Ohh! Some "helpful tips" those were! If USAA wanted to get attention, they should've called their email:
"These 5 weird tricks made Sen. Feinstein collapse in a gutter!" or
"Five wacky tricks the rich DON'T WANT peasants like you TO KNOW!" or
"Clinically insane tricks to win while everyone else loses!"
Of course, it only works if there's a thumbnail pic of some woman with her hand over her mouth, like she's holding back vomit.
What's with tip #1, using their tracker software to manage a budget? Are they really THAT interested in a soldier's daily expenses? Mostly booze and pole-dancers, isn't it? And what large purchases do soldiers make, apart from a gang of strippers? And why is insurance an expense one should NEVER cut back on? Heaven forbid an American soldier doesn't have his iPhone 5S with the "peace of mind" plan fully paid for!
