It’s time for a Friday Flight! These episodes are all about the week’s financial news and the impact on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we distill it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to kick off the weekend informed and help you to continue to make smart money moves. In this episode we cover some relevant and helpful stories like: please send us a voice memo of your best money tip to be featured on episode 500, medical debt officially dropping off credit reports, WTD with your $3,000 tax refund, buyers going on strike, annoying tipping trends, whether grocery delivery is good for your money, dumb ARM mortgages, buy now pay later at the pump, the right to know earnings for degree programs, transparent college pricing, & cell phone family plan pricing forever!
- Refinancing your student loans isn’t a slam dunk decision that everyone should automatically do- luckily we have an article up on the site that walks you through when you should consider refinancing your student loans. But if you are a good candidate and want to refinance before interest rates climb, Splash Financial is who we would recommend. There you can compare rates and listeners of How to Money get a $300 bonus!
- We referenced our 7 Money Gears during this episode. It’s important to know what your next financial moves should be before you take action!
- Be aware of the crucial credit card benefits that you may not be using!
- Cut your monthly cell phone service down to $15 a month with a provider like Mint Mobile– we’ve been using them for years now!
- Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
