I'm sorry - with everything going on I haven't taken the time to get links to everyone's blog on here. If I have time this weekend, I'll do it then. You can get to other people's blogs by clicking on their name as they leave notes here - it will take you to their "dashboard", and then you can find their blog from there. Your weekly notes can be on anyone's blog, as long as you use the current posts
Here's an example on how to do your blog analysis for Monday:
This is the article I'm using, mostly because it's about buying new cars, which my husband and I just had to do. If you go about halfway down the page, number 3 says "compare incentives". Now if you remember one of the first things we looked at was a statement that said "incentives work." And they do - take a look at this from the article:
"If you're considering two similar (but different brand) vehicles, incentives on one of them could be all the incentive you need to make the choice between them. " Absolutely true. If all other things are equal, a person will choose the car with the incentive that fits their lifestyle best.
"You can also use incentives on one brand as a negotiating point for the purchase of another." Another great point - you can play sellers off each other.
Incentives are a basic point of economics, and can really affect what you do in any situation. After all, which would you choose...something plain, or something with a cool incentive, if there were no other difference between them? That's called "all things being equal" (ceteris paribus) - if there is no difference other than the one thing, you can analyze the situation.
