Money at 30: Mode Phone (and Current Rewards for Android) Review

A few short weeks ago, I shared my review of an app called Current Rewards that allows you to earn gift cards and cash just for listening to music (although you'll need to do a bit more if you want to really earn points). As I noted in that review,...

American Express Platinum Card Review 3

Money at 30: Audible Premium Plus Review 3

About one year or so, after hearing commercials for the service for years, I finally decided to try out an Audible subscription. Granted, I had purchased individual audiobooks from the platform over the years, but hadn't considered the membership. Cut to today and I've used Audible Premium Plus to download...

Money at 30: Fold Bitcoin Rewards Debit Card Review 2

Not long after I reviewed the Bitcoin rewards app Fold, I got an email informing me that I'd made it off the waitlist and would now have the opportunity to try out their new debit card. What's more, as an early adopter, I had the chance to see the product...
