I got a pretty cool email the other week from USAA. They asked me if I wanted to check out their new iPad app before the rest of the world saw it (woo!).
I really really did, but I really really also didn’t have an iPad :) Nor have I ever touched one in my entire life, haha… So they sent me one! And that’s where my jealousy starts…
For one thing, I now want one. It’s like a supersized iPhone just waiting to be played with. And for another, that app is CRAZY. As in crazy AWESOME. And I’m not just staying that, or getting paid for that matter (although I totally should… they might as well name me their official Mascot! Haha…) I’d actually never have to log in on a computer again w/ one of those things. Not that that’s totally horrible or anything, but the idea of it is incredibly sexy. Using your fingers to do some online banking? Shooooooot. Any day! And apparently this is the first app for the iPad that allows people to manage their insurance, banking, AND investments all in one place. But of course, you have to be a USAA member to rock it ;)
Sooooooooo for all my USAA readers out there, this is for you! If you’ve got an iPad, check it out and let us know what you think (it’s now live to everyone… I slacked on blogging about it earlier. Oops.):
PS: For those wondering, I had to return the iPad. I considered stealing it but of course USAA knows where I live and would then cut me off from all my accounts! Instead, I just cried for 2 hours.)
Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
