Discovery Card Interest Rate Hike

Although I try to be pretty credit conscious and pay my outstanding balance every single month, occasionally I do slip up. It happens, and I have to pay the penalty. And that’s how money lenders make their money. But this time Discovery Card have overstepped the mark. Without so much as a hint of a notification, from October to November they’ve hiked their interest rate a whopping 3% from 19.50% to 22.50%. (And somehow this despite me being a “Platinum” account holder, for whatever that’s worth).

Sorry okes, I’ll go back to gym next month – maybe that will help?

Monopoly Money - Free currency from Hasbro
Monopoly Money - Free currency from Hasbro

Zimbabwe Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono should quit worrying about his country’s cash shortages – there’s a simple solution:

All he has to do is switch the official currency to Monopoly money, because Hasbro lets you print out your own Monopoly money. They have PDFs for 1,5,10,20,50,100, and 500 dollar bills on their site. Print, cutout, buy, no bank required.

After all, the Zanu PF knows all about a monopoly.
