Erin Lowry broke on the scene six years ago with her bestselling and groundbreaking book Broke Millennial. Today she’s back on the podcast to dive into lessons she WISHES we’d learned from her original book and tips from her new workbook. We’ll chat about credit, emergency funds, managing debt, reward points, and more!
In our headline segment, who knew that you couldn’t buy things with zero cash today, promise to pay installments, and NOT DO IT? #shocker. Pay later apps like Klarna and Affirm are in the news. We’ll explain why on today’s show.
Of course, we’ll also throw out the Haven Lifeline to a lucky Stacker (today it’s Will…go Tigers, Will!), Doug will share a helping of trivia, and much more.
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.
