Money at 30: The Cost of Pet Ownership: Our Actual Expenses with a New Dog (So Far)

Last week, my wife and I welcomed a new member to our family as we brought home a pup we've decided to name Rigby (in case you were wondering, our friends have a dog named Eleanor). Miss Rigby is two years old and is a Frenchton. Specifically, she's apparently 3/4 French Bulldog and 1/4 Boston Terrier — although we think her face looks more Boston overall. Anyway, as you can...

U.S. Bank, Opendorse Create Financial Fitness Program

Of all the topics that most students learn in college, unfortunately, financial matters are typically not among them.

One of the data points the Fed looks at as part of this study is the percentage of Americans who could afford to cover a $400 unexpected expense.

Money at 30: Are FinTech Accounts Worth it When APYs are High?

After more than two years of near-nothing interest rates, high-yield savings accounts are back. Over the past several weeks, APYs across several accounts have skyrocketed and, in many cases, are now pushing toward 2% APY (as of this writing, that is). And, with the Federal Reserve widely expected to keep raising interest rates, these could go even higher shortly. So, the question for me has become: If more traditional savings...

Credit One Refreshes Wander Card with New Travel Rewards

Less than one year after introducing its Wander rewards credit card, Credit One is revamping the offering. Specifically, while the original card featured rewards geared toward outdoor enthusiasts, the updated card bears more in common with traditional travel cards.
