Following companies in my account announced dividend increases  in last few weeks.

BBL : They increased the september payment from 1.26 to 1.56 . I have 67 shares of BBL so this will increase my dividend by  $20.

MSFT : Increased its dividend from 0.46/quarter to 0.51/quarter and this will add another $3.2 in my account.

Frugal savings Ohmconnect review

As part of  my frugal savings ,recently i started using the ohmconnect ,some of the other Apps i use are Ibotta,receiptpal,fetch rewards. Now all of them are not the same level of  savings.  During the last few months of the summer i have been seeing high  electric usage due to AC and high fan usage. Started looking into how to reduce my electric bill or are there any options . This is where ohmconnect comes, from there website it mentions when there is high usage either we generate more electricity using not clean methods or try to  save  power by lower usage.

Ohmconnect asks us to reduce the power usage by incentivizing with points and which can be redeemed for Amazon gift card or paypal cash.Typically they ask to  you reduce power usage 1 hour a day  and this hour is called “OHMHOUR” and maybe 3 or 4 times a week. Based on how much usage you reduce you get base points and if you are on some of kind of streak  then there is another bonus and finally depending upon the your membership level you get more bonus.

Since i joined i participated in 5 Ohm Hours and currently my savings are at $9 and my recent hour needs to updated with points

100 points =1 dollar

so my last ohmhour produced me a saving of $5 for that hour.

I also got a $10 for joining using a referral  and i referred a neighbor got $20.

Things i do to save  during the ohmhour is try to switch of the non important things ,or plug off laptops,TV,charging etc.

One of the thing is its not available in all state ,only CA and TX with smart meter hookup.This way they can connect to your meter and get the readings.

I read the AMA of the founder and its interesting answers more questions how they save and make money.
