A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the web. This week: figuring out if a rebate is worth mailing it in, figuring out if it's always worth trying to save a few cents, what DieHard is really supposed to mean, Easter baskets for grown-ups, and whether online degrees are worth it.

1. Are mail-in rebates worth the hassle?

[The Digerati Life] This question caught my eye because Money Talk News has written about it before (5 Tips to Win the Rebate Game). The conclusion here? “What a rip-off!” Amen.

2. Frugality tips and ‘red flags’

[The Simple Dollar] Sometimes I enjoy reading about other people’s weird attempts to save money, even though I’ll never try it myself. Here’s the story of a woman who empties her dehumidifier into her washing machine to save water.

3. Sears sues maker of sex-enhancement spray over ‘DieHard’ name

[The Consumerist] I also enjoy reading consumer news that makes me laugh. Sears suing a sex aid because it’s named after its car battery brand? You be the judge.

4. How to make an Easter basket for a grown man

[Wise Bread] Money Talks News did a story called 7 Tips to Save on Easter, but our friends at Wise Bread took it an amusing step further: “Lunch, tool, and tackle boxes are awesome alternatives to the pastel-colored wicker baskets.”

5. Does an online school provide a valuable degree?

[The Dough Roller] With online classes becoming more popular, the question is: Are they more economical? The verdict: Depends what you want out of them.
