Savvy Saver 05/29/19: Afterpay Saves You Money
Budget Tip Of The Week: Split the cost of your online shopping payments using Afterpay.
Afterpay is a software that allows you to split your purchase into four equal payments over the course of a few weeks so that you don’t have to pay the full price at the time of purchase. Afterpay is free to use and there’s no interest charged as long as you make your payments on time. [Swirled]
Definition Of The Week: Pre-tax benefits
These are the perks your company or employer may offer you, such as health, dental and life insurance, or retirement account. The money you contribute to pay for your portion of these is taken out of your paycheck before federal and state income taxes. This helps lower the total amount of money that you are taxed on, which helps you save in the long run. [Swirled]
Digit Of The Week: $5
The amount of money you can start investing via apps like Stash and Robinhood. Stash is all about the personalized investments, while Robinhood makes buying and selling stocks in the market super easy. The apps are free to download and also offer educational information that could help you up your financial game.
