It seems that I've been trying to remember how to spell
guarantee for years, and I still find myself doing the right-click-fix, every. single. time.
Are there any tricks / mnemonics for this word?

I don't know. Guarantee and guard are two words that seem to have a superfluous 'u', and in French they both omit the 'u' (garantie and garde). Normally the 'u' would be there to harden a 'g' before 'i' or 'e' in words of Latin origin, but it's useless here and therefore I can't think of an easy way of doing it!
