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: raising deductibles to save on premiums, raid our bookshelf, crypto in the vernacular, Christmas tree inflation, keeping your head on Black Friday, bucking consumption trends, a massive right to repair win, a tanking market in 2022, going with an EV to save money, & how to avoid arbitrary asinine hospital bills.
- Raid our bookshelf! To win a few books that we’ve been reading lately head over to Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts, leave us a review, and then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do that before Wednesday, December 1st by midnight, and you’ll be entered into the book giveaway where we’ll be giving away a bunch of books to 3 lucky listeners. Keep in mind, it can be an old review- just email us as well and you’re entered to win! We’ll announce winners on our next Fri Flight episode.
- Listen back to our episode with Meg Normann if you’re looking for some inspiration to spend less this holiday season.
- 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!
