Overview

A war for your money is raging and it is time to fight back!

In a book that will forever change how you spend your hard earned money, America’s favorite financial coach, David Bach, shows you how to save thousands of dollars every year by taking on the “corporate machines.” In these times when every dollar counts, big businesses are using dishonest tricks to rip you off, making themselves billions while they keep you living paycheck to paycheck. David Bach knows that until you learn to fight for your money, you will overpay for almost everything you buy. In Fight for Your Money, he gives you the tools to FIGHT BACK and WIN.

Bach shows you how every dollar you spend is really a battle between you and the businesses—and the government—who want to take it as profit. When you know how the system is rigged –the extra points, the hidden fees, the late charges, the unused tax breaks, the escalating rates—you can fight back against the pickpockets and save literally thousands every year—money in your pocket that can help you live your dreams.

Fight for Your Money shows how you are being taken on your cell phone contract, cable bill, car purchase, credit card, life insurance, healthcare, 401(k) plan, airfare, hotel bills, and much more. Bach gives you all the tools you need to fight back, with websites, phone numbers, sample letters and real-life stories of ordinary people who have fought for their money and won.

You’ll learn how to:

Beat the credit card companies at the games they play that cost you thousands annually in interest and fees
Make your bank accounts work for you with higher yields and lower fees
Save thousands by pre-paying college tuition at TODAY’s prices
Raise your credit score and pay thousands less in mortgage interest
Cut your life insurance premiums in half by making one call
Save hundreds on air travel, hotels, and car rentals—just by being an informed consumer
Avoid huge rip-offs like bank-issued gift cards, medical credit cards, 401(k) debit cards, and sneaky renewals of your cell-phone plan.

David Bach knows that when you are being taken financially, you work harder than you have to, for longer than you need to. This book helps you fight for your money, so you can live your life doing what you really want to do.

    Armed With Knowledge Against Sales Tricks

    As this book explains, in vivid detail, not all salespeople are out to trick you. But then again, many are. The ones that aren't still want to make a sale, and they will often hype up the worth of a product you might not need.
    This book clearly states many sales tricks, and what an honest salesperson will tell you, as opposed to a dishonest one. I highly recommend this for anyone who feels they are overspending, whether at the car lot, the hospital, an auto repair shop or essentially, just about anywhere!

    A financial must

    I was very surprised by the things I did not know. I have started following some of the suggestions and they are really helpful. I particularly like that he lists websites and companies that can be helpful. I am going to keep this book and if I run into any of the problems he lists I am reaching for this book first.
