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 interesting and helpful stories like: micro weddings are here to stay, The Great Resignation, increased employee benefits, acquiring new skills, solid 529 plans, parent PLUS loans are the worst, making millions from speed cameras, vehicles are lasting longer, spending more money on restaurants than groceries, subscription everything, and the best credit card sign-up bonus.

You can’t beat the Chase Sapphire Preferred!
  • Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!

    Kind of a disappointment to learn that the chase credit card rewards must be used to purchase travel through their website in order to receive the full $1250 value. Would have been nice if you had mentioned this during the podcast.

    • Hey James!- while it’s true that if you want actual cash, you’d only get $1,000 (which is still amazing), you can get the full $1,250 value by redeeming those points as a statement credit in select categories which are currently dining, grocery stores, home improvement stores, and others so you don’t have to spend it on travel! In our opinion this still makes this a fantastic card for most folks!
