Money at 30: Savely App Review

For the past 18 months or so, planning travel has been a bit treacherous and frustrating to say the least. Meanwhile, many haven't even bothered trying to plan a trip for fear that it will likely get canceled (see: my latest booking cancelation). However, with at least some hope on...

Mint vs. Personal Capital: How Do the Finance Platforms Compare? 3

Living into today’s FinTech-rich world, it’s almost difficult for me to think back to how things used to be. Using pencil and paper or even spreadsheets to manage budgets? Having to visit a bank branch or ATM to check an account balance? And I can’t even imagine actually balancing a...

Money at 30: Yotta vs. PrizePool 1

In my time as a FinTech app reviewer, I've encountered a lot of interesting and mold-breaking banking offerings.

Aspiration Banking Review (2021) — Are Recent Changes for the Better? 7

There was once a time when I thought perhaps I had too many bank accounts. Yet, since then, I’ve only found more attractive accounts to open. One of the additions I made to my roster back in 2018 was Aspiration. Not long after I opened an account, several things started...

Money at 30: Current Banking Review

I like to fancy myself a bit of an aficionado when it comes to FinTechs and neobanks, seeing as I've reviewed plenty of them in the past. Yet, while I may have heard of some such options, I'm occasionally taken aback at just how big some of these players are....
