Being a hedge fund analyst has taught me a lot about getting value for your money. You buy stocks that are trading below their intrinsic value and you make money once other investors see the true value of the business. I’ve taken this lesson and applied it to my spending; I don’t mind spending more for something, as long as I’m getting the right value for it. PlatePass is the complete opposite of getting value. The service they provide is minimal, yet they completely gouge you on the pricing.
