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: an easy site to help you choose the right streaming services, free Apple TV+, how rent payments will help you qualify for a mortgage, what to do about the T-Mobile data breach, paying to cut in line at theme parks, whether an electric vehicle is more affordable for you, drunk investing, investing fee transparency, whether inflation has impacted the price of brown bag sandwiches, & cutting the cost of insurance.
- Regardless if you’re a T-Mobile customer or not, we urge you to freeze your credit!
- If you don’t think fees are a big deal when it comes to your investments, then you should listen back to how Fees Will Kill Your Retirement Nest Egg.
- To find ways to cut your insurance costs, we have an article for you!- and Joel was able to slash his auto insurance costs with this AARP online course.
And here’s one of the distinctions between us and other personal finance fundamentalists out there: we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer, though we don’t want you to be tempted into spending more than you otherwise would. But if you’re looking to maximize your credit card benefits, Chase is offering the best welcome offer we have ever seen. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card is rewarding folks $1,250 after the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
