Lemonade Insurance Review

Homeowners and Renters Have New Options

Insurance, using the traditional model, has gotten a bad rap in recent years. These policies, once designed to protect us with a promise to indemnify (a fancy term simply meaning, “make whole”), have become cumbersome with claims being denied for seemingly no reason. Many people have found that insurance is not something we want to discuss unless we’re complaining.

Lemonade Insurance seeks to change that. They even go as far as saying that their aim is to make insurance delightful. How do you go from a product that most people have developed a bad taste for, and take it all the way to delightful? By creating a product that turns the industry on its head.

Have I piqued your curiosity? Continue reading this Lemonade Insurance review to learn more.

Several years ago I was sitting around having a beer with a friend of mine and he started talking about travel hacking.

At first, I sat there thinking this guy was going to land himself in jail for dark web kind of stuff. Then we talked a little more and I realized he was more a genius than a criminal.

No, he wasn’t some hacker sitting behind a computer screen. Instead, he was traveling the world for nearly nothing.

Are you starting to get a little curious as to how travel hacking works?

CIT Savings Builder Review

A savings account is a necessary tool for achieving your financial goals. Getting into the habit of saving money early, even in small amounts, can be a powerful way to increase your wealth.

Having savings means that when an emergency strikes or a great opportunity comes your way, you’ll be able to get through it comfortably without maxing your credit cards or taking out a loan.

For something so important, you’ll want to shop around for the best savings account. Newsflash: not all savings accounts are created equal, so it’s crucial that you do your research.

Recently, I’ve started managing more of my finances through online tools, including online banking accounts. CIT Bank, which is an FDIC member, is a completely online bank that is redefining banking in the digital age.

What I’m excited to tell you about is one of their most recent innovations – the CIT Savings Builder account.

Credit Score To Buy a House

Looking to Boost Your Credit Score to Buy a House?

Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or looking to upgrade, you’ll want to make sure your credit is in good shape before you buy a house. Why? Because along with your down payment and income, your credit score is one of the biggest factors that determines your ability to get a mortgage.

Having a good credit score also means you have more power in negotiating with lenders to get a good interest rate. In some cases, with a good credit score, you may even be able to eliminate PMI that might otherwise be required.

Basically, your credit score is one of the most important tools when it comes to buying a house. If you’re ready to boost your credit score to buy a house, here are the best strategies.

Note: If you are not sure where your credit score currently stands, I recommend Credit Sesame. You can sign up for a free account and receive monthly updates on your score.
