5 Ways to Maximize Your Tax Refund

Posted by S4G on 3/2/2018 to News
5 Ways to Maximize Your Tax Refund
If you're getting a tax refund this year, here are some tips to get the most out of it.

1. Pay down debt.

According to Bankrate.com, the average American family has over $15,000 in credit card debt. If you're in that boat, using yout tax refund to knock down a chunk of high-interest debt might be a smart strategy.

Paying down student loans, or paying off several small credit cards might also be a good idea. Some financial strategists believe that it is psychologically rewarding to completely pay off smaller accounts whenever you can, even if some other accounts might have higher interest rates.

2. Save for a rainy day.

If you have debt under control, make sure you have emergency funds set aside. Calculate how much money you need to cover expenses for one month - food, rent, utilities, gas, bills, etc. The typical advice is that you should have 6 to 9 times that amount in a savings account. Life is unpredictable, and you need to be prepared for unexpected surprises like car repairs, medical bills, etc.

3. Invest in yourself.

Are you prepared for retirement? Are you maxing out your 401k plan? If your employer offers a contribution match, you may want to start there because that's free money. You may also be able to deduct up to $18,000 of it on your taxes. If you don't have a 401k, you may want to consider opening a traditional or a Roth IRA.

You can also invest in yourself in less traditional ways. Some of our customers express interest in starting their own Greek stores. Check out our Greekpreneur program to see if it's a good fit for you (limited availability). 

If you already own a Greek store, bookstore, or a related business, take a look at our wholesale program and maybe offer some new products to your customers. 

4. Give back.

It always feels good to help others. You might consider tithing more to your church, or researching non-profit organizations. Which causes mean the most to you?

At the end of last year, we donated a portion of the Kaepernick shirt and jersey sales to the National Police Accountability Project (NPAP).

This February, we helped the Phoenix Leadership Foundation send over 700 underprivileged youth to see a special screening of Marvel's Black Panther movie. The event gained national news coverage! We have some cool fan art gear inspired by Black Panther fans that just launched too.

And every year, we donate a portion of sales from our Breast Cancer Awareness tees to Susan G. Komen, and to The Pink Frog Foundation.

We look forward to giving more this year, and in years to come.

5. Treat yourself.

If you have all of the above bases covered, it may be time to pamper yourself a bit. Maybe treat yourself to a nice vacation, or splurge on that custom line jacket you've been wanting for years. It just so happens we're having a Tax Refund sale right now, but it's so good it won't last forever. The clock is ticking...hurry! Shop all custom gear now..

A real life horror story.

Posted by stuff4GREEKS on 10/31/2016 to News
A real life horror story.
In the spirit of Halloween, we wanted to share a scary story that happened in real life. 

A group of sorority sisters needed some line jackets, but for some reason they went with a local unlicensed company instead of coming to S4G first.

Look at the photos below that one of them sent us and you'll be shocked! Cheap stick-on lettering...orange letters (AKA's colors are pink and green, not orange)...and just sloppy work in general. Can you believe this!?


Sadly, this is not a hoax. This really happened.
 
Please understand that we are not trying to ridicule these young ladies. On the contrary, we feel sorry that this happened to them, so we are using this story to warn others.
 
If they would have come to S4G first, they would have been given a precise proof to show exactly how each jacket will look before we begin production, and they would have a lifetime guarantee on their embroidery.
 
Plus, our work is super clean and precise when compared to all other companies. Take a look. 

And last, but certainly not least, we are licensed vendors, which means everything we do is approved by and meets the standards of the sorority's national headquarters. We are Greek-owned, and we know the do's and don'ts of Greek paraphernalia.

To their credit, these young ladies wanted to bring their order to us after the fact, but it was too late because the other company already started on their jackets and wouldn't give their money back. What a nightmare! 

We hope it all works out for them. If not, we are here to help.
 
The lesson: Don't let this happen to you. Choose wisely the first time. Whether you need 1 or 1000 jackets, let the experts at S4G to handle your order with love and perfection.

During my self-discovery in college, I was able to maintain a good mindset and took my Greekness seriously. Click "Read More" for some helpful tips to maintain your Sorority...
