Here’s how much it costs to attend the Super Bowl

Individual tickets to attend the Super Bowl in-person hit a record high last year, and this year’s game is shaping up to be no different. Last year, the average resale ticket price was $5,682, according to SeatGeek, while 2017 prices were $4,487. “Historically, at this stage, we typically see ticket prices in the $5,00-$6,000 range going into the championship weekend,” he says.

Here's how much it costs to attend the Super Bowl

Individual tickets to attend the Super Bowl in-person hit a record high last year, and this year’s game is shaping up to be no different. Last year, the average resale ticket price was $5,682, according to SeatGeek, while 2017 prices were $4,487.

Fans should expect to pay between $4,000 and $6,000 for a ticket this year, Scott Jablonski, General Manager of NFL for StubHub. “Historically, at this stage, we typically see ticket prices in the $5,00-$6,000 range going into the championship weekend,” he says. Generally, the prices stabilize on Sunday and Monday once the teams are set.

On Friday, the cheapest ticket price for seats in the upper endzone section were selling on StubHub for $3,475 each. Jablonski says that for those looking to score the ultimate deal, they’ll need to wait to the bitter end. “Usually as you get closer to game time, I’m talking six hours, three hours, one hour into kickoff, then we’ll see the prices come down,” he says. That’s because at some point, for the seller, that ticket is worth zero.

For those looking for the complete Super Bowl experience, On Location Experiences (the “official hospitality of the NFL”) is selling game day packages for $15,925 per person for seats five rows back from the field. They include tickets to the game, a three-hour pregame party, meet and greet opportunities with NFL stars and post-game field access for a “confetti-filled celebration.”

Here’s how much it costs to eat like The Mountain from ‘Game of Thrones’

It’s not easy being the World’s Strongest Man. “I’m very disciplined and I’m very focused when it comes to training, nutrition, and everything, and I’m always prepared,” Bjornsson tells CNBC Make It. Bjornsson tells CNBC Make It that he eats seven meals every day. “I want to fuel my body with the best nutrition I can for strength,” Bjornsson, who lives in Iceland, tells CNBC Make It. To eat like the World’s Strongest Man for an entire year would cost you about $$22,228 in total.

Here's how much it costs to eat like The Mountain from 'Game of Thrones'

It’s not easy being the World’s Strongest Man. The current holder of that title, Hafthor Bjornsson — who also stars as Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” — had to deadlift over 1,000 pounds to win the title.

Bjornsson, 30, has to stick to a strict diet to build his strength and maintain his impressive six-foot-nine, 400-plus-pound physique.

“I’m very disciplined and I’m very focused when it comes to training, nutrition, and everything, and I’m always prepared,” Bjornsson tells CNBC Make It. “And, that’s the key to success, I believe.”

Bjornsson tells CNBC Make It that he eats seven meals every day.

“I want to fuel my body with the best nutrition I can for strength,” Bjornsson, who lives in Iceland, tells CNBC Make It. “This is my job, and my body is my job, and I treat it as a job,” he says.

So what are Bjornsson’s daily eating habits?

“Every morning, I eat six eggs, six pieces of bacon, maybe one cup of rice,” he says.

From there, Bjornsson’s next six meals are totally repetitive: Six times a day, he eats 250 grams (about 8.8 ounces) of ribeye steak along with 200 grams (about 7 ounces) each of rice, carrots and red bell peppers.

“For me, ribeye steak is the best meat for strength,” he says.

In order to figure out roughly how much it would cost to eat like the World’s Strongest Man, CNBC Make It determined what all of the food Bjornsson eats each day would cost if you bought it at Trader Joe’s in New York City. Just for one day of Bjornsson’s diet, you would need to buy six eggs, six pieces of bacon, three pounds of ribeye steak, 49 ounces of rice, and three pounds each of carrots and red bell peppers.

The total grocery bill for those items would be more than $60 per day and about $426 each week. (In November, the average cost of a week’s worth of food for a men 19 to 50 years old in the U.S. ranged from $42.50 to $84.40, according to the USDA.)

To eat like the World’s Strongest Man for an entire year would cost you about $$22,228 in total.

All of that eating is definitely paying off, Bjornsson says: “It’s working. I’m the World’s Strongest Man.”

But depending on where you live, you could be spending almost 20 percent of your salary to cover childcare expenses.

And that’s if you’re entering parenthood with a partner. Single parents will spend even more to ensure their children are well-looked after while they’re at work. The cost of center-based infant care exceeds 27 percent of the median household income for single parents in all states, according to data collected by Child Care Aware of America, a non-profit organization focused on improving the affordability of childcare in the U.S.

Childcare fees for families with two children cost more than the average mortgage payment in 35 states and the District of Columbia, while a year of infant care costs more in 28 states than the average tuition bill for a year at a public college, Child Care Aware found.

Below are the 10 places in the country where childcare bills for center-based infant and four-year-old care will cost you the most:

Your Netflix habit costs even more than you think

Even as Netflix hikes prices, many people have no idea how much they already pay for the subscription service — or seem to care all that much.

On Tuesday, the video streaming and content creation company announced its biggest increase since beginning its streaming service 12 years ago. The price boost takes effect immediately.

About 84 percent of consumers in a survey underestimated what they shell out on their subscription services, like Netflix, Spotify and Amazon Prime, according to a report by the Waterstone Management Group, a Chicago-based consulting firm.

On average, consumers already spend more than twice as much as they think they do on those monthly expenses, which includes dating apps, cable television and Wi-Fi: Consumers estimated they spend $111 a month on such services when they actually average $237, Waterstone found in its survey of 2,500 people last year.

And regardless of the price tag, consumers were “happily hooked” on many of their subscriptions, particularly Netflix and Amazon Prime (which had previously raised the price to $119 a year), cable TV and music streaming services, such as Spotify, the report said.

In fact, Netflix’s previous rate increases have had little effect on subscribers, and have traditionally buoyed the stock.

At the same time, families have less slack in their budgets than before, according to research by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Household spending has risen 25 percent or more in the past two decades, even adjusting for inflation, yet incomes have not kept pace, the study said.

In addition, one-quarter of Americans, or roughly 55 million people, have nothing saved in an emergency fund, according to a separate report by Bankrate.com.

Japan has taken measures ahead of sales tax rise, Taro Aso says

Japan has taken sufficient measures to support the economy and a nationwide sales tax will go ahead as scheduled in October, Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Tuesday.

Aso said there was no change to the government’s plan to raise the sales tax, baring a Lehman Brothers-type of crisis.

“The measures we have taken so far should be sufficient” to raise the sales tax, Aso told reporters after a Cabinet meeting.

“I expect Japan’s recovery to continue because of the benefits of the policies we have already put in place.”

Japan needs the extra tax revenue to pay for rising welfare costs, but there are growing concerns the tax hike could damage consumer spending amid signs the country’s economic outlook will weaken this year due to slowing global growth.

He also expects Japan’s economic recovery to continue given the policies the government has put in place that increase spending on infrastructure and subsidize education costs for low-income families.

Japan is scheduled to raise the nationwide sales tax to 10 percent in October from eight percent currently. To soften the blow to consumer spending, the government already plans to extend tax breaks and subsidies to households. Food and some daily necessities will be exempted from the tax hike. The government will also offer tax breaks for purchases of cars, homes and other durable goods.

In addition, the government will distribute shopping vouchers to some households and cash handouts to pensioners with low incomes.

The government also has a separate program to subsidize education costs and another package for infrastructure spending after a series of natural disasters last year.

Despite the measures, some economists and policymakers are concerned about the impact of U.S.-Sino tit-for-tat trade tariffs on the global supply chain, which have contributed to wild swings in financial markets.

Japan is particularly vulnerable to developments overseas because its manufacturers focus on making electronic parts and heavy machinery for export to China and other manufacturing centers abroad.

Walgreens Boots Alliance's plans $1 billion in cuts, stock drops

Walgreens Boots Alliance announced plans on Thursday to its cut annual costs by $1 billion within three years and reported first-quarter results that beat Wall Street’s estimates.

The results also showed sales are struggling in Britain, one of its largest markets, and the stock dropped 3 percent Thursday morning.

Walgreens shares are down more than 2 percent this year bringing its market value to $69.3 billion. The stock has been under pressure as investors worry about the impact Amazon will have as it expands into the pharmacy business. To prepare for increased competition, Walgreens has announced partnerships with Kroger, Alphabet’s Verily and others.

Investors should expect that transforming the traditional drug store business model will take years, CEO Stefano Pessina said.

“Whether it be three or five [years], it is difficult to say because of these [initiatives] take a lot of time to come to real fruition,” Pessina said on a conference call with analysts.

Here’s what the company reported compared with what Wall Street was expecting, based on a survey of analysts by Refinitiv:

Earnings per share: $1.46, adjusted, vs. $1.43 expected

Revenue: $33.79 billion vs. $33.78 billion expected

Walgreens Boots Alliance also announced a plan to reduce annual costs by more than $1 billion by the end of its third year. Targets will include global spending, organization and digitalization of the business. The initial focus will be on the U.S. and U.K., the company’s largest markets.

The company did not disclose the expected cost of these efforts, but said it had already invested $30 million during its fiscal first quarter.

One-time costs for some improvements to its pharmaceutical wholesale division are expected to be between $150 million and $170 million. This part of the program is expected to save the company between $65 million and $75 million per year.

Revenue during the quarter ended Nov. 30 rose 9.9 percent to $33.79 billion, from $30.7 billion last year. The company’s Rite Aid division accounts for some of that sales growth.

However, the company struggled in the U.K. International retail pharmacy sales decreased by 5.9 percent from a year earlier. It blamed a weak retail environment in the U.K. for the decline, despite improving Boots’ market share in the country. Pharmacy sales at Boots open at least a year saw sales drop by 3.5 percent during the quarter from a year earlier, while same-store sales for all other retail fell by 2.6 percent.

The company also said that payment changes from the National Health Service and the sale of Boots Contract Manufacturing affected those sales numbers.

The company expects that its cost management program will help its U.K. business. Additionally, it is planning to roll out new beauty brands and products in its Boots stores.

The parent company reported fiscal first-quarter net income of $1.1 billion, or $1.18 per share, up 37 percent from $821 million, or 81 cents a share during the same quarter last year.

Analysts expected the company to generate $33.78 billion in revenue and adjusted earnings of $1.43 a share. On an adjusted basis, the company earned $1.46 a share.

Walgreens also reaffirmed its forecast of growing earnings per share by 7 to 12 percent during the 2019 fiscal year.

CORRECTION: One-time costs for improvements to Walgreens’ pharmaceutical wholesale division are expected to be between $150 million and $170 million.

Walgreens to tackle health-care costs with Alphabet's Verily

Walgreens Boots Alliance is teaming with Verily, Alphabet’s life sciences unit, on improving outcomes for patients with chronic conditions, the companies announced.

The partnership would increase access to Verily’s technology by deploying them at Walgreens’ pharmacies. A big focus for the companies will be medication adherence, which costs the U.S. health care system some $100 billion to $289 billion a year. Much of this cost is due to increased hospitalizations for patients who get sick when they don’t take their medication as prescribed.

Walgreens CEO Stefano Pessina said the company is committed to finding more affordable solutions for patients and that forging the right partnerships is part of that effort.

“The continued rise in chronic diseases today can be costly to patients as well as to our healthcare system,” Pessina said in a statement. “Working with Verily, we’ll look at how we can best support integrated and value-based care to meet our patients’ needs, as well as opportunities to address other chronic conditions over time.”

Verily CEO Andrew Conrad said that working with Walgreens provides the health tech company “the opportunity to jointly tackle real-world issues that significantly impact the health of individuals and communities.”

Both Walgreens and competitor CVS Health have mentioned lowering health-care costs for consumers as a priority in recent announcements. While competitor CVS Health pursued this goal through its blockbuster acquisition of insurer Aetna, Walgreens has sought to transform itself through a series of partnerships with companies like insurer Humana and diagnostics company LabCorp.

Similarly, it is the latest signal from Verily’s parent company Alphabet that it intends to ramp up in the health-care space.

In November, Alphabet’s Google hired hospital executive David Feinberg to run its new health division, which is focused on bringing its medical AI research into clinical practice. Verily will not serve under Feinberg, but the two groups are closely aligned. For instance, Verily’s head of engineering Linus Upson is currently the interim CEO of that division, but will be replaced by Feinberg when he joins early next year.

The Walgreens collaboration is the unit’s first known partnership in the pharmacy space.

The companies said that Onduo, Verily’s diabetes company, will work together on a virtual solution for Walgreens employees and their family members. This will be available to those who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The details on this program are still vague, but the companies said they’d be part of a broader alliance between Verily and Walgreens.

Onduo was created by Verily and pharmaceutical giant Sanofi to roll out what it refers to on its website as a “virtual diabetes clinic.” It offers supplies and coaching to people with diabetes to help them manage their condition.

Verily, which was initially known as Google Life Sciences, works closely with health care companies from Johnson & Johnson to Sanofi on joint ventures ranging in scope from next-generation glucose monitors to surgical robots.

For starters, I can’t make the same distinctive, high-quality drink at home, or get it for free from work, so I consider Starbucks a fixed cost. When I pay my rent, phone bill and other necessities, and apportion some money toward savings, I budget enough to stay caffeinated until at least the next payday.

That’s a responsible first step. If you can cover your mandatory expenses and have a bit left over, experts say, you’re free to spend your discretionary income on the things that make you happy.

Besides, “you can’t cut your way to growth,” says self-made millionaire Ramit Sethi.

He alludes to the much-maligned habit millennials supposedly have of overspending on avocado toast: “You may have seen an article telling you the only way to be a millionaire is to cut back on avocado toast. Now, suddenly, a million millennials in Manhattan started crying because they couldn’t go out to brunch six days a week.”

But the idea of getting rich by buying less, he says, is “horrible” advice.

After all, “do you know how many avocado toasts you’d have to forego to get just a 20 percent down payment” on a median-priced home? “Is it 100? Is it 1,000? No, it’s over 2,500 avocado toasts.”
