Does Splitting Your Monthly Payment into Two Save, And If So, How Much?

A website I came across recommended paying half your minimum payment on a credit card every two weeks (instead of one monthly payment) in order to reduce your average daily balance. Does this work, and what kind of savings would this yield? [more inside]

Lesson Learned: check your credit report often

Last year I went on a hardship repayment plan with my Bank of America visa. No problem...until I see my credit report!!! They are now saying I should have known better, and there is nothing they can do. Do I have legal recourse to force them to revise my credit rating? [more inside]

How to practice safe PayPal?

I'm about to purchase a $1500 camera from a fellow I met through an online photography forum. I'll be paying via PayPal (funded by my American Express). I've no reason to think the seller untrustworthy, but what can I do to protect myself just in case?

Paying a CC Balance with another CC (w/o Transferring)

I bought an engagement ring with the store CC and was given 6 months no interest. Well that six months is almost up, and I'd love to be able to get my CC's 1% cash-back. Problem is, if I transfer the money to my CC, I don't get the 1% back. I have the money and can pay it off, but 1% is a significant amount and I'd like to finagle that 1% into my wallet if at all possible. Is there anything I can do? Thanks for the help, SEINFELD

I'd like to make a presidential campaign contribution, but I want to avoid being put on any kind of list.

I'd like to make a presidential campaign contribution, but I want to avoid being put on any kind of list. Should I mail cash? I'm afraid to use a check or credit card. It will be under $200, the threshold above which the law requires the campaign to report my info. I guess I could do a money order. But are completely anonymous donations okay? If so, what's to stop someone from making 1,000 different anonymous donations of $150, and skirting the $200 law?

Are there any international virtual currencies?

There's Paypal, eGold, amazon bucks et al. Is there a "net-cash" system out there that people from all over the world - from Aruba to Brazil to Zimbabwe - can use?
