>> A Simple Way to Automate Your Savings

One of my favorite ways to save money is with the Digit app. It’s an app that saves small amounts of money. (Update: The Digit app used to be free. Now they’re rolling out a $2.99 per month membership fee to use the app after a 100-day free trial. I’m reviewing another free savings automation tool as an alternative. So hold tight!)

The automatic transfers move from your checking account to the Digit account. The transfers are typically from $5 to $50 and only if you have money to spare. Wanna know how good it works? Just last November I saved up money in the accounts for trips to the Caribbean.

The four savings accounts that listed in the post above offer boombastic amounts of interest and the post explains why these accounts pay out more than your typical bank branch next door.
