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: Matt scored his $1,250 credit card signup bonus, judging others if they have an old phone, digital driver’s license, targeted ads on streaming, trip stacking, Kim Kardashian’s crypto kerfuffle, a new Robinhood app feature, robots disrupting the labor market, AI rejecting millions of resumes, and one simple way to score a better job.
- Disable your TV’s ability to track everything by turning off ACR (automated content recognition)
- We don’t want you to think we love to hate on Robinhood. But it concerns us that they’re making it almost too easy to ‘invest’ your money which is a problem if you’re doing things in the incorrect order. You need to have a plan.
- And here are some direct links to both Goodwill and Google’s certificate programs that could allow you to take the quick path to a higher paying job.
- 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!
