Would You Accept a Promotion Without a Raise? 64% Of Us Say YES

If your boss offered you a promotion that DIDN'T come with a raise, would you take it?

According to a new survey, 64% of us would, up from 55% in 2011.

72% of men said they'd do it, compared to 55% of women. And younger employees were more likely to say yes too. Probably because they see it as a stepping stone in their career, while older people are more about the cold hard cash.

The survey also found that two-and-a-half years at a job is the average amount of time you should expect to wait before getting a promotion.

1.  Movie tickets - In the summer, lots of movie theaters offer programs that let kids see movies at discounted prices.  So check with your local theater to see if it offers a program like that.

2.  Swimwear and lingerie -  Victoria's Secret holds its semiannual sale in January and June, and lots of other retailers follow their lead.  So it's a good time to save big on swimsuits and underwear.
