Are you about to spend a grand (or more!) on a new iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or the like? Stop the madness! If you’ll just wait a while, you can get the same model for less. Or consider whether you need such an expensive phone after all. The Cheapskate Show is here to explain why you probably don’t.

We also did a quick Prime Day debrief along with a Black Friday preview. (Hint: Don’t believe everything you hear.) You can listen to the new episode, and past ones, right here:
