was able to make a car payment today to our account, also add to our savings (although this will go down when we buy the plane ticket) and put some into our ice account as well as our regular bills.

Will update our side bar as most of these bills get done once a month have a couple of pays this month but will add to the ice account until its back to where I want it to be.

    Don't forget, there are some pretty good bank interest rate deals out there now. If you have a decent savings, you might be able to pick up a few extra bucks in interest.

    Unfortunately our banking isnt the same as yours we don't get good interest unless it is put away for 12 months, we don't get rewards or cash back etc...they only takr your money and you get nothing in return!!

    How do you guys make extra money over there then? One game we play here in the states is transferring balances around to get the maximum interest rate & take advantages of sign up bonuses.

    We have nothing like that here James..you can stick in a high interest account which is usually between 2-3% for 12 months and then you can either stick in for another 12 months or not but you dont make a lot of money here in interest...it sucks but only have 4 major banks and a few smaller ones...so no real competition

    Hey M - what do you guys do to make extra money then? There are a bunch of standards here in the US (sell your stuff, do surveys, etc.), but is it different in Australia?

    Sadly most of our banks don't pay a whole lot when it comes to interest. We have learned you can't be loyal to a bank because they really do not reward loyalty. We look for whatever institution is paying decently and move our money around. One thing is it has to be federally insured.
