The lower class
95% of the time raised poor. Can't see past tomorrow.

The middle class
Realize the value of both hard work and brains. See money as simply the means to have a home and a few of the essentials and pleasures of life.

The upper class
Realize the virtue in being the very best. Never stop competing or expanding no matter how much money they make. Want to lead, not follow, above all other things. Want to make the history books. Usually humble with their words, but extremely competitive with their actions.

Slightly more expensive shit that needs to be replaced on bimonthly, biyearly, bidecade cycles forcing you into wage slavery

Buy one very expensive item and it lasts for the next 40-50 years thus making it cheaper over its entire lifespan and freeing you from the shackles of a shitty life with 40 year mortgages and no satisfaction

You still need to spend lots to get high quality goods that last a long time. Take shoes as an example, go buy a shit pair for 20$ and they'll last you 3-4 months of use at most. Spend about 100$ and you'll have them for 2 years of use but if you go and buy a very good pair of high quality shoes for about 300$ you'll have them for the next 10 years

I've had the same pair of shoes for work for the past 5 years, I spent 250$ on them and i've just maintained them really well and they look brand new still. I've had coworkers who try and go cheap and they have to keep replacing their shoes every year or every 8-10 months if they go cheap enough.

@Inmate
Very expensive items are just cheap shit with luxury branding.

'no'

Very expensive items are bespoke, thus made at the highest level of quality.

What you think is "very expensive" is actually not that expensive.

For example, a bespoke pair of shoes is worth $3,000 at least, but it will be literally immortal.

Now, a $500 pair of shoes may just be a "luxury" item of meh quality... or a quality item if you're buying from a shoemaker (Crockett & Jones, Carmina, J. M. Weston) and not from a luxury brand (Paul Smith, Gucci, Saint Laurent).

@Evilember
$300 is the entry level for quality shoes.

A good $300 pair (i. e. goodyear welted) WILL last 10 years if you do take care of it, and do resole it when needed.

And it will look better in 10 years with patina.

Obviously you should have several pairs, not just one, to avoid a premature death of your shoes.

Oh yeah but that's a big cost, obviously I won't spend more than like 60$ on regular shoes. Work boots and nice dress shoes are expensive and you shouldn't cheap out on them or they'll just cost more over its entire life

Run a cost benefit analysis and ensure you're not getting marginal returns, make sure you're getting the best value.

Also it depends on if you can afford it.

If you're a multi-millionaire making $20k/month then spending $1000 on a ridiculously nice dinner date isn't going to hurt you at all

@RumChicken
Then probably not.

I think it all depends on value.

buying fancy watches - example

Difference between a $20 walmart watch and a $250 watch? Bretty good, huge difference in quality and looks, price is only $230 difference.

Difference between a $250 watch and a $2000 watch? $1750 and negligible returns on the quality and looks of it relative to how much more expensive it is.

Just think like that. The flying first class thing for example, why? Difference is MUCH more money and very little bonuses you get (a little more leg room, nicer food, better airconditioned, etc) Not worth it

JunkTop
JunkTop

@VisualMaster
Yes.

Anyway, a $2,000 watch will often cost $250 used (check that on eBay). Buying used stuff is essential to have the best value.

Houses, cars, and even minor stuff like books or watches are best bought used.

The only things I don't like to buy used are electronics (too shady, too many potential problems). I enjoyed buying used clothes back in the day, but it costs too much time to find the right item at the right size.

Eh I'm not specifically saying used ( although that's obviously right in many cases ), but rather weighing the value of the items vs their price.

I think that's a way better approach than being a frugal little kike who cries about spending $200 on something yet also not being a poorfag who buys all "luxury" because "xD if it's more expensive meens it's better"

That's biased though.

The reason you think people do that is because you see the ones who DO that and since they're rich and able to afford it you think rich people do it.

You don't see the normal guy with a regular haircut in a Polo shirt and Levi's wearing an unimpressive watch just walking around casually outside, because you don't assume he has a high networth.

I've had quite a few family friends who are very rich and they're just normal people, only difference is they can afford a lot of nicer things but appearance-wise they don't look all that much different from less rich friends, other than maybe they're much more chill because they have no stress in their lives from being so well off

New wealth mostly.

One of my rich friends 62 y/o is 3rd generation of wealth, they're net worth is ~120M I'd guess.

He drives a 4 y/o Linlcoln and his wife drives a 2 year old Mercedes S-Class. The wife bought the S-Class from a friend who used it for 1.5 years and didn't like it, decided to switch to a Bentley.

The only thing that they have that's expensive is their house, cost about 8 million to build & maybe 1-2M in additions over the last 5-6 years.

Old money doesn't like to be flashy in public, is what I reckon. They'd rather spend their money on traveling/leisure and keep their wealth intact for future generations.

but anyways, have you not considered the aesthetic reasons for watches? In the 21st century, the timekeeping is only a secondary trait. People buy watches based on how they look (an to some extent what they represent). This is one of my favorite watches, because I thought the $90 it cost me was worth it. Basically, watches are a low form of art

Old money doesn't mind flashing money. It's just that old money understands when it's not worth being excessively flashy. They know what they have. They don't care what anyone has to say about it. They don't need to. Anyone who judges them is probably somebody they don't give a fuck about anyways.

New money doesn't understand this. They understand that being respected is important. They understand that quality is a commodity. Someone in a beat to hell shitbox car is going to be looked down upon, and a decent new car is respectable. To them, it's logical that a premium car is better.

What new money doesn't understand is that there's very hard diminishing returns, and that past a certain point, very few people will care. To them it's linear, not logarithmic. Old money sees past the immediate horizon, and decides that the benefit isn't worth the added effort and cost. New money assumes that it is worth the effort, because they haven't seen enough of the picture to realize that it's not.

He's not really wrong though. Admittedly the prices are kind of low.

I have a pair of basic flat sandals that I bought for 200 bucks and I've had them for 17 years. Admittedly I only wear them for 4-5 months every year, and not every day then, but they are quite comfy, and made out of some stupid hard composite. Good work boots are waterproof up to ~6 inches and will last you 3-5 years of heavy use, are like walking on clouds, and set you back 4-500. I'm not a general contractor, and I still wear them when I'm going to be on my feet a lot.

If you just want basic shoes, you can't really go wrong with a pair of merrells, or some other decent brand, which is frequently in the 80-150 dollar range.

Debit cards charge your money, whereas Credit cards use the bank's. They're obviously more interested in restoring their money than yours, so they take much quicker.

POS's exist everywhere, I don't like carrying cash either.

those programs are always capped at like $1500 and dont apply to every purchase. If you were truly affluent the headache of having another bill/account to keep track of wouldnt be worth the novelty of a few cents back for your loaf of bread

No one here is affluent, but 3% cashback on everything adds up. if you spend several thousand a month on your CC buying the same shit you usually do, that's $500+ a year you get for free.

$500 a year might not be that much but it's something. It adds up, and it's not like it's any harder to use a CC, so it's literally free money.

If my wallet get's stolen, I go home, make a phone call, and my credit cards get disabled. Amex will hand deliver a new card to me within a couple of hours, at no charge, and the other ones will arrive in the mail shortly thereafter. I'd be out the cost of replacing my license, and nothing else.

Debit cards don't have the same level of fraud protection, and cash is more less guaranteed to be lost forever.

I don't eat at hotdog stands or use street vendors, but even if I did, they generally accept credit cards here.

It's not borrowing anything when you pay it off at the end of the month.

You literally just described why it IS borrowing. You give back shit you borrow. Did you read your own post before you dribbled over the submit button? There is objectively nothing better than spending the money you have.

I realize that Americans are the only ones who are sucking the credit teat, you basically have to use it otherwise you're fucked in the ass by very poor debit services. Its not like that in the UK, I never have to have a credit card here, and both get the same levels of protection against fraud by law.

People fall on hard times, it happens. If they're credit users it'll only fuck them up more. Again, there is nothing better than just spending the money you have, not this pseudo-borrowing shit.

You literally just described why it IS borrowing. You give back shit you borrow

I would consider borrowing when you take a month+ to pay it back and you pay interest.

This way it's just a deferred payment, I guess you could consider that borrowing still but not really given that you have the money to pay it off and you do so before the interest comes in.

Gullible child's mentality.

Explain how it's not free money.

Because I've been using a credit card since I was 18 years old and I have yet to pay any interest or have any problems.

borrowing is only borrowing when its usury

No, I think you need to look up the dictionary definition of 'borrowing'.

but not really given that you have the money to pay it off and you do so before the interest comes in.

So you're buying shit on credit when you already had the money for it at the time, then you pay back the debt (it is technically a short-term debt but a debt nonetheless) with the money you didn't spend at the time of the purchase. Absolutely fucking retarded, its a mess waiting to happen and you know it. Call me old fashioned but I think using the money I currently have sitting in my account to purchase things is superior.

Explain how it's not free money

It comes from someone who incurred additional charges for late payments and such, that money is distributed to all the credit whores who are well behaved at the time. When you inevitably run into some financial fuck-up no matter how small, your charges will be distributed to the well behaved credit whores at the time.

Its a terrible system to be a part of and support.

@haveahappyday
cool. i make less phone calls than you and dont have to worry about 4 different fraud departments calling to investigate

I make 2 phone calls. One for my amex cards, and one for my visa cards. The only annoying part is dealing with the DMV and waiting 2 days for new visa cards for the handful of places that don't take amex.

There is no investigation for me to worry about. I move several hundred thousand a month through my business card. I'm a 'high volume' customer with a stellar history. Even if I was lying about someone using my cards to buy a carton of cigarettes, the amount they make off of my transactions in a month means it's worth just writing off the loss and continuing on like nothing ever happened.

I have never been called back about a fraud/stolen card report.

It's easier for me and it gives me ~$500/month back of F R E E money.
I have yet to have a "mess" that is waiting to happen, until then I'll keep paying this way.

When you inevitably run into some financial fuck-up no matter how small, your charges will be distributed to the well behaved credit whores at the time.

Haven't run into a financial fuck-up in quite a few years of using credit cards.

Also I have more than enough money to cover any financial "fuck up", so it's not a problem.

Its a terrible system to be a part of and support.

I don't care. It works for me and works well. Losers pay for winners I guess though, so as long as retards keep failing to pay on time they're giving me more rewards, not bad.

Wealthy people generally get cards with good "convenience" perks like vacation planning, booking flights/hotels, getting hard-to-get tickets, getting restaurant reservations, etc. Generally cards with good customer support like that have relatively high annual fees upwards of $500 but generally these people spend more than enough annually for the cash-back to cover the fee.

@iluvmen
You literally just described why it IS borrowing. You give back shit you borrow.
You seem confused. The process is to use your credit cart to buy whatever, then pay off the card before the end of every billing cycle so you don't get charged interest. If you have a worthwhile card, it'll have cash-back or rewards of some kind so you'll end up getting some percentage of whatever you spend back in some form.

For example, if you spend $1000 on a card with 1% cash back, you will receive $10 back on your purchase. If you pay off the card before your next billing cycle, you wont pay any interest. Net of everything, you get $10 back for free; this sort of thing adds up over a year to give you upwards of $200-500 back depending on whatever your reward rate is and how much you spend on it over a year.

I'm actually finding this quite amusing. Every time a point that you cannot refute comes up, you just start resorting to petty insults. This all started because you made some ridiculous comments about credit cards, and now it's continuing because you seem to feel that you need to defend both your ignorance, and your apparent stupidity.

Life lesson for you. When someone calls you out on being incorrect, and backs it up with evidence, consider the possibility that you might actually be wrong. Failing that, at least have the common sense to tuck your tail and run instead of continuing to make a fool of yourself.

Yeah, your mostly anonymous here, so you have no real consequences for being an idiot, or a jackass, but this sort of attitude is going to eventually cost you if it ever crops up in real life. For your sake, I hope you either change the way you think and behave, or are one of the handful of people able to keep your internet persona separate from how you function among general society.

Generally cards with good customer support like that have relatively high annual fees upwards of $500 but generally these people spend more than enough annually for the cash-back to cover the fee.

It's also tied to the transaction fees. Amex charges several percent more for most merchants than visa, mastercard, discover, etc. Even on their simple cards, you get far better customer support than the equivalent cards from other companies.

The premium cards all have 'high' annual fees (well sometimes high volume customers get the fee waived. My plat amex has no fee, and they don't take it out of the perks either), but the support is absolutely incredible. If you travel, you can call them and have them plan half the trip for you. If you tend to stay in good hotels, they probably have partner agreements to get you perks. Centurion lounges in airports have excellent seating, and an agent that is intimately familiar with the airport and local area.

Will you save more by staying at random hole in the wall hotels and flying on cheap surplus tickets? Yes. But that takes effort. The market for the premium cards is generally people who are willing to pay not to care. To someone moving 100,000 or more through a card, a 500 dollar a year fee is probably relatively inconsequential. Especially if they travel a lot. The lounges alone are worth 500 a year if you fly more than a few times a year.

Is freedom to travel whenever and wherever important to you? going to need to spend time and effort to find a job and skills so you can telecommute or work unfixed hours

can you suffer for a few years for a garunteed easier couple decades, or is time more valuable to you now? (have kids in their youth right now? joining the army in 6 months?)

what is most precious to you?
what effort are you willing to give?
what can you live without?

Chinese crap
you... what?
kingston and corsair are pretty much the best brands you can buy here.

it's just even in a cheap webshop their price is 2-3 times what you can buy them from china. that's because they buy bulk from china but it gets toll, vat, some bullshit digital media tax and the profit of the importer and seller and also shipment cost added on.

so why would i want to pay 2-300% for the same item? especially as china ships free.

this question is pretty much Veeky Forums related and related to this thread also. if you want to buy something wouldn't you buy it for half the price?

kingston one of the best brands?

I've experienced it differently, kingston has always been just okay, but a brand I liked a lot more for storage has been sandisk and samsung.

well, mostly you should get the one who has one of the most orders, and check if it uses "chinese registred air" for shipment, or else you're going to wait a very long time.

mostly "chinese registred air" takes about 2 weeks here (The Netherlands)
but "shippers method" mostly took about 2-3 months, and one time It got as bad as 5.

You can never trust the chinks, but if you really want to be sure to get a genuine product, go to Gearbest. I got most of their products in about 2-3 weeks.

i mainly choose the kingston in the end because the water and shock resistant version is at a pretty great price. you find flashdrive cheaper with same high speed and capacity sure, but this one looks like it can withstand some accidental abuse.

and that's great about choice, I require it to be as portable as possible, and you require it to be durable.

i want this to be a travel backup device i don't want to take the external hdd with me.

i have a nail sized pendrive already for daily use. it was getting small for storing movies for the tv to play and stuff like that still great for work. only downside i noticed is it overheats fast and speed keeps dropping as it heats up.

@takes2long
nail size drive? what one?

Smallest one I've been able to create is a kingston microsd flat reader with a micro sd card in it that I keep in my wallet.

Mine's not quite as small but I've found it very useful.

Straight razors and Dovos and shit are designed for someone else shaving you. Safetys aren't. Not only that, but you don't have to fuck about with stripping, honing, etc.

Dunno about anyone else, I just kept scratching the fuck out of the crystal somehow, even when I had it replaced with a more durable material.
Some people just aren't compatible with watches, dude.
A phone isn't much different than a pocket watch.

I'm not a huge Warren fan, but overall this is one of the best posts in the thread.
