Playlist: Returnaholics

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace Money, Friday, December 3, 2010

Do you know a returnaholic? You know, those people who love to buy, then return things, just for the pleasure of it. It's usually harmless, but we took a look at when it can become an addiction, and why. Janet Babin also looked at how return policies have been changing. Jennifer Collins took on the Groupon challenge and tried to see how many deals she could in a week: it was quite a few, but big lessons were learned on the way. We also had a story about a frustrating case involving a family trying to keep their home. Tess spoke to John Bogle about his new book "Don't Count on It!" on investment, while commentator Sydney Lagier gave her big tip on how to really save for early retirement. Here are the songs we played:

  • Gettysburg - RatatatBuy
  • Arco Arena - CakeBuy
  • Morse - Nightmare on WaxBuy
  • Driving at Night - Joe SatrianiBuy
  • Falcon Jab - RatatatBuy
  • Track 8 - Ratatat
