Friday Flight 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 a lot of interesting topics like using Netflix payments to boost your credit score, the shortage of disinfectant supplies, upcoming sales tax holidays, working from home into 2021, and the stalled stimulus bill. After all of that we cover reports of surprise covid medical expenses and banks cutting credit lines without warning.
