Congrats to 2017 Thrifty Guy of the Year winner Keith F! His wife nominated him for the contest and cited how his thriftiness has enabled them to retire at age 55. He’s also been able to rack up some $13k in credit card sign-up bonuses in two years! Wow. Here’s to Keith and all the other thrifty guys out there! Thanks to all who entered and Ooma for sponsoring the giveaway.
