- Are you leaving free money on the table? If you have a savings account, go check the APY (annual percentage yield). If you’re not receiving at least 1.5% APY, then you should consider moving your money to one of many that do. For example, Marcus, from Goldman Sachs, is a 1.5% APY, no minimum, no fee, savings account. Compare that to a Money Market savings account at Wells Fargo yielding .01%. Move your money so it’ll make you money.

- Latest study on the best time to buy tickets for your next flight:
In Winter you want to try for 62 days in advance, Spring 90 days in advance, Summer 47 days in advance, and Fall 69 days in advance, on average.
And as for that theory that there’s a best day of the week to buy – CheapAir says that’s not really true. Airfare during the week traditionally doesn’t fluctuate more than $2 from day to day, so you’re fine buying a ticket any day you want.
When it comes to when you fly, there is a difference. The cheapest days to fly are Tuesday and Wednesday, while Sunday is the most expensive.
