2024 SoFi Checking and Savings Review

Ever since I started taking an interest in the FinTech sector, one company whose name I’ve seen pop up over and over again is SoFi. Lately it seems as though that theme has been sent into overdrive as the company has not only become a household name thanks to its stadium naming rights deal but also because of the company’s continued product expansions. The most interesting development in my mind...
American Express Rewards Checking Debit Card

American Express Rewards Checking Review

When you think about American Express, there's a good chance that premium credit cards come to mind. That's understandable as the company not only boasts a $695 annual fee Platinum Card but is also home to the legendarily clandestine Centurion card — AKA "The Black Card." However, did you know that Amex also offers bank accounts such as their high-yield savings account? More recently, the company also expanded by adding...
Chris Guillebeau and Gonzo Capitalism book

"Gonzo Capitalism" Audiobook Review

As I've mentioned before, I fairly regularly look through Audible to find newly released finance audiobooks I might want to review. Not too long ago, I came across one I purchased nearly on sight: Gonzo Capitalism: How to Make Money in An Economy That Hates You by Chris Guillebeau. Released last summer, I'm not exactly sure how the book escaped me until now. Nevertheless, I'm glad I finally found it...
SoFi Invest app

SoFi Active Investing Review (2023)

Has there ever been a better time to be a newbie investor? It wasn’t long ago that trading stocks and purchasing ETFs required “a guy” who you could give orders to and they’d make it happen. Oh, but they would charge you a significant commission for the service. Cut to 2023 and things are much different. Not only has stock market trading moved online, allowing investors to make trades for...

Yes, You Can Earn Cash Back With Dosh

The bottom line is that the Dosh app works as well as I could have hoped for earning cash back and I'm excited to try some of the other features (namely the travel bookings) it has to offer. So, if you're looking to maximize your savings and perhaps even double up on your credit card rewards, I'd recommend checking out Dosh and seeing what cash back you can earn.
Let There Be Money

Book Review: "Let There Be Money" by Scott Santens

For years, I've taken a strong interest in the concept of Universal Basic Income (UBI). In turn, I've followed Scott Santens — a vocal UBI supporter and news source — on X. Yet, it was only a few weeks ago that I realized he had a book out: Let There Be Money: Understanding Modern Monetary Theory and Basic Income. What's more, on Amazon, a paperback copy of the book was...

That's why we've seen a number of apps emerge, each putting their twist on auto-savings and the like. Among these options is Guac — an app that aims to help consumers contribute money toward their savings goals as painlessly as possible. So, how does Guac work and does it succeed in its mission?...

PNC Cash Rewards Visa Credit Card Review

For more than a decade, my wife has been a loyal PNC customer. This includes holding one of their rewards credit cards — which, at one time, was our only credit card. Well, over the years, that's changed a lot as our card mix has evolved. And, now, another change has come as the bank recently moved us over to the PNC Cash Rewards Visa card. So, what does the...

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. However, while we wait for resolution on that front, a FinTech that brings student debt benefit solutions to employers and consumers has raised a new round...
