Don’t look now but Friday is Valentine’s Day! You’re probably wondering what a “chocolates and roses” holiday has to do with finances… and the answer is…A lot. As we’ll find out today, many people don’t hesitate about turning their wallets over and shaking out ALL their cash. But today we’ll help you celebrate in style (or in jest) WITHOUT breaking the bank. Today we’ve invited Sara Skirboll from ReatilMeNot to share with us plenty of great advice on how to find great Valentine’s day dining deals WITHOUT using your whole stack of Benjamins.
Plus, how much do you
hate love reading through dense paperwork and contract terms? It’s safe to assume you probably hate paperwork as much as we do, which is why covering some good news from Fidelity: they’re cutting out 20% of the information that clients must review before opening an account. And in our second headline, we’ll share the latest from a lawsuit between Shannon Dougherty and State Farm. It’s ugly and just got…uglier.
During our Haven Life Line call, we’re going old-school and tearing open a letter from our new BFF Diane. She’s looking for some alternatives to HSAs and long-term care plans. What options are available for people who can’t use the more traditional options?
Of course, we’ll save some time for Doug’s trivia.
