Friday Flight: Credit Scores Rising, Easy Small Dollar Loans, & Shake-ups in Streaming – Episode 273

October 30, 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 and helpful stories like the uptick of biking in cities not known for biking, protecting your bike, traffic fatalities and how we perceive risk, streaming content shake-ups, avoiding the trap of becoming a payment buyer, misleading GDP numbers, increasing credit scores and free credit reports every week, 2021 IRS retirement contribution guidelines, and small dollar loans or emergency funds.

  • On the note of protecting your bike, a basic U-lock is plenty for 99% of most people. That’s actually the exact lock I’ve used for over a decade and it has served me well.
  • As T-Mobile looks to take over the world, why wouldn’t they get into streaming content?
