Time for our Friday Flight! These episodes are a sampling of 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 get ahead with your money. In this episode we explain some relevant and helpful stories like: SBFraudster, mortgage rates mellowing out, shopping around for your mortgage, cars that last, shop till you TikTok, brutal losses for retail traders, actively managed funds (under)performance, preparing for retirement at 25, & tricky tax forms.

  • Mortgage – Maybe you know that you’re going to purchase a home- well be sure to shop around with a company like Credible in order to find the best mortgage for you.
  • Cars – Of course, the easiest way to not have a car payment (other than paying in cash), is by not getting that car in the first place! Hear our thoughts on cutting a car from your life.
    • There are so many reasons why we’re huge fans of at least checking out PolicyGenius for auto insurance. Remember, they’re an insurance marketplace so they allow you to compare the best plans for you!
  • Newsletter – Don’t forget to sign up for the best personal finance newsletter in all the land! It’s completely free and something we create to help you along your journey to financial freedom. It drops every Tuesday morning and you can always unsubscribe if you don’t dig it!
  • Credit Card Tool – Looking for the right credit card for you? Then check out our new credit card tool that’ll help you to easily filter through all the cards based on your preferred airline, whether or not they have an annual fee, or simply by the cash back offer! Just toggle the sliders and you’ll know which card to consider.
