For BD, who hates the word Cheapskate:

Skinflint:

The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

skinflint

SYLLABICATION: skin·flint
PRONUNCIATION: sknflnt
NOUN: One who is very reluctant to spend money; a miser.


I was going to include etymology information, but the Online Etymology Dictionary seems to have disappeared into that great Internet Bit Bucket.
