Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
Throughout the month of October — assuming you live in or near a participating city — you can get free financial help from a CFP as part of the CFP Board’s “Financial Planning Days.” In short, volunteer CFPs are providing extended workshops on a wide variety of topics.
Many of these “Financial Planning Days” will take place on Saturdays throughout the month, though there are evening workshops in some locations. I’ve never been to one of these so I can’t comment from personal experience. That being said, the topics do look quite useful.
While it’s easy to be skeptical about such things — and I’m nothing if not skeptical about just about everything — they do set the right tone with this program in saying “there are no strings attached — volunteer financial planners will not sell products or services, give out business cards or take down names.”
