Free Money Finance offers some tips for negotiating a higher salary.
AllThingsFinancial writes about Deal or No Deal, a television show I partially saw last night for the first time. It’s fascinating the risk people take with a small chance of a large payoff. Being egged on by the audience probably factors highly in the contestant’s decision to take the risky option.
Five Cent Nickel warns us not to change our cars’ oil too frequently. People have written in their oil-changing habits in the comments.
Blueprint for Financial Prosperity is taking a look at budgets for a number of films. Popular actors get a pretty hefty portion of a movie’s total budget.

MillionDollarGoal takes a look at capital gains tax rates and offers a primer for the uninitiated.
The MoneyBlogNetwork is sponsoring its second giveaway: Smart and Simple Financial Strategies for Busy People by Jane Bryant Quinn. I reviewed the book here. To enter the giveaway, sign up for the MoneyBlogNetwork newsletter. If you’re already a recipient, you’re already enrolled in the giveaway.
