Savvy Saver 05/22/19: Shop These Sites For The Best Finds


Budget Tip Of The Week: Find free stuff on sites like OfferUp, Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace.

These websites often have items sold by private sellers who want you to take the items off their hands. From bikes and clothes to pots and purses, you could end up scoring some things for free, saving 100 percent of what you would have paid anywhere else. [Swirled]

Definition Of The Week: 401(k)

A 401(k) is an employer-sponsored retirement account where you can put pre-tax money from your paycheck directly into an account for your future. Often times, employers will also match your contributions up to a certain percentage, allowing you to save even more. A 401(k) is most often offered by a private company. [Swirled]

Digit Of The Week: 850

The highest credit score anyone can achieve. Credit scores range from 300 to 850, with 800 to 850 being excellent, 740 to 799 being very good, 670 to 739 being good, 580 to 669 being fair and 300 to 579 being poor. Rule of thumb? The higher the better. [Swirled]
