We’re kicking off the week by answering listener questions! And if you have a question that you’d like for us to answer on the show, we’d love for you to submit your own via HowToMoney.com/ask/ , send us your voice memo. Regardless of how random or bizarre you might think it is, we want to hear it!

  1. What is this fixed finance charge on a new credit card that I applied for?
  2. How can I prevent my income based student loan payments from increasing as I’m making more money?
  3. Are there hidden expenses when I invest in funds through Cash App or Robinhood?
  4. When it comes to teaching high schoolers about personal finance, what topics or curriculum should I focus on?
  5. Should we buy a vacation property, specifically a condotel, as an investment?
  • We spent an entire episode talking about the crucial credit card benefits that you probably aren’t taking advantage of.
  • If you like the ease of use that comes with investing via the Cash app or Robinhood, then we’d encourage you to consider investing via M1 Finance since you have the ability to open up, not only brokerage accounts, but retirement accounts as well.
  • If you looking to teach students about personal finance, then be sure to check out Next Gen Personal Finance or even reaching out to our friend Dan LaSalle who we had on the show back in the day to talk about how he had implemented a program in Philadelphia.
  • And it turns out it was App State who has that baseball field in the woods, not ECU.

And here’s one of the distinctions between us and other personal finance fundamentalists out there: we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer, though we don’t want you to be tempted into spending more than you otherwise would. But if you’re looking to maximize your credit card benefits, Chase is offering the best welcome offer we have ever seen. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is rewarding folks $1,250 after the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
