Citibike

Hi - Regarding the annual Citibike membership, you can ride for 45 minutes for free and pay $2.50 for each additional 45 minutes. Is it possible to just dock a bike at minute 40, then immediately unlock a different bike to avoid the extra fees after 45 minutes? Thanks

Traditional IRA Contribution

If I make enough money so that I cannot deduct the IRA Contributions from my taxable income (and I don’t plan on doing a backdoor Roth), is there any point in contributing? It seems like my money would be getting taxed twice just so it compounds tax free. Might be worth it but maybe not.

Why don't you plan on doing the backdoor Roth? That is the obvious choice here. I would not do a nondeductible traditional IRA contribution and then not do the simple step of Roth conversion.

Yea, I think this is the sure thing approach

A Roth IRA contribution is better than a taxable account, and a taxable account is better than a non-deductible tIRA contribution in most cases.

So, if you have IRA space and can't deduct your tIRA contribution, just make a Roth or backdoor Roth contribution.

Chicken Cutles

What’s up with chicken cutlets sandwiches? Haven’t seen these much outside of New York.

2 points · 11 days ago

When they're fresh they're tasty. When they're old and nuked they can be gross.

Other cities do chicken parm sandwiches. They're not a rarity.

But chicken parm does not equate to chicken cutlets?

Turkey Bacon

Hi - I just moved to the Upper West Side from the South. I love the neighborhood and city but had one question...all of the deli's I visit only serve turkey bacon and not normal bacon. Whats up with this? Does it have something to do with the religions represented? Thanks!

Sounds like you're going to a kosher deli and what you're looking for is a bodega. Try Andy's.

It's against their religious beliefs to sell and cook pork.

Credit Card Question

Hello, For years I have had a Target credit card to get he 5% off. I recently moved to NYC and won't be going to Target for the foreseeable future. Should I just close it out or is there any reason to keep it open? I don't want to have to check it once a month. Some personal info, I am mid 30s, have good credit, and am well off financially. I don't use the Target credit card for anything besides Target. Thanks!

Just FYI, they will attempt to close it out if you don't use it for ~1 year.

Source: Have a Target card. Didn't use it for over a year.

Thanks. Best comment hear by far!!!

Also, by keeping it open, you still have a chance of them converting it to a MasterCard that can be used and earns cashback at other places (still 5% at Target but also 2% on gas, restaurants, and travel, as well as 1% on everything else), if MyFICO forums are any indication.

Yes, but I don't have to do the dishes or go to the store. Going to the store at 6pm on a Monday night is a 3 hour trip. I use my lunch hours for my day job to shop due to this. I eat at my desk and my second job is in the bush and there are no lunch breaks (I'm a photographer of ultra sporting events in remote places) and I'm hiking, squatting, climbing and chasing athletes. I don't eat crap and I know how to manage my energy levels.
