In the corporate world, where he began his career, Ivan Hand’s $1.7 million paycheck for 2013 wouldn’t be remarkable for a top executive. But he leads a nonprofit that gets much of its income from struggling debtors.
I have 18,675 World Points on my TexasExes Bank of America rewards card, which I got for being a TexasEx via a telemarketer to alumni. The card had a low interest rate at first, but it’s popped into the stratosphere. (Don’t ask.) I really want to get rid of that interest rate, and will be calling Money Management International soon for help in getting it slashed. That will mean closing the account, so I might as well redeem the points first.
