This week I did a book review on Mike Piper’s excellent intro to investing book – Investing Made Simple – I had suggested this would be a good stocking stuffer idea since most of the 4P readership seem to already have pretty good investment knowledge. The links that were on that post were for Amazon.com – I didn’t realize until later that the book is also available on Amazon.ca which of course is better for Canadians. So if you had clicked on the links and then gave up in disgust after realizing you were on Amazon.com then you can go back and try again if you wish.
ING $25 referral bonus
A while ago I wrote about the ING $25 referral bonus code a while back and wanted to mention it again. Each customer only gets 50 referrals and they are going fast. Last time I checked there were only…ummm…50 referrals left on my account. So act quickly because they are going fast! :) The code is 33089336S1.
