Friday Flight: Mortgage Lending/Refi News, Online Spending Trends, and Pumpkin Spice – Episode 246

August 28, 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 practical topics like the true cost of a pumpkin spice latte habit, the delay of the additional refinance fee, but at the same time some lenders are asking borrowers to waive their ability to request forbearance, and how some companies are beginning to restore hours and salary cuts made back in the spring. After all of that we touch on stimulus check updates, why we should be alert to the fact that online spending has skyrocketed, a new proposal pertaining to health sharing plans, and then what to do with a credit card that has an annual fee.
