barbara, what are your thoughts on pet insurance? is the long term value worth the monthly cost? >> that's a great question. it depends on you and your animal. there is no standard policy and pet insurance companies exclude different breeds and services so you need to read the fine print. none cover preexisting conditions and you need to purchase it before you dog really needs it like yourself. the cost is 10 to $90 a month but if your insurance is in place and your pet requires medical treatment it can be a lifesaver. that is probably the best reason to buy it. all of a sudden, you're confronted with a bill for thousands of dollars. if you've already been paying all along you don't have to make a life or death decision, the service is going to be there. >> april from san francisco asks, what's the best way to
4:48 pm
approach my landlord about lowering the rent? >> i think you ought to try it. it is tough. you have to really get yourself together and talk face-to-face. let your landlord know you love living there and don't want to leave and decrease in rent would help you stay and maybe offer to maintain premises for decreased rent. your bargaining power depends not only on housing demand, what they want you to believe, not true, but your value as a tenant. landlords want to avoid the hassle of screening applicants and losing rental income in between you and the next tenant. that's what you play off of. i will be here a long time and won't cost you money. >> i bought a washer that ended up not working after the first cycle. i called the manufacturer for the resolution and they referred me to the store. is that correct? >> yes. it's a very good deal.
