Money at 30: "Rich as F***" Audiobook Review

To cap off 2021, I decided to take one last dive into the Audible library to find a financial audiobook that might strike my fancy. What I came across was Rich as F***: More Money Than You Know What to Do With by Amanda Frances. While I'm unfamiliar with Frances, I'd be lying if I said the title and cover didn't grab my attention. Additionally, while the printed version of...

Money at 30: Using My American Express Airline Incidentals Credit

Over the past two years, I've loved using the benefits that my American Express Platinum Card has afforded me. In fact, said perks have also evolved in just the past couple of years, with some temporary additions coming in 2020 and a big overhaul arriving just a few months ago. Yet, amid these changes, one of the card's more complicated features has remained: the airline incidentals credit. To catch you...

Money at 30: Nexit App Review

Spoiler alert: Nexit is the road trip app I’ve waited for all my life. Okay, the “all my life” part may be slightly hyperbolic since apps weren’t really a thing in 1986 when I was born — but it’s been a long time. While map apps allow you to look up how far you are from a given business and other services like GasBuddy aim you toward cheap gas stations,...
