Financial Freedom Products

Welcome to our Financial Freedom Products page!  Below are products that we use on a frequent basis, that help us on our road to Financial Freedom!  Each one has either made our lives easier, added wealth to our balance sheet and/or has added income to our pocket.  We will list out articles for our review, a brief synopsis and a disclaimer that – yes, these may contain affiliate links – which, we would never put on products that we would not touch/use ourselves.  Enjoy and strive for Financial Freedom!

The Financial Freedom Product List

1. iBotta – We have both been using this app for years and have earned back hundreds of dollars!  This application on your phone gives you cash back for when you go grocery shopping!  Even scanning them a receipt gives you money back.  It’s so easy to use and the best part – you are getting money back on purchases you would normally make – on beer, milk, cereal, shampoo, toothpaste, etc..  All we have to say is, “You Gotta, iBotta!”.

2. Ebates – You have seen the commercials, the advertisements, and the name nearly says it all.   We have each used Ebates for a long, long time and have earned hundreds of dollars cash-back.  This website is simple to use and adds just a few seconds to your shopping experience.  When you are shopping online, make sure you stop by Ebates first to see what Cash Back percentage you can earn by accessing the website through their portal.  Nearly EVERY store is on this website.  So chances are, you are missing out on cash back if you don’t stop by Ebates before checkout!

3. Robinhood – This wonderful application is SO easy.  The best part – when you sign up through the referral link YOU get a FREE SHARE of stock from a company!  There are NO trading fees using this application and I recommend this to all that want to keep costs low/at $0.  Further, there are plans to have a high yield savings account within the application and could be one of the best platforms to stay!

4. Acorns –  This investing app was once of the first applications to allow you to invest the spare change from your purchases.   The idea is simple.  With each purchase, you invest the spare change by “Rounding Up” your purchase.   For example, if you purchase groceries for $10.15.  Acorns will automatically invest $.85 in one of 5 mutual funds that you select based on your risk tolerance! The process is completely automated, making it very easy to use.  Based on your purchase volume, your portfolio, and dividend income, can grow quickly!

5. Bumped! – This wonderful application is ahead of its time.  Similar to an eBates or a cash-back site, you get STOCK BACK for FREE, for buying the products and services you use on a daily/monthly/yearly basis!  Example – that monthly Verizon bill – your credit card that is linked to pay that, and is also linked with Bumped App, once the monthly service is paid – will give you a % back to your Bumped account in stock!  Further, this has NO IMPACT on your normal cash back you receive from your credit/debit card.  This is to create brand loyalty and is a no-brainer way to start building up shares in an investment account!

6. Swagbucks – It is always a blast earning “Swags” each day.  Swagbucks is allows you to redeem Swagbacks for PayPal cash or gift cards to nearly EVERY major retailer.  On top of it, earning swags is easy and quite frankly, a lot of fun.  Like Ebates, Swagbucks allows you to earn cash back via online shopping.    But there are also MANY other ways to earn Swags:  watch videos, answer daily polls, answer surveys, sign-up for new products, play games, download apps.  This list may seem long, but there are plenty of others that were not included.  We mean this, stop by the website and see if you enjoy it as much as we do!

7. Lively – Do you have multiple HSA accounts from different employers and you aren’t sure what to do with them?  Or are you tired of your company’s HSA provider nickel and diming you with fees? If so, Lively may be the solution for you! Lively is a no-fee HSA account that is changing the game.  Lively allows you to either keep the funds in cash and earn an above-the-market interest rate or to invest the funds in a TD Ameritrade account (subject to TD’s brokerage fees).  The best part is that YOU can pick the investments for your account and are not forced to pick from a menu of high-fee mutual funds.  The process to sign up is simple and the company is as transparent as you can be!  It is worth checking out.
