It’s time for a Friday Flight! These episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of the pandemic 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 and helpful stories like: the current state of fast fashion, whether you need cell phone insurance, a cell phone coverage app to help you save, velocity banking as a mortgage payoff strategy, Ryan Lochte living paycheck to paycheck, foreclosure moratorium and mortgage forbearance extensions, a potential ebike tax credit, how minor car repairs could cost you a fortune, and Bitcoin credit cards.
