Episode 2: Spirit Airlines, RyanAir and

Our show opens with Scott and Fricking Fees.

Last week it was bank fees, now the airlines!  Who and what will be next?

Spirit Airlines is now charging $45 for a carry on bag that will be placed in the overhead compartment.  How dare they! If you are displeased or outraged about this fee, please feel free to call Spirit Air - CEO Ben Baldanza 954-447-7965, or email him at:

RyanAir starts charging for use of the lavatory. This is so they can take out 2 out of 3 restrooms and add 6 extra seats. If you are really interested in calling the CEO to complain, Michael O'Leary can be reached
(this is an international number and you will need to check the access code from your phone company) by calling:  +35312480856. Tell Michael that you will NOT put up with his fee. It should be noted that RyanAir doesn't not have operations within the United States nor to or from.

What kind of fees will they dream up next?

Episode 1 Aftercast: Extended Discussion about Fees and Deals

After each main episode we will have an aftercast featuring us shooting the breeze about these topics, unedited, and fun!

In this aftercast, we discuss, in a relaxed way, the points made in our podcast on fees and deals and more. We laugh about Wells Fargo and how they charge you to pay your bill, those click through participation required "not so real deals". We poke fun at dial up services and having a home phone vs not having one. Our discussions lead back to planning ahead and how to use that for saving money.

Please see our facebook Fees And Deals page for Elaine's savings on purchasing her patio set as mentioned within this aftercast.

Episode 1: Wells Fargo Mortgage Fee and NOT SO REAL Laptop Offers

In this episode I really let Wells Fargo have it for whomping it's mortgage customers with a stupid fricking $20 fee if they call in to pay their mortgage.  Paying your bill should be FREE.

Then, Elaine exposes those NOT so real "Laptop Offers" on the internet.  Read the fine print: "Participation is Required..." and the laptop is not really a laptop...

Listen in here for details.
