    Marvelous thing about the 401K TV. It compounds your interest in the shows you watch.

    It probably is a better investment. The younger you are, the more so. But of course, that’s not the choices that will be presented to you. If you go to an electronics dealer, they will want to sell you electronics. If you go to a broker/dealer, they will want to sell you investments. No one expects them to be familiar with each other’s products.

    Investment? In two years’ time its market value will be zero.

    If those are the prices, I’ll look elsewhere.

    The salesman has his “this” and “that” in the wrong order.

    At Bell Telephone Laboratories in the late ’60s, we called it The Bell System Savings Plan.

    I’m 90% retired. I buy, sell, and repair electronics to bring in a bit of change and keep my mind sharp. I think every piece of electronics I have was “pre-owned”, and I’ve saved a ton of money. I did break down and buy a new Dell 2 in 1 laptop that really caught my eye, no regrets. My motto for many years was, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without”. That was recycling before it became popular. Now I adhere to the four Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair.

    what is the point about a TV I can only use ten or 20 years from now on?

    Since I finally have a decent income and a positive long-term job outlook, I’ll take one of each!

    If he buys it, it will be great for the salesman’s 401K.

    Does that mean I can defer paying for the TV until it’s 65?
