Hacking Your Wallet
It's 2019 and we are looking for those life hacks! And when it comes to our money, we want hacks that can save (and maybe even earn!) us money. Well the new year has brought us plenty of ways to do that, so let's get started.
Customer Appreciation Programs
Some companies provide their customers with great opportunities to save money by offering reward programs. If you're giving their business your money already, why not allow that money to be an investment in future purchases? Plenty of pizza places now offer the reward point system which allows you to convert money spent into points that you can then spend on more pizza!
The best offer that is out there right now is Dominos Pizza. With their new promotion, you can take a picture of ANY pizza using their app and it will convert that picture into points that you may use for free pizza in the future! When I saw any pizza, I mean ANY real-life pizza. Did you order from Pizza Hut? Turn it into Dominos points. Did you make a pizza from scratch? Turn it into Dominos points! 6 Pizza pics will get you enough points for a free pizza using this method. And boom, you just saved yourself the cost of a pizza.
Investments have never been simpler. We live in an age of technology, and oh what a world it is! You can now find apps on your phone that will allow you to invest your money in the future. One of the best investment apps out there right now is Acorn.
Acorn takes the power of 'rounding up' and turns it into cash in your pocket. Let's say you're buying a coffee for $3.45. With Acorn, you can decide to pay $4 even for that coffee and the app will invest the extra 55 cents into a savings account with possibility for growth.
Apps like this makes investing easy and fun. Look for hacks like this when you consider what new and exciting apps to download.
