If you are like me, over the past two months, you shopped, merried and rang your credit card pretty hard. If you cannot pay off the balance in full, you’re looking at paying 10%-29% interest on your purchases. PLEASE – don’t start the New Year paying interest on a credit card. That is soooo 2017. You need a new card that allows you to transfer your current balance onto it. You can save yourself hundreds to thousands, depending upon what kind of hot mess you got yourself into.
It’s crunch time. We’ve got about 12 days to take care of a few things before 2017 turns into a pumpkin. If you have already met your deductible for prescriptions, you might wanna reload your meds. If you have a Health Savings Account that needs to be used or losed by year’s end – use it or lose it! Remember, rhyming is more important than proper grammar. If you want to write off your donation in 2017, get on it!
Happy New Year! Well, well, well. That gift card from your aunt has been sitting on your dresser for days. It’s to that restaurant you loved when you visited her in South Carolina as a kid. Unfortunately, she didn’t know that:Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right? Well, you’re not stuck. Don’t hang out front of the store like some slicky-boy (or person from THE FLORIDA PROJECT) asking customers if they want a discounted gift card.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
