I lurked for a few years on SD while chasing down black friday sales, Nintendo Wii’s for flipping, then saw people posting/complaining about FW so I went and found FW. Joined FW in 2005. I’ve got a few FW shirts from my participation.
Was jumping back and forth with SD for hot deals, posted a lot on SD for rebate deals but found FWF to be far more educational and interesting. Then became a student of FWF during the financial meltdown and read the CD threads, Saving account threads, Mortgage threads and used car buying thread. Recently, it was mostly the stocks threads and banking bonus threads. Reading the discussion allowed me to open investing accounts for bonuses. Missed out on free ipadmini and Dell monitors from some optionshouse brokerage. I did do some trading after reading the stock thread and I followed others into Caribou coffee, Netflix after it nosedived after the flixster fiasco allowed me to get a 5 bagger. Loved reading the threads with the lone Apple Fan boy and everyone calling him/her out.
I’m a cheap skate, so hopefully I’ll be able to apply my “filter” to the forum to help people save while I learn about investing to earn more.
Hoping that we can all do our best to replicate and exceed what FWF was. Been reading how good it used to be and how FW was dead the past few years. I’m hoping we can make this a better home without worrying about the owner selling out and kicking us to the curb. Speaking of, thanks to the Old timers and admins who put this site together.
Lastly, hope these guys from FWF also join us.
