August 21, 2020

It’s time for a Friday Flight! These episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of Covid-19 on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we are distilling it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to not just weather this health and financial crisis, but to come out on the other side even stronger. In this episode we cover some interesting topics like the cost of the 10 most popular sandwiches you can make at home, why you might be able to negotiate down your monthly rent, a new refinance fee that will begin next month, and how to go about raising your credit score to snag the best rate when it comes time to refinance. After all of that we cover why the increasing cost of new vehicles is a bad thing, executive orders and their impact on student loan payments as well as unemployment relief, the decrease in full-time jobs, and the S&P 500 hitting record highs.
