DollarDays International, a premier Internet-based product wholesaler to small businesses and local distributors, and First Bankcard, a division of the First National Bank of Omaha and a leading provider of credit card and small business solutions, today announced the launch of a new small business credit card that was specifically designed with the small business owner in mind.

It's Too Expensive to go to College Anymore

Posted by admin on Sep 17, 2013 2:57:50 AM

According to the Census Bureau, there are 59 million people 25 years or older who hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. Business continues to be the most popular major with 12 million grads, while Education was the second most popular, with 8 million. The median income for high school grads who never went to college is $28,659; for those with some college but no degree, it is $32,036; those with a college degree $49,648; and those with professional degrees $87,356. This translates to lifetime earnings of $3.3 million for a doctoral degree, $2.3 million for a college degree and $1.3 million for a high school diploma.

According to College Data, the average yearly budget to attend an in-state public university is $22,261. The average at a private college is $43,289. CNN reports that the average college student in the class of 2013 faces $35,200 in debt. Putting that into perspective, the profile of the average US household consumer debt shows we all owe $15,263 in credit card debt, $147,591 in mortgage debt and $31,646 in student loan debt. In total, American consumers owe $11.15 trillion in debt of which $994 billion is in student loans, a 4% increase from 2012.

Teachers have it rough, but kids are the ones who suffer

Posted by admin on Sep 4, 2013 7:24:22 AM

By Marc Joseph, CEO & Founder of DollarDays (Reposted from The Huffington Post)

With the start of the school year, we have yet another terrifying shooting incident at the McNair Discovery Learning Academy elementary school in Decatur, Georgia. This is less than a year away from the tragedy in Newtown, CT. Between Newtown and Decatur, the U.S. has experienced 12 other shootings at schools. I just can't image how much stress this puts on all teachers. Our dedicated teachers do what they do because they have a passion to help mold the future of this country, foster creativity in young people, develop character in students and help people lead productive lives. They become teachers because of their sense of service. Having to protect kids from shootings was not part of their original job description -- but it is now.

Why DollarDays is Testing International Waters

Posted by admin on Aug 9, 2013 5:42:50 AM

Upon cursory inspection, the DollarDays website appears to be as American as Chicken McNuggets. After all, the site’s name is not RupeeDays or YenDays, and there’s a U.S. flag peeking out from the banner on the home page. Since its debut in 2001, the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based online wholesaler and closeout-goods vendor has been distributing a wide array of low-cost merchandise to dollar stores, gift shops and other discount retailers, the vast majority of them in the U.S. All of the 300,000 products available on the site are sourced in the U.S., too.

DollarDays CEO Marc Joseph is not exactly leaving those American roots behind—but he is expanding his root system. Joseph, who founded the site because he thought the cost efficiencies of Internet-based distribution “would give small businesses a chance to play on a level playing field with the big guys,” today is growing his e-commerce business by using the Internet to go global.
