Tip to Save Money

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Riede Real Estate, Lic. 01310792

Cell PhoneWhile showing homes for sale in Sacramento and waiting for the home buyer to meet me at the house I found some information that will save you some money if you call 411 and get charged for those information calls.

Google has a nationwide information source that is absolutely FREE. It works on cell phones and landline phones.

Program it into your phones and save some money...we all need to save as much as we can and every little bit helps.

1-800-466-4411

or

1-800-goog411

Now, if I could only find FREE Starbucks!

Now, Twitter  that one...

Do you have any free items to share with everyone during this troubled time in the economy?

Every little bit help!

Hey Gena - I had read about this on another post some time ago but had forgotten all about it.  I now have it programmed in my cell phone - thanks for the reminder!

I love this feature too . . . what I really like about it is that it will connect you to the number as well for no charge.  I use it all the time while in the car as it really saves on writing/dialing!  Good for you for passing on the news!

Hi, Thanks for sharing I just added to my phone book. I also would like to recommend Google maps on your pda phones. I don't have GPS and my provider charges additional so with google you can map your current location and also if you need help with driving directions.

Margaret, yes that feature is terrific.  Something that I have in my car that I find useful is on the visor and it's a white board with a pen attached and an attached mechanism that when moved left to right erases what I write. A good thing to have while driving to jot down an MLS # someone calls about etc.

I use Goog-411 fairly frequently. Sometimes it can be frustrating and sometimes it is funny when the computer comes up with a listing completely unrelated to your query. It saves me a lot of money though, which is a good thing.

Thank you - it is in my phone!  I can't remember how many times I have called 411, got the wrong number, called them back to tell them and got charged again!  And still had the wrong number - go figure!
