VIP Club Roundup


Word up, peeps! Welcome back to Club Thrifty’s VIP Club Roundup! Thanks for visiting, and be sure to subscribe to our blog before you head out.


We have had an exciting and busy couple of weeks here at Club Thrifty. Holly posted her regular staff post at Get Rich Slowly entitled “Knowing when to be a squeaky wheel,” and it got picked up by Lifehacker. She also did an interview with Average Joe on the “Two Guys and Your Money Podcast.” You can check out the interview by clicking on the image below. Holly’s portion starts at about the 8:30 mark, but we really encourage you to listen to the whole show because it is SUPER!

  2. Hey, thanks for the mention, guys, and glad you enjoyed the post! Ok, I’m green with envy over your trip to the DR, as I sit here writing with -8 degrees weather outside of my window. Rick and I are talking more and more frequently about buying a little place down south once we say “SEEya” to the last of our debt. Enjoy your vacation, knowing that many of us are living vicariously through you while you’re there. :-)
