Not worth it to waste your time... I know someone who is an expert at getting great deals on leases on cars.
That is a very general statement to make. People that are good at it are saving themselves thousands of dollars over the course of a lease.

What's the savings? $200?
Every case is different. My brother hacked a deal on an Alfa Romeo and approached a broker to see if he wanted the same deal. The broker planned on charging an extra $50 a month over the price that the dealer is charging. That is a total of $1800!

If you add Amazon gift cards it will still deduct 20% as long as you have other items in the cart that amount to more than 20%.
This is what my total looked like with a $200 gift card and another $35.34 item.

Amex 20% Off:   -$35.34

I just did this, then I went to the local dealer. They started out very high. They are great salesmen and very aggressive. But they couldn't match the leasing companies. They just couldn't put it together.

Leasing companies do not tell you how they get the rates lower. Many times they are using rebates which they somehow find. My dealer couldn't get the same rebates.

To get a good price at a dealer, you need to come very prepared with all your facts before walking in the door.

You always start off by negotiating as much as you can from the sales price, then you apply the incentives and rebates that you are eligible for.
Showing them that you know the residual value and MF will greatly help.
Leasehacker is a good website for learning the ropes of leasing from dealers.  They also have a very active forum.

Anyone have any comparison between the Explorer and the QX60? If so, how much smaller is the trunk area for cargo?

The 2017 QX60 SUV features 15.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row seat which can be folded down to offer 40.8 cubic feet instead. Thanks to a flexible second row, a QX60 boasts a maximum volume of 76.5 cubic feet.

The Explorer has 21 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seats, 43.9 cubic feet with the third row folded, and 81.7 cubic feet with both rear rows folded.

Credit Cards / Re: Barclays Reconsideration

Whats the allure of this card ?
Different folks have different needs at different times. For years I have only opened cards with large signup bonuses.
I have recently had some very large one-time-expenses and I needed the flexibility to move balances around without interest.

Besides for the Chase Slate, this is the only card that I am aware of that gives you free balance transfers and allows you to pay up over 15 months with no interest. If you know of other cards that meet this specific criteria I am opened for suggestions.

After getting a denial letter for the Ring. I just had a very positive experience calling recon and getting approved for the Ring. They asked me a few questions about income and how much I pay on credit cards a month, and then gave me an approval.
