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: what to watch out for when switching to an online bank, employer-matched savings accounts on the rise, IKEA buying back your furniture, the easiest way to get all of the shampoo out of a bottle, annoying hotel fees on the horizon, simple tricks to supercharge your retirement account, the underutilized Roth 401k, falling investment fees, avoiding eviction through federal rental assistance, & where to save the most on a refinance.

You can’t beat the Chase Sapphire Preferred!

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!

One comment on “Friday Flight: Employer-Matched Savings Accounts, Annoying Hotel Fees, & Where to Save the Most on a Refinance – Episode 405

    With federal rent assistance the issue lies with the programs. Many of them have stopped accepting applications or haven’t even built an access portal to their city/county. I checked Atlanta and they have currently stopped accepting applications. This is a case of poor management and not poor outreach.
