I know it’s not good for some sectors of our economy but for someone like me who purchases a lot of services and software from the US I’m loving the dollar’s rise.
This morning I had to purchase a new piece of software. The online ordering page offered it to me for AUD$75. Hmmm, there’s an option to pay in USD, let’s see what the price is in that. USD$59.95, which in Aussie dollars turns out to be $55.32. One little switch on the form and I saved myself $20.
