Money at 30: "Broke Millennial Talks Money" Book Review

As much as I've enjoyed listening to audiobooks over the past few months thanks to my Audible subscription, this weekend, it was time to return to the world of physical media by reading a book I've had on my list for a while. Late last year, author Erin Lowry released the third book in her Broke Millennial series, following the original and the Broke Millennial Takes on Investing follow-up. This...

What’s Going On With the Uber Credit Card?

A few years back, I got my first new credit card in probably a decade. Since that momentous occasion, I’ve received numerous credit card offers in the mail and have proceeded to throw them in the trash each and every time. I didn’t get any such mailing regarding the Uber Visa card when it launched in November 2017 but I did see it plastered all over the Internet. While, like...

Money at 30: Audible Premium Plus Review

About one year or so, after hearing commercials for the service for years, I finally decided to try out an Audible subscription. Granted, I had purchased individual audiobooks from the platform over the years, but hadn't considered the membership. Cut to today and I've used Audible Premium Plus to download more than a dozen titles — including several that I've reviewed for this site. So, as an Audible Premium Plus...

Money at 30: Are Bank Bonuses Worth It?

Over the past few years, I've reviewed plenty of bank and banking (the latter typically meaning FinTechs that partner with "real" banks for their offerings) services. In doing so, I've occasionally earned bonuses for setting up a new account and performing different tasks. This free money is always welcome — especially since I'm doing it for work anyway — but would I recommend bonus chasing to most people? Let's take...

Money at 30: How Quarantine Ended Up Impacting Our Spending (in Hindsight)

I don't want to jinx it, but I'm really starting to think we could be turning a corner on this whole pandemic thing. Personally, I've been fully vaccinated for a few weeks now while my wife has had her shots since January. Because of this, while life isn't "back to normal" by any means, it's definitely making progress. In turn, our COVID-era spending habits have also been evolving. Around this...

Money at 30: NBKC Everything Bank Account Review

As I've reviewed a number of FinTech accounts over the years, I've seen a few banking partners come up again and again. Among them is NBKC — short for National Bank of Kansas City. Despite this, it wasn't until recently that I opened an account directly with the bank. Specifically, I opted for their Everything Account, which includes some key savings and checking features. With that, let's take a look...

Money at 30: Current Rewards (Current Music) iOS App Review

If you've been reading my reviews as of late, you'll likely know that Instagram has become a surprising source of discovery for me when it comes to new financial apps and services. Naturally, it also frequently introduces me to other products. This includes the Mode Phone, which is apparently an Android phone that pays you to use it. Anyway, when I went to look closer at this phone, I discovered...

Student Loan Benefit FinTech Summer Raises $6 Million

For years, student debt has been one of the most talked about financial topics. What's more, while the debt itself has become a major part of many Americans' lives, discussion of student loans has become political due to efforts to forgive certain loan repayments.
