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 cover some relevant and helpful stories like: last day to jump on those I bonds, student loan forgiveness in limbo, expensive turkeys, senior discounts for everyone, not-so-discount airlines, luxury bus travel, moving to avoid taxes, young wealthy investors beating the market, day trading dropouts, WFH leading to healthier habits, making time for things that matter, & the fading silver lining of buy now pay later.
