Paula Deen has been gone just long enough for people to forget why she left, which is probably why she just got $75-plus million from a private investment firm.

In Vegas, the house is losing out big time

  • $1.35B the net loss that casinos in Nevada reported losing in 2010, the fifth year in a row that the industry has lost more money than it’s taken in. Part of the reason this year? While revenue is way up, so are expenses. Sounds like now’s a good time to roll the dice. source

Overstock made a lot of money in Bitcoin form yesterday

  • $130k the amount that online retailer Overstock.com says it added in retail sales on its first full day of accepting Bitcoin as a form of currency. While it only represented a total of about 840 purchases, those 840 people spent more than $150 per order on average, and while their purchases leaned tech, they also included some of the company’s other strong points, such as home decor. source

Federal contractors can currently make more than twice as much as the president

  • $952k the maximum amount in pay from the federal government that individual federal contractors can currently receive—a number that’s nearly tripled since a cap on contractor pay was first set in 1998. The Bipartisan Budget Act, which is currently in the Senate, would cut this cap in half, to $487,000, but a standalone bill would cut things down even further. For comparison’s sake, President Obama makes $400,000 per year. source

usatoday:

You might call it the Starbucks card for the 1%. Or this year, perhaps, for the 0.5%.

For the second year in a row, Starbucks is rolling out an ultra-limited edition, $450 metal, gift card for the holidays — pre-loaded with $400. But this year, it’s literally five times more exclusive. Last year, the coffee giant made 5,000. This year, it’s making a mere 1,000. Here’s what it’ll buy you.

In a twist, Gilt accidentally posted, then deleted, the cards a day early.

Pardon me, I didn’t know this was a thing. And I just saw that people are reselling the cards on eBay and for a whole lot more money.
