Money at 30: Capital One SavorOne Rewards Credit Card Review

As I look through my wallet and the credit cards I use most often, I realize that I've neglected to formally review one of my favorites: the Capital One SavorOne Rewards card. Sure, I've mentioned it in plenty of previous posts (including my annual "personal credit card strategy" articles), but I've failed to give it its due in terms of a full-fledged guide of its own. Let me correct that...

Money at 30: Uber Eats Nationwide Shipping Review — A Goldbelly Competitor?

Last month, Uber Eats announced that it was expanding its platform to include Nationwide Shipping. In addition to their regular delivery and pickup options for local restaurants, this new feature allows customers to order items from a variety of locations around the country and have them shipped. Immediately upon hearing this, one name came to mind: Goldbelly — a similar concept I previously reviewed. Nevertheless, with my interest piqued, I...

Varo Bank Review

Last year, Varo Money made history by becoming the first FinTech firm to be awarded a national bank charter — resulting in the new name Varo Bank. Although I hadn't previously used Varo Money, they always struck me as an intriguing service that put its customers first. So, is that same spirit still present in Varo Bank? Let's take a look at what Varo Bank has to offer, including the...

Money at 30: Cashback Monitor Review

As most people these days are surely aware, shopping online comes with many conveniences and advantages. Among them is the fact that there are a variety of rewards and cashback platforms that consumers can use to score themselves a better deal. The only downside to this is that, with more portals popping up all the time (and their offers updating daily if not even more often), it can be difficult...

Lemonade Renters Insurance Overview (2022)

For as long as I've written this column, I've been a big advocate of renters insurance. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, it seems the majority of apartment dwellers and the like still don't carry policies to protect their belongings. Luckily, Lemonade is changing that by flipping the script on the insurance model and making it easier to get a policy. Let's take a look at what Lemonade is, how their...

Money at 30: "Things That Matter" Audiobook Review

A couple of years back, I reviewed the book The More of Less: Finding the Life You Want Under Everything You Own by Joshua Becker — a popular blogger (Becoming Minimalist) that I've continued to be a fan of. After reading it, I was inspired to start my own journey in the direction of minimalism, while admittedly falling well short of being a full-on convert. More recently, Becker released a...

Money at 30: Everplans Review

As I've detailed many times before, I have a metric ton of bank accounts these days thanks to my duties as a FinTech reviewer. Because of this, every so often, my wife will see a new debit card come in the mail and half-jokingly ask, "So, how am I supposed to find all of these accounts if you die?" That's actually a really good question — and one I'd honestly...

Money at 30: Karat Creator Card Review

I don't remember the first time I heard about Karat — but I know I've seen it plenty of times since. Each time I'd come across it on Instagram, I'd visit their site, only to learn that it was still invite-only. Luckily for me, a few months ago, I actually came across an invite code and was finally able to apply... only for the platform to seemingly open up to the...
