MoneyPlan SOS with Steve Stewart | Budget Wisely | Get out of debt | Pay attention, not interest

starstarstarstarstar

My wife and I went from a negative net worth of $70,000 to no debt, thousands in savings, and a paid-for house. We did not win the lottery or receive an inheritance...we simply PAID ATTENTION - NOT INTEREST. I’ve been inspiring others to pay off their debt, live without credit cards, and avoid the distractions of building credit scores in order to build wealth instead. Below are 5 years of encouraging and educational episodes to help you spend wisely, save more, and escape the trappings of debt. More information at http://MoneyPlanSOS.com

Fractional and Automated Savings Accounts - are they a good idea?

Deanna Richardson from Richardson Accounting and Consulting, PLLC @ theCPA-4U.com asked

“Have you heard of Digit? Seems like a great way to build up an emergency fund and....it says it is free. Then their are bonuses for keeping $100 in it over 3 months. If I did my math right, the bonuses are over 2.5% interest (5 cents / week per $100). Would love to hear what you think.”

I tackle these new fractional, or automatic, savings accounts: Acorns, Digit and Betterment’s SmartDollar
