If you love getting a good deal and have a partner that shares your passion, then you probably already know that you can double your pleasure by both using the same coupon (one per person, right?) or signing up for bonuses separately, and then getting double the money!
Alas, I, who truly loves wringing money out of companies, has a wife who hates this stuff. She works hard and controls her spending well, but is the type of person who chooses which credit card to carry based on how cute it looks. The words ‘S&P 500′ mean nothing to her. There could be a $1,000 bank bonus and she wouldn’t care. I can’t even sign her up for offers myself anymore, since she really hates having to deal with customer service reps if something goes wrong. The last thing she signed up for was the $100 gift card from Citi, and only after I did it first (and convinced her she could spend it on cute stuff). But I still love her =) So – does your better half care about money as much as you?
