Never feared it could experience the good life on the cheap.
Brad Wilson is the founder breads deals dot com and the author of do more spend less the new secrets of living the good life for last.
Any joins us live from Mauritania to -- -- this is fantastic first -- -- we want you to explain how to do this.
Bought a car for -- less than you will sell it for.
Next year that's.
You do that -- there's the whole world of groups and organizations that you can join in and as a perk of membership yet discounted prices on new cars.
The -- and -- -- -- there's a group called tread lightly you are joined for a hundred dollars you get a pre negotiated 1% below invoice on Jeep vehicles.
-- the kicker is that these combined with all of the other consumer factory incentives so when they're doing.
Cash rebates if they combine on top of that so this is an example where it in the at this key here is joining this tread lightly outfit -- -- that -- is a GP others I walk through numerous the last how you do that with with GM and Ford in you Mercedes and BMW.
It would in this case your -- buying a car for 21% off 18% below invoice it's.
It really is it that that difference is greater than -- the first your depreciation on the car.
She really buy it sell a year for more and in a sense -- it for free absolutely all right here's another great tip that I I loved.
Burn your miles on the ground for travel for free but a lot of people that's you know -- -- OK I've got to fly all these miles to get miles -- you don't.
That's exactly right so when it when I think of getting a good deal on a flight or trip it's not to me for about going to travelocity -- -- So I -- or five million frequent flier miles and a certain mark -- hit and I certainly didn't get them by charging -- -- democratic right.
So one way that I've done this is is is by getting sign up bonuses and in the case of say credit cards you can.
Sign up for new credit card they'll give you 25303050000.
Miles for spending a certain amount of money in a certain moment time.
For example there's a great deal right now or you did you can get -- -- you can get 50000 miles with a new credit card by spending a thousand dollars.
I I have a list of the other five on on the home page spreads deals if you if you wanted to book -- into that but.
You just so.
The catch is that you know you only want to do that if a you can you only shift.
Dollars that you would have -- otherwise and vicinity right so in a cellphone bill groceries that kind of thing.
Or if you can find a way to generate credit card charges that don't actually cost you money like that time you bought all the dollars from that from the -- that's exactly -- find a way to -- claims from using my credit card and and since records could put them in the bank and pay a democratic signal by something for a dollar they cost a dollar and -- you pay up to build with a dollar that's exactly right.
In -- -- and there's a lot of ways it's of that.
Also use shopping.
To pay for shop.
Yes so when I see a great deal I don't think in terms of buying one I think -- been in terms of buying of -- 220 and actually paying for.
It is it you pay a debt getting for -- don't -- and I want to keep.
It's a great example is we have a great deal on on Brazil's once on on -- products the very hard to discount.
If you you never see never -- -- -- so they were 24% off the senate just find one I bought twenty of the sound -- fifty in the headphones.
I resold nineteen -- -- -- fourteen in the headphones.
I -- a thousand dollars on top of my costs and I got to keep one of -- so that it didn't do a great example of yeah actually using -- Indy today to pay for your own shopping listening check out his -- I just look at it it's breads deals dot com and the book -- or spend less.
