroplan, saving cash and more

Welcome to my first Weekend Reading edition in June friends…summer is here…almost…not quite technically…but close enough for me.  I hope you had a good week and here’s to an ever better weekend.  Earlier this week I provided a few great ways to save on home and car insurance and Rob Carrick from the Globe and Mail was nice enough to mention my article about living off dividends.

Any big plans for the weekend?

We have “the usual” going on I guess.  Some yardwork, some errands, some socializing planned and a bit of downtime.  Hope you take full advantage of your weekend and see you here again next week when I will (this time) have my latest dividend income update ready.

  1. I’m telling you, you guys are missing out! Devalued, yes. Still worth it, yes!

    Anyway, Aeroplan is a very polarizing subject these days. I’m glad people are quitting the program actually because it means less competition for reward tickets and is more likely to catch Amia’s attention and cause them to rework the program for the better.

    Thanks for the link up!

  2. Both Air Mile and Aeroplan miles have been greatly devalued over the years. I’d rather collect travel rewards or cash rewards via credit cards now.

    Have a good weekend Mark.
