Peloton recently announced that you could now finance the purchase of a new Peloton bike. Is it a good deal? Here are my thoughts:
Buy Without Financing: As detailed in my earlier Peloton blog purchasing a Peloton bike without financing costs about $3,000 when you add in delivery, $468 subscription fees for the first year, $125 for clip-in shoes, exercise mat, etc.
0% APR Financing: While a 0% down APR sounds like a great detail, the devil is in the details. In addition to the cost of the bike, shipping, shoes, etc. to qualify for the 0% financing you need to commit to a 39-month subscription totaling $1,521. By my math the grand total over the 39-month period will be almost a $4,053 commitment when you add all the extras.
Readers, this is the opposite of one of my usual blogs. This time I need YOUR advice. Call it the “Upside Down” blog (that is for all you ‘Stranger Things’ fans out there…).
As some of you know I am the proud mother of two 7 year old twin boys. I wouldn’t say that they are “spoiled” but they’ve been given a lot of toys over the years, whether its from Santa, their generous aunts, uncles, and grandparents or Mum & Dad. Some get loads of use while others gather dust in the corner until they magically disappear…
Here is a review of about 20 toys. Some are classics that you will remember as a kid and others are one hit wonders.
WARNING: What you are about to see is a budget friendly home gym that will not look anything like you have pinned on Pinterest. You have been warned…
Last year we converted an unfinished area of our basement into our own mini-exercise room. We put up one wall, installed a couple of doors, a dropped ceiling with recessed lights, a TV and interlocking rubber floor mats. We painted the cement walls bright yellow and bingo – a home gym. The only thing left is mirrors. Here is a step-by-step (budget conscience) guide to how we did it.
Hi, welcome to my first blog. We moved into a new house last year that already had speakers wired for sound but there was really no good spot for a large stereo receiver. Instead we bought four Sonos CONNECT wireless receivers. A little pricey but it really helped with our seating options in our small living room by not having to position a bulky entertainment center. We set the Sonos receivers up in the basement, ran speaker wire to the speakers upstairs and presto! We now can play music in our living room, dining room, sun room and by the pool all from the Sonos app on our phone. We can access Pandora, Amazon Music, our music library on Apple iTunes, etc. We are very happy with our purchase! The app is very intuitive and easy to use.
